Effective February 12, 2021 the investment objective of the fund changed and it now seeks to replicate the performance of an index of U.S. companies that have shown dividend consistency and dividend sustainability, initially the Morningstar® Dividend Leaders IndexSM. The First Trust ETF provides exposure to its new index by investing all or substantially all of its assets in an underlying U.S. index fund known as First Trust Morningstar Dividend Leaders Index Fund, which is managed by the First Trust ETF's portfolio advisor. If this change had been effective throughout the performance measurement period the performance of the fund should have more closely replicated performance of the index.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investing in the funds. Please read the prospectus before investing.

The funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
