First Trust Alerian US NextGen Infrastructure ETF (RBLD)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Alerian U.S. NextGen Infrastructure ETF (the "Fund"), formerly First Trust Global Engineering and Construction ETF, seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Alerian U.S. NextGen Infrastructure Index (the "Index"). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks and real estate investment trusts ("REITs") that comprise the Index. The Fund, using an indexing investment approach, attempts to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Index. The Index is owned and is developed, maintained and sponsored by VettaFi LLC ("VettaFi" or the "Index Provider"). The Index Provider retains the right at any time, upon prior written notice, to modify the Index methodology.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The index begins with a universe of common stocks and real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) of companies in the S-Network U.S. Equity WR 3000 Index that comprise the U.S. infrastructure industry, as defined by Alerian, the index provider.
  • To be eligible for the index, each security must meet the following criteria:
    • Minimum market capitalization of $500 million;
    • Float adjusted market capitalization value of at least $100 million;
    • Minimum free float factor of 20%;
    • Three-month average daily trading value of at least $5 million.
  • The top 100 stocks are selected based on market capitalization and are weighted equally.
  • The index is rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.
