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.
An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust should be made
with an understanding of the risks involved with owning common stocks, 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.
You should be aware that the portfolio is concentrated in stocks in the financials sector which involves
additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies engaged in the financials sector are 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 potential increased regulation.
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 foreign securities should be made with
an understanding of the additional risks involved with foreign issuers, such as 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.
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.
As the use of Internet technology has become more prevalent in the course of business, the trust
has become more susceptible to potential operational risks through breaches in cybersecurity.
Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, spread of infectious diseases or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant negative impact on the portfolio and its investments.
Such events may affect certain geographic regions, countries, sectors and industries more significantly than others. The recent outbreak of a respiratory disease designated as COVID-19 was first detected in China in December
2019. The global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is impossible to predict but is expected to disrupt manufacturing, supply chains and sales in affected areas, negatively impact global economic growth prospects,
and could result in a substantial economic downturn or recession.
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.
