Silicon Valley Opportunity, Series 2

Silicon Valley is a region in the San Francisco Bay area of Northern California and a global hub for technology, venture capital and change as well as home to many of the world’s largest technology companies. The term Silicon Valley originally referred to the region’s large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers but has evolved into describing an area synonymous with innovation, scientific development and high-tech research. Today, some of the most famous technology companies make Silicon Valley home.

The Silicon Valley Opportunity Portfolio invests in companies headquartered in, or with significant operations in, Silicon Valley.

Consider The Following Factors

  • Technological innovation is not only driving tech firms, but is becoming a more important component of healthcare, security, business services and finance.
  • From June 2010 through June 2017, job growth in the Silicon Valley increased 26.6%.1
  • Seven of the ten largest U.S. tech firms (by revenue) that are expected to post aggregate sales of more than $1 trillion in 2018 make Silicon Valley their home.2

You should consider the portfolio's investment objectives, 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 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 information technology sector which involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies engaged in the information technology sector are subject to fierce competition, high research and development costs, and their products and services may be subject to rapid obsolescence. Technology company stocks, especially those which are Internet related, may experience extreme price and volume fluctuations that are often unrelated to their operating performance.There is no assurance that the projections stated herein will be realized.

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.

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.

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 cyber security.
