Top 10 Holdings
What is DEED?
The First Trust TCW Securitized Plus ETF seeks to maximize long-term total return. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in securitized debt securities, including asset-backed securities, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities and collateralized loan obligations ("CLOs"). The Funds investment sub-advisor, TCW Investment Management Company LLC ("TCW" or the "Sub-Advisor") seeks to outperform the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Mortgage-Backed Securities Index over a full market cycle through the utilization of independent, bottom-up research to identify securities that are undervalued and that offer a superior risk/reward profile. Under normal conditions, the Funds average portfolio duration varies within two years (plus or minus) of the portfolio duration of the securities comprising the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Mortgage-Backed Securities Index. As a separate measure, there is no limit on the weighted average maturity of the Funds portfolio. While maturity refers to the expected life of a security, duration is a measure of the expected price volatility of a debt security as a result of changes in market rates of interest.
