*The estimates are based on annualizing the most recent dividends declared by the issuers of the securities included in the portfolio. The estimated net annual distribution for the subsequent year is expected to be less than the amount for the first year because a portion of the securities included in the portfolio will be sold during the first year to pay for organization costs, the deferred sales charge and the creation and development fee. There is no guarantee that the issuers of the securities included in the portfolio will declare dividends in the future or that, if declared, they will remain at current levels or increase over time.

Sales Charges (based on a $10 public offering price)
Standard Accounts
Transactional Sales Charges: Initial: 0.00%
  Deferred: 2.25%
Creation & Development Fee:   0.50%
Maximum Sales Charge:  2.75%

The deferred sales charge will be deducted in three monthly installments commencing 4/20/18.

When the public offering price is less than or equal to $10.00 per unit, there will be no initial sales charge. If the price exceeds $10.00 per unit, you will pay an initial sales charge.

Fee/Wrap Accounts
Maximum Sales Charge: 0.50%

The maximum sales charge for investors in fee accounts consists of the creation and development fee. Investors in fee accounts are not assessed any transactional sales charges. Standard accounts sales charges apply to units purchased as an ineligible asset.

The creation and development fee is a charge of $.050 per unit collected at the end of the initial offering period. If the price you pay exceeds $10 per unit, the creation and development fee will be less than 0.50%; if the price you pay is less than $10 per unit, the creation and development fee will exceed 0.50%.

In addition to the sales charges listed, UITs are subject to annual operating expenses and organization costs.

You should carefully consider the portfolio investment objective, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. Contact your financial advisor or call First Trust Portfolios, L.P. at 1.800.621.1675 to request a prospectus, which contains this and other information about the portfolio. Read it carefully before you invest.

Risk Considerations:
An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust should be made with an understanding of the risks involved with an investment in a portfolio of common stocks and closed-end funds.

Common stocks are subject to certain risks, such as an economic recession and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general condition of the stock market.

Closed-end funds are subject to various risks, including management's ability to meet the fund's investment objective, and to manage the fund's portfolio when the underlying securities are redeemed or sold, during periods of market turmoil and as investors' perceptions regarding the funds or their underlying investments change. Unlike open-end funds, which trade at prices based on a current determination of the fund's net asset value, closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value in the secondary market. Certain closed-end funds may employ the use of leverage, which increases the volatility of such funds.

Certain of the securities in the portfolio are issued by closed-end investment companies which have been elected to be treated as Business Development Companies (BDCs). An investment in BDCs is subject to various risks, including management’s ability to meet the BDC’s investment objective, and to manage the BDC’s portfolio during periods of market turmoil. BDCs may trade in the market at a discount to their net asset value. BDCs may employ the use of leverage which subjects the BDC to increased risks.

Certain of the common stocks are issued by, and certain of the closed-end funds invest in REITs. Companies involved in the real estate industry are subject to changes in the real estate market, vacancy rates, competition, volatile interest rates and economic recession.

Certain of the closed-end funds invest in high-yield securities or "junk" bonds. Investing in high-yield securities should be viewed as speculative and you should review your ability to assume the risks associated with investments that utilize such bonds. High-yield securities are subject to numerous risks including higher interest rates, economic recession, deterioration of the junk bond market, possible downgrades and defaults of interest and/or principal. High-yield security prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated bonds and are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.

Certain of the closed-end funds invest in MLPs. Investments in MLPs are subject to the risks generally applicable to companies in the energy and natural resources sectors, including commodity pricing risk, supply and demand risk, depletion risk and exploration risk. U.S. taxing authorities could challenge the trust’s treatment of the MLPs for federal income tax purposes. These tax risks could have a negative impact on the after-tax income available for distribution by the MLPs and/or the value of the trust’s investments.

Certain of the closed-end funds and certain of the common stocks invest in securities issued by foreign issuers. An investment in a portfolio which includes securities issued by foreign entities should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved, including currency and interest rate fluctuations, nationalization or other adverse political or economic developments, lack of liquidity of certain foreign markets, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.

Certain of the funds invest in senior loans. The yield on closed-end funds which invest in senior loans will generally decline in a falling interest rate environment and increase in a rising interest rate environment. Senior loans are generally below investment grade quality ("junk" bonds). An investment in senior loans involves the risk that the borrowers may default on their obligations to pay principal or interest when due.

Certain of the closed-end funds invest in floating-rate securities. A floating-rate security is an instrument in which the interest rate payable on the obligation fluctuates on a periodic basis based upon changes in an interest rate benchmark. As a result, the yield on such a security will generally decline in a falling interest rate environment, causing the trust to experience a reduction in the income it receives from such securities.

It is important to note that an investment can be made in the underlying funds directly rather than through the trust. These direct investments can be made without paying the trust's sales charge, operating expenses and organizational costs.

An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap and mid-cap companies is subject to additional risks, as the share prices of small-cap companies and certain mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies due to several factors, including limited trading volumes, products, financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information.

For a discussion of additional risks of investing in the trust see the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus.

The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.

This UIT is a buy and hold strategy and investors should consider their ability to hold the trust until maturity. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.
