First Trust Launches the First Trust California Municipal High Income ETF
Jun 21 17
First Trust Advisors L.P. announced that it has launched a new actively managed ETF, the First Trust California Municipal High Income ETF. The fund seeks to provide income that is exempt from regular federal income taxes and California state income taxes with long-term capital appreciation as a secondary objective. The fund will seek to achieve its investment objectives by investing primarily in municipal debt securities issued by the state of California. The fund may also invest in municipal securities issued by territories or possessions of the U. S. (including, but not limited to, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam.) The fund is managed by the First Trust Municipal Securities Team using a disciplined approach that applies both quantitative analysis and fundamental research to seek higher-yielding undervalued bonds within the municipal market. In choosing the bonds, the portfolio managers seek to take advantage of municipal market inefficiencies through an investment process that practices diligent credit analysis of individual issuers coupled with a thorough understanding of the major opportunities and risks within municipal sectors. They also apply a quantitative total return scenario analysis using multiple interest rate assumptions over different time horizons. Johnathan N. Wilhelm, Senior Vice President and Tom Futrell, CFA, Senior Vice President at First Trust, serve as senior portfolio managers of the fund. The two will share responsibilities for the day-to-day management of the fund’s investment portfolio.
