FTLB Fund Description

The First Trust Low Beta Income ETF seeks to provide current income. The Fund will pursue its objective by investing in equity securities listed on U.S. exchanges of all market capitalizations and by utilizing an option strategy consisting of buying U.S. exchange-traded put options on the SP 500 Index (the Index) and writing (selling) U.S. exchange-traded covered call options on the Index. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests primarily in equity securities listed on U.S. exchanges of all market capitalizations. The Fund will also employ an option strategy in which it will write U.S. exchange-traded covered call options on the Index in order to seek additional cash flow in the form of premiums on the options. A premium is the income received by an investor who sells an option contract to another party. These premiums may be distributed to shareholders on a monthly basis or used to purchase U.S. exchange-traded put options on the Index that seek to provide the Fund with downside protection and which are expected to reduce the Fund's price sensitivity to declining markets. The market value of the option strategy may be up to 20% of the Funds overall net asset value.
