First Trust NASDAQ-100 Equal Weighted Index Fund (QQEW)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust NASDAQ-100 Equal Weighted Index Fund is an exchange-traded index fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield of the NASDAQ-100 Equal Weighted IndexSM.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The index consists of companies in the NASDAQ-100 Index.
  • The index is reconstituted once a year in December, but replacements may be made during the year if there's a replacement in the NASDAQ-100 Index.
  • The index is an equal weighted index and is rebalanced four times annually in March, June, September and December.
  • The index contains the same securities as the NASDAQ-100 Index but each of the securities is initially set at a weight of 1.00% of the index and is rebalanced quarterly. The NASDAQ-100 Index includes 100 of the largest non-financial securities listed on Nasdaq.
  • The equal weighting allows for smaller company performance to contribute as much as the large companies within the Index.
