First Trust Advisors L.P. Plans to Launch the First Trust TCW Opportunistic Fixed Income ETF

First Trust Advisors L.P. announced that it expects to launch a new actively managed exchange-traded fund on February 15, 2017. The First Trust TCW Opportunistic Fixed Income seeks to maximize long-term total return using a value driven approach. The fund is sub-advised and managed by TCW Investment Management Company LLC. The fund is a multi-sector portfolio that provides exposure to core and satellite fixed income assets. Under normal market conditions, the fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in fixed income securities of any credit quality and may invest up to 35% of its net assets in securities rated below investment grade. The investment process comprises additional strategies including careful duration management, yield curve positioning and opportunistic trade execution. The result is a portfolio that is diversified not only in a traditional sense across maturities, sectors and securities, but also across strategies that provide the opportunity to seek higher risk-adjusted returns. TCW’s fixed income management philosophy reflects a goal of consistently outperforming the broader bond market over full market cycles while maintaining below average volatility with an emphasis on capital preservation, particularly in rising interest rate environments.
