FPE Fund Description

FPE is an actively managed fund that attempts to generate income by investing globally in preferred equities and income producing debt across the market cap spectrum.

FPE Factset Analytics Insight

FPE focuses on preferred stocks—securities that straddle the awkward line between fixed income and equities. As an actively managed fund, its tilts are dynamic and often heavily concentrated in one sector or another. The fund carries a fair amount of interest rate risk thanks to a very long average duration. Over half the portfolio is rated below investment grade (or not rated) per First Trust. Retail traders will find plenty of liquidity and small spreads with FPE, but its basket of preferred stock will pose obstacles to investors looking for good block execution. FPE charges a typical fee for a preferred-stock ETF, and covers the fund's active management.

FPE MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

First Trust Preferred Securities & Income ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 5.30 out of 10.

These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
