First Trust Cloud Computing ETF (SKYY)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Cloud Computing 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 CTA Cloud Computing Index™.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The Index is a modified equal weighted index designed to track the performance of companies involved in the cloud computing industry. To be included in the index, a security must be classified as a Cloud Computing company by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and meet the following criteria:
    • Minimum market capitalization of $500 million;
    • Minimum free float of 20%;
    • Minimum three-month average daily dollar trading volume (ADDTV) of $5 million.
  • Each security is then classified according to the following three business categories:
    • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS): Companies that deliver cloud computing infrastructure - servers, storage, and networks - as an on-demand service.
    • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): Companies that deliver a platform for the creation of software in the form of virtualization, middleware, and/or operating systems, which is then delivered over the Internet.
    • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): Companies that deliver software applications over the Internet enabling other companies to conduct their operations using the application.
  • The Index employs a modified equal weighted methodology called the Cloud Score Weighting.
    • At every Index evaluation, each security has its Cloud Score calculated by receiving a score for each category (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS), 1 if it is operating in that category and 0 if it is not. The maximum score that can be achieved is a 6 (3 for IaaS, 2 for Paas, 1 for Saas).
    • Each company's total score is divided by the total sum of the scores in the universe to determine the weight of each security. Individual security weights are capped at 4.5%.
  • The number of securities in the index is limited to 80 securities.
  • The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
