*As of the Initial Date of Deposit. The ratings are by Standard & Poor's and are unaudited. A credit rating is an assessment provided by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO), including Standard & Poor's Rating Group, of the creditworthiness of an issuer with respect to debt obligations. Standard & Poor's ratings are measured on a scale ranging from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). Sub-investment grade ratings are those rated BB+ or lower. Investment grade ratings are those rated BBB- or higher. "NR" indicates no rating.

**The securities are first redeemable on the date and price listed. Certain of the securities have provisions which would allow for their redemption prior to the earliest stated call date pursuant to the occurrence of certain extraordinary events.

***As of the close of business on 1/26/18. Market values are for reference only and are not indicative of your individual cost basis.

*The estimate is based on annualizing the most recent dividends declared by the issuers of the securities included in the portfolio. 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: 1.35%
Creation & Development Fee:   0.50%
Maximum Sales Charge:   1.85%

The deferred sales charge will be deducted in three monthly installments commencing 5/18/18.

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 consider the portfolio's investment objective, risks, and charges and expenses carefully 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 owning trust preferred securities, such as an economic recession, volatile interest rates and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the trust preferred securities or the general condition of the stock market.

You should be aware that the portfolio is concentrated in preferred stocks and trust preferred securities issued by companies in the financials sector which involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The financials sector is subject to the adverse effects of volatile interest rates, economic recession, decreases in the availability of capital, increased competition from new entrants in the field, and the potential for increased regulation. Preferred stocks and trust preferred securities are typically subordinated to bonds and other debt instru ments in a company's capital structure, in terms of priority to corporate income, and therefore will be subject to greater credit risk than those debt instruments.

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.

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.

Although this portfolio terminates in approximately 15 months, the strategy is long-term. Investors should consider their ability to pursue investing in successive portfolios, if available. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.

Certain of the securities in the portfolio are issued by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Companies involved in the real estate industry are subject to changes in the real estate market, vacancy rates and competition, volatile interest rates and economic recession.

An investment in a portfolio containing equity securities of foreign issuers is subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.
