Investment Objective/Strategy - First Trust Global Wind Energy ETF is an exchange-traded fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the Fund's fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE Clean Edge Global Wind Energy Index™.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The Index measures the performance of public companies throughout the world that are active in the wind energy industry. To be eligible for inclusion in the index a company must be listed on an index eligible global stock exchange and actively engaged in some aspect of the wind energy industry, such as the development or management of a wind farm, the production or distribution of electricity generated by wind power, or involvement in the design, manufacture or distribution of machinery or materials designed specifically for the wind energy industry.
  • Each security must have a minimum market capitalization of $100 million, minimum 3-month average daily dollar trading volume of $500,000 and a minimum free float of 25%.
  • Clean Edge identifies each eligible company as either “Pure Play” or “Diversified”:
    • Pure Play companies derive at least 50% of their revenue and/or generating assets (energy capacity and/or production) from wind-related activities.
    • Diversified companies are those simply involved and engaged in some aspect of the wind energy industry.
  • Pure Play companies are given a collective weight of 60% and Diversified companies are given a collective weight of 40%.The index uses a modified market capitalization weighted methodology for each group of companies. The Pure Play companies are weighted so that the five largest Pure Play companies may not exceed 8% each of the entire index and the remaining Pure Play companies may not exceed 4% each of the entire index. No Diversified company may exceed 2% of the entire index.
  • The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced semi-annually
