Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Chindia 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 fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE ChIndia™ Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
Index Description According to the Index Provider
  • The Index begins by establishing the total population of companies that are domiciled in either India or China and whose shares or ADRs are listed on a U.S. securities exchange.
  • Remove companies that do not meet the component eligibility criteria which include minimum market capitalization and trading volume requirements.
  • Rank the remaining stocks by their liquidity score. (Rank all eligible stocks separately by market cap and three month average daily dollar volume. Sum the ranks for each stock to get a liquidity score.)
  • Select the top 25 stocks from each country by liquidity score. If less than 25 stocks are available for a country, then continue selecting stocks from the other country until a maximum of 50 stocks are selected.
  • Weight according to the following methodology:
    • top three ranked stocks in each country are weighted at 7% each.
    • the next three in each country are weighted at 4% each.
    • the next three in each country are weighted at 2% each and the remaining stocks are equally weighted.
  • The Index is rebalanced on the application of the above model on a semi-annual basis.
