First Trust S&P International Dividend Aristocrats ETF (FID)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust S&P International Dividend Aristocrats ETF (the "Fund"), formerly the International Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index Fund, seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an index called the S&P International Dividend Aristocrats Index (the "Index"). Under normal conditions, the Fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in the equity securities that comprise the Index. The Fund, using an indexing investment approach, attempts to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Index. The Fund's investment advisor seeks a correlation of 0.95 or better (before fees and expenses) between the Fund's performance and the performance of the Index; a figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
Index Description According to the Index Provider
  • The index begins with the S&P Global Broad Market Index and eliminates those companies that do not have an average daily traded value of at least $5 million for the 3-months prior to the rebalancing reference date.
  • Every security must have a float-adjusted market capitalization of at least $1 billion and must meet stringent eligibility criteria.
    • Historical dividend increases, dividend yield and payout ratio are examined.
  • The 100 eligible securities with the highest indicated dividend yield are considered, subject to a maximum of 20 securities from any one country and a maximum of 35 securities from any one Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sector.
    • U.S. stocks are excluded from inclusion and approximately 80 - 100 eligible securities are selected.
  • Index constituents are weighted by indicated annual dividend yield. At each rebalancing, the weight for each index constituent is capped at 3%, and the weight of each country and GICS sector is capped at 25%, respectively.
  • The index is rebalanced annually.
