FIW Fund Description

The First Trust Water ETF tracks an index of the 36 largest US-listed water companies, weighted equally within five tiers.

FIW Factset Analytics Insight

FIW holds 36 of the largest US-listed water companies, ranked by market cap and weighted equally within five tiers. Restricting the fund's selection universe to US-listed securities makes it a poor fit to our global benchmark. In addition, its tiered equal-weighting scheme boosts the weight of small- and micro-cap companies. That said, investors might like the fact that its tier-weighting scheme reduces concentration. Overall, the fund doesn't look much like our benchmark, but could appeal to those with a US mandate. FIW doesn't trade with a lot of volume, but spreads are typically manageable for smaller investors. Large investors should be aware that price impact is a concern for creates and redeems, although creation costs are low. Its reasonable fee is undercut by wobbly tracking, and investors may realize higher holding costs here.
FIW changed its name from First Trust ISE Water Index Fund to First Trust Water ETF on 12/14/2016. There is no impact to FIW's investment strategy.
