Fund Description
The First Trust SSI Strategic Convertible Securities ETF is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF) that seeks to deliver total return by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its net assets in a diversified portfolio of U.S. and non-U.S. convertible securities. Convertible securities are an investment solution for investors seeking income and risk-managed capital appreciation potential. A convertible security is a debt instrument issued by corporations, yet has an embedded conversion option that generally enables the security to be exchanged or converted into a predetermined number of shares of common stock. The fund is actively managed, not index-based, offering the flexibility to strategically adjust market and sector exposure.
