Fund Description
The investment objective of the First Trust TCW Unconstrained Plus Bond ETF (the "Fund") is to seek to maximize long-term total return. Under normal market conditions, the Fund intends to invest at least 80% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in a portfolio of fixed income securities. The Funds investment sub-advisor, TCW Investment Management Company LLC ("TCW" or the "Sub-Advisor"), will manage the Funds portfolio in an "unconstrained" manner, meaning that its investment universe is not limited to the securities of any particular index and it has discretion to invest in fixed income securities of any type or credit quality, including up to 70% in high yield (or "junk") securities, up to 60% in emerging market securities and up to 50% in securities denominated in foreign currencies. Additionally, under normal market conditions, the Funds average portfolio duration will vary from between 0 to 10 years. Duration is a measure of the expected price volatility of a fixed income security as a result of changes in market rates of interest.
