Top 10 Holdings
What is FPXE?
The First Trust IPOX Europe Equity Opportunities ETF (the "Fund") seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Funds fees and expenses) of an equity index called the IPOX 100 Europe Index (the "Index"). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in common stocks and/or depositary receipts that comprise the Index. The Fund, using an indexing investment approach, attempts to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Index. The Funds investment advisor seeks a correlation of 0.95 or better (before fees and expenses) between the Funds performance and the performance of the Index; a figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation. The Index is owned, developed, maintained and sponsored by IPOX Schuster LLC (the "Index Provider"). The IPOX 100 Europe Index is a market cap weighted index that measures the performance of recent European initial public offerings (IPOs) from the IPOX Global Composite Index.
