Geographic Allocation (%)

Sector Allocation

Investors will always prefer to have their portfolios divercified against different sectors. The broad sector allocation increases the possibility of making a profit or at least avoiding a loss. However, this may also reduce the expected return on First Etf. Generally, it depends on diversification level and type but usually, the broader the sector allocation, the less risk can be expected from holding First Etf, and the less return is expected.
Institutional investors that are interested in enforcing a sector tilt in their portfolio can use exchange-traded funds, such as First Trust TCW Etf, as a low-cost alternative to building a custom portfolio. So, using sector ETFs to diversify your portfolio can be a profitable strategy. However, no matter what sectors are desirable at a given time, no single industry should ever make up more than 20 percent of your stock portfolio.

First Trust TCW Currency Exposure

First Trust TCW holds assets that are exposed to currency risk. As an investor, you have to ensure that the increase in value or dividend from foreign constituents of First Trust will not be offset by an unfavorable exchange rate and will not cancel out the return on assets from different countries. In other words, assess how much of your investment depends on the development of foreign currencies before you invest in First Trust TCW.
