First Trust Dow Jones Select Microcap Index Fund

FDM

Summary

The fund seeks to replicate the total return performance of the benchmark index, before fees and expenses, by investing in micro-size companies in the United States.

The fund employs an indexing investment approach that is designed to replicate the performance of the Index.

The investment process starts with a list of companies in the benchmark index and the research team utilizes quantitative techniques and fundamental analysis to identify investment opportunities.

Next, the research team invests significantly in the common stocks that comprise the Index.

The Index is designed to measure the performance of micro-cap stocks issued by U.S. companies that are comparatively liquid and have superior fundamentals.

The fund will be concentrated in an industry or a group of industries to the extent that the Index is so concentrated.
