Investment Strategies

ARK’s thematic investment strategies span market capitalizations, sectors, and geographies to focus on public companies that we expect to be the leaders, enablers, and beneficiaries of disruptive innovation. ARK’s strategies aim to deliver long-term growth with low correlation to traditional investment strategies.

ARK Identifies More Innovation Than Ever Before

In the late nineteenth century, three innovation platforms evolved at the same time and changed the way the world worked. Thanks to the introduction of the telephone, automobile, and electricity, the world’s productivity exploded as costs dropped, unleashing demand across sectors. Today, we believe the global economy is undergoing the largest technological transformation in history thanks to five innovation platforms evolving at the same time.

What does the name “ARK” stand for?

Cathie Wood founded ARK Invest to focus solely on disruptive innovation and to capitalize on the investment opportunities it creates. Over her career, she came to recognize that investing in disruptive innovation demands: 

-ACTIVE management to capitalize on the rapid change innovation creates. 
-An open RESEARCH ecosystem that is freed from sectors, geographies, and market caps to capture the convergence of technology.
-The sharing of KNOWLEDGE to gain a deeper understanding of the areas we are researching and investing in.

So, ARK is an acronym for: Active Research Knowledge.

What sets ARK FINTECH apart?

A research team rooted in over 40 years of experience in identifying and investing solely in disruptive innovations that should change the way the world works and deliver long-term growth as industries transform. Despite its potential, ARK believes the full magnitude of disruptive innovation and the investment opportunities it creates are often unrecognized or misunderstood by traditional investors. ARK FINTECH researches across sectors, industries, and markets to gain a deeper understanding of the convergence and market potential of disruptive innovations.
