First Trust Multi Cap Gr AlphaDEX ETF (FAD) Exchange-traded Fund (ETF)

The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Defined Multi Cap Growth Index. The fund normally invests at least 90% of net assets in common stocks that comprise the index. The index is a modified equal-dollar weighted index designed by S&P to objectively identify and select stocks from the S&P Composite 1500 Growth Index that may generate positive alpha relative to traditional passive-style indices through the use of the AlphaDEX(R) screening methodology. The fund is non-diversified.
