FAN Fund Description

The First Trust Global Wind Energy ETF tracks an index of companies involved in the wind energy industry weighted according to float-adjusted market cap with strict limits on individual holdings.

FAN Factset Analytics Insight

FAN is the lone global renewable energy ETF that specifically targets the wind industry. FAN saves roughly 60% of its weighting for 'pure-plays' in the wind industry and allocates the remaining 40% to 'diversified sector' companies involved in the industry. The top five pure-play companies are capped at 8% weight each, with a 4% cap for the remainder. All diversified sector companies have a 2% cap. FAN doesn't look much like our broad renewable energy benchmark, which is expected, since it follows a 'wind energy' mandate. The fund overweights electric utilities, consistent with its mandate, and is also very Europe-centric. FAN's expense ratio is reasonable for the segment. While its onscreen liquidity is decent, average spreads are wider than we'd like.

FAN changed its name from First Trust ISE Global Wind Energy Index Fund to First Trust Global Wind Energy ETF on 12/14/2016. The underlying index methodology changed on 6/20/17, affecting the fund’s weighting and position limits.
