Final determination of the source and tax status of all distributions paid in the current year are to be made after year-end and could differ from the expectations noted above.

  • On October 24th, 2022, the Board of Trustees of First Trust's ETFs approved a management fee breakpoint policy that will make all ETFs in the complex eligible for a reduction in the management fee charged on assets that exceed certain AUM thresholds. The goal of this policy is to offer reductions in management fees paid by shareholders of larger First Trust ETFs through a process that is transparent and understandable for all investors.
    Effective November 1st, 2022, the management fee paid by any First Trust ETF with assets exceeding $2.5 Billion will decrease, with larger and increased reductions for assets above $5 Billion, $7.5 Billion, $10 Billion and $15 Billion.

    Full details of the policy and additional breakpoint levels can be seen in each fund’s Statement of Additional Information.
