FPEI Fund Description

The First Trust Institutional Preferred Securities and Income ETF is actively managed that seeks to provide current income and total return by investing in institutional preferred and income-producing debt securities.

FPEI Factset Analytics Insight

FPEI’s growth strategy is driven by the individual stock selection of Merlin Asset Management. Using a multivariate approach, Merlin screens companies based on a number of fundamental equity characteristics, including historical and expected rates of earnings growth. Companies with potential above average expected growth in earnings over a three-five year outlook are then considered further. Merlin looks to identify stocks that have above average return on equity, sustainable earnings growth outpacing that of the broader market, and trade at an attractive price to expected earnings growth. The expense ratio seems high but investors are paying for the expertise of stock selection.
