First Trust Portfolios Canada Announces Cap, Buffer and Dates of February Buffer ETF

TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FT Portfolios Canada Co. (“First Trust Canada”), a privately owned company, announced today that the cap, buffer and dates for the next Target Outcome Period for the First Trust Cboe Vest U.S. Equity Buffer ETF – February (TSX: FEBB.F) (the “fund” or “February Buffer ETF”) are as follows:
The initial Target Outcome Period for FEBB.F concluded on February 19, 2021 and the upside cap for the new Target Outcome Period has been reset to prevailing market conditions.The fund seeks an outcome that provides investors with returns (before fees, expenses and taxes) that match the price return of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (“SPY” or “underlying ETF”), up to a predetermined upside cap, while providing a buffer against potential SPY losses. The fund is managed and sub-advised by Cboe Vest Financial LLC (“Cboe Vest”) using a “target outcome strategy” or pre-determined target investment outcome.If an investor purchases hedged units after the first day of the Target Outcome Period, they will likely have a different return potential than an investor who purchased hedged units at the start of the Target Outcome Period and the buffer the fund seeks may not be available.First Trust Canada believes a buffer against a level of losses can help investors stay invested during volatile times. The fund offers a way to gain access to outcome-based investing—specifically to buffer against a level of downside risk while allowing growth to a maximum cap—eliminating bank credit risk, in a convenient, flexible investment vehicle.Karan Sood and Howard Rubin, of Cboe Vest, serve as a portfolio managers for the fund. The portfolio managers are jointly and primarily responsible for the day-to-day management of the fund.For further information: Media Contact: Karl Cheong FT Portfolios Canada Co., 40 King Street West, Suite 5102, Email: [email protected], 1-877-622-5552.About First Trust
