First Trust Natural Gas ETF (FCG)
  • 2023 Estimated Capital Gain Distributions
    Please note that none of our First Trust Exchange-Traded Funds are expected to pay a special long-term capital gain distribution in December. Also, none of the First Trust Exchange-Traded Funds are expected to pay any special short-term capital gain distributions in December. Final determination of the source and tax status of all distributions paid in the current year are to be made after year-end and could differ from the expectations noted above.
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Natural Gas ETF 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 fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE-Revere Natural Gas™ Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
Index Description According to the Index Provider
  • The Index is comprised of exchange-listed companies that derive a substantial portion of their revenues from the exploration and production of natural gas.
  • The Index is constructed by establishing the universe of U.S. listed stocks of companies involved in the exploration and production of natural gas. Companies whose natural gas proved reserves do not meet certain requirements are eliminated.
  • To meet Index eligibility, a stock must also satisfy market capitalization, liquidity and weighting concentration requirements.
  • All eligible operating companies and Master Limited Partnership (MLP) stocks are ranked on both liquidity and market capitalization within their segments.
  • Weights within each segment are scaled so that the largest weight is a multiple of the smallest weight.
  • The Index is optimized for liquidity and market capitalization at the component level.
  • The Index is rebalanced on the application of the above model on a quarterly basis.
