First Trust Advisors L.P., the Funds’ investment advisor, along with its affiliate, First Trust Portfolios L.P., are privately-held companies which provide a variety of investment services, including asset management and financial advisory services, with collective assets under management or supervision of approximately $86 billion as of February 28, 2014, through unit investment trusts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, mutual funds and separate managed accounts.

You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a Fund before investing. Prospectuses for the Funds contain this and other important information and are available free of charge by calling toll-free at 1-800-621-1675 or visiting www.ftportfolios.com. A prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

Past performance is no assurance of future results. Principal Risk Factors: A Fund’s shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in a Fund. An investment in a Fund involves risk similar to those of investing in any fund of equity securities traded on exchanges. The risks of investing in each Fund are spelled out in its prospectus, shareholder report, and other regulatory filings.

A Fund that is concentrated in securities of companies in a certain sector or industry involves additional risks, including limited diversification. A Fund which invests in foreign securities may be subject to additional risks not associated with domestic securities. Such risks may be heightened in the case of securities of emerging markets countries. An Index ETF seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield of an index. You should anticipate that the value of an Index Fund’s shares will decline, more or less, in correlation with any decline in the value of the index. An Index Fund’s return may not match the return of the index. Unlike a Fund, the indices do not actually hold a portfolio of securities and therefore do not incur the expenses incurred by a Fund.

An actively managed ETF is subject to management risk because it is an actively managed portfolio. In managing such a Fund’s investment portfolio, the portfolio managers will apply investment techniques and risk analyses that may not have the desired result. There can be no guarantee that a Fund will meet its investment objective. Preferred Securities are subject to credit risk, interest rate risk and income risk. Credit Risk may be heightened if a Fund invests in “high yield” or “junk” debt. The First Trust Senior Loan Fund is subject to credit risk, currency risk, high yield securities risk, interest rate risk, prepayment risk and senior loans risk. The First Trust Tactical High Yield ETF is subject to convertible bonds risk, credit risk, distressed securities risk, high yield securities risk, interest rate risk, loans risk, prepayment risk and short sale risk. The First Trust Preferred Securities and Income ETF is subject to financial company risk, high yield securities risk, income risk, preferred securities risk and REIT risk.

Investors buying or selling Fund shares on the secondary market may incur brokerage commissions. Investors who sell Fund shares may receive less than the share’s net asset value. Unlike shares of open-end mutual funds, investors are generally not able to purchase Fund shares directly from the Fund and individual shares are not redeemable. However, specified large blocks of shares called “creation units” can be purchased from, or redeemed to, the Fund.
