What is FIW?
The First Trust Water ETF is an exchange-traded fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE Clean Edge Water Index. The ISE Clean Edge Water Index is a modified market capitalization-weighted index comprised of exchange-listed companies that derive a substantial portion of their revenues from the potable and wastewater industry. The Index begins by establishing the total population of stocks in the potable and wastewater industry and eliminates stocks which do not meet the Indexs baseline eligibility requirements. To meet Index eligibility, a stock must satisfy market capitalization, liquidity and weighting concentration requirements. The Index selects the top 36 stocks in the industry by market capitalization.
