First Trust BICK Index Fund (BICK)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust BICK Index Fund is an exchange-traded fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the Fund's fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE BICK™ (Brazil, India, China, South Korea) Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The ISE BICK™ Index is designed to provide a benchmark for investors interested in tracking the largest and most liquid public companies that are domiciled in Brazil, India, Mainland China and South Korea.
  • Each component security must have a market capitalization of at least $100 million.
  • For each country, the securities are ranked in descending order by market capitalization and in descending order by liquidity.
  • The 25 top ranked securities for each country are selected for inclusion in the index. If a country has less than 25 eligible securities, all eligible securities are selected.
  • The index uses an equal weighted allocation methodology so that each country represents 25% of the index at each rebalance. All components within a country allocation are equally-weighted as well at the rebalance date.
  • Index components are reviewed quarterly for eligibility and any changes in component securities of the index are made after the market close on the third Friday of each March, June, September and December.
