First Trust US Equity Opportunities ETF (FPX)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust US Equity Opportunities ETF (the "Fund"), formerly First Trust US IPO Index Fund, seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the IPOX®-100 U.S. Index. The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in the common stocks that comprise the Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The IPOX®-100 U.S. Index is a modified value-weighted price index measuring the performance of the top 100 companies ranked quarterly by market capitalization in the IPOX® Global Composite Index.
  • The index utilizes a 10% capping on all constituents and includes the 100 largest, typically best performing and most liquid U.S. public offerings ("IPOs") in the IPOX® Global Composite Index.
  • Index constituents are selected based on quantitative initial screens. In general, eligible constituents are added on the sixth day of trading and remain eligible to be included in the Index for approximately four years.
  • The index is reconstituted and adjusted quarterly.
Potential Benefits of the First Trust US Equity Opportunities ETF
  • Systematic exposure to U.S. equity capital and private equity activity and the growth and innovativeness of the U.S. economy via a semi-passive indexing approach.
  • Based on well researched, totally disciplined and transparent index methodology. The IPOX®-100 U.S. Index has historically captured around 85% of total market capitalization created through U.S. IPO activity during the past four years. Tilt towards mid- and large-cap stocks.
  • Investment tool for buy-and-hold investors seeking timely and systematic IPO exposure as well as active market participants due to dynamic index properties.
