First Trust Global Engineering and Construction ETF (FLM)
Investment Objective/Strategy - First Trust Global Engineering and Construction 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 the Fund's fees and expenses, of the ISE Global Engineering and Construction Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The index specifically targets companies that are engaged in large civil and capital projects such as infrastructure, utilities, transportation, telecommunications, commercial, residential, and commerce facilities and whose roles are within the engineering, designing, planning, consulting, project managing, and/or constructing of these projects.To be included in the index, a company must receive at least 70% of revenues from these types of services and projects based on the reportable segment/division from its most recent annual report.
  • The companies must meet market capitalization and weighting concentration requirements for inclusion in the index.
  • The index uses a linear-based capitalization-weighted methodology for the group of companies.The resulting linear weight distribution prevents a few large component stocks from dominating the index while allowing smaller companies to adequately influence index performance.
  • Index components are reviewed semi-annually for eligibility, and the weights are re-set according to that distribution.

For funds with certain equity strategies, due to the negative economic impact across many industries caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, certain of the issuers of the securities included in the fund may elect to reduce the amount of dividends and/or distributions paid in the future. As a result, the "12-Month Distribution Rate," which is based on the fund's trailing 12-month ordinary distributions, will likely be higher, and in some cases significantly higher, than the actual 12-month distribution rate achieved by the fund.
