Energy Select Portfolio, Series 79

Energy is the vital force powering business, manufacturing, and the transportation of goods and services to serve the world’s economies. Energy supply and demand plays an increasingly vital role in worldwide economic output. The challenge of developing clean fuel initiatives to make the most of traditional fossil fuels and investing in cutting edge research to identify new energy sources, like hydrogen fuels and fusion technologies, becomes increasingly important.

Consider The Following

  • As of February 26, 2021, the energy sector is still down 51.13% from it’s all time high which could represent an opportunity for long-term investing.1

  • According to the Energy Information Administration, the global consumption of petroleum and liquid fuels is projected to average 97.5 million barrels per day for 2021, up by 5.3 million barrels per day from 2020. They anticipate an increase of 3.8 million barrels per day to average 101.3 billion barrels per day in 2022.

  • The shale industry’s rapid growth over the last decade put the American oil industry ahead of the rest of the world, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia.2

You should consider the portfolio's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing. Contact your financial professional or call First Trust Portfolios, L.P. at the number listed below to request a prospectus, which contains this and other information about the portfolio.

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 an investment that is concentrated in stocks in the energy sector involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies engaged in the energy sector are subject to certain risks, including price and supply fluctuations caused by international politics, energy conservation, taxes, price controls, and other regulatory policies of various governments. Falling oil and gas prices may negatively impact the profitability and business prospects of certain energy companies.

An investment in foreign equities should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved with foreign issuers, such as currency fluctuations, political risk, 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.

Large capitalization companies may grow at a slower rate than the overall market.

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.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has resulted in major disruptions to economies and markets around the world. Financial markets have experienced extreme volatility and severe losses, negatively impacting global economic growth prospects. The duration of the COVID-19 outbreak and its effects cannot be determined with certainty and may exacerbate other political, social and economic risks.

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.
