The First Trust High Yield Long/Short ETF is an actively managed exchange-traded fund. The Fund's primary investment objective is to provide current income. The Fund's secondary investment objective is to provide capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowing for investment purposes) in high yield debt securities that are rated below investment grade at the time of purchase or unrated securities deemed by the Fund's advisor to be of comparable quality.

Past performance is no assurance of future results. Principal Risk Factors: A Fund's shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in a Fund. The risks of investing in the Fund are spelled out in its prospectus, shareholder report, and other regulatory filings.

Investors buying or selling Fund shares on the secondary market may incur brokerage commissions. Investors who sell Fund shares may receive less than the share's net asset value. Unlike shares of open-end mutual funds, investors are generally not able to purchase Fund shares directly from the Fund and individual shares are not redeemable. However, specified large blocks of shares called "creation units" can be purchased from, or redeemed to, the Fund.
