First Trust S&P REIT Index Fund (FRI)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust S&P REIT Index Fund is an exchange-traded fund. This exchange-traded 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 S&P United States REIT Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The S&P United States REIT Index measures the investable U.S. real estate investment trust market and maintains a constituency that reflects the market's overall composition.
  • All securities added to the S&P United States REIT Index must meet certain liquidity and market capitalization requirements.
  • The Standard & Poor's Index Committee, a team of Standard & Poor's economists and index analysts, maintains the S&P United States REIT Index. Maintenance includes implementation of daily corporate actions, quarterly updates of significant events, and annual portfolio reconstitution each September. Share adjustments that exceed 5% are made at the time of the change. Share adjustments of less than 5% are made on a quarterly basis.
