First Trust Alerian Disruptive Technology Real Estate ETF (DTRE)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Alerian Disruptive Technology Real Estate ETF, formerly First Trust FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Markets Real Estate Index Fund, seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Alerian Disruptive Technology Real Estate Index. The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks, real estate investment trusts ("REITs") and depository receipts that comprise the Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
