ARK’s Active ETFs Seek to Capture Disruptive Innovation

ACTIVE – ARK believes truly active management can capture long-term investment opportunities resulting from innovation that cuts across sectors.

INNOVATION – Not constrained by sector, geography or market cap, ARK identifies companies often missed by traditional sector-based strategies.

“Disruptive innovation is not priced correctly by traditional investment strategies because people don’t understand how big the ultimate opportunities are going to be. They aren’t sizing the opportunity and they aren’t analyzing the disruption.”

– Catherine D. Wood | Forbes Advisor Playbook iConference, September 17, 2015

1
Innovations often have long flat adoption curves as inertia, network effects, and lack of understanding delay their embrace. During this phase, short-term price movements often reflect volatility more than a stock’s underlying value. ARK seeks to identify the true market potential of innovative companies.
2
Performance declines during the gap between the early adopters and mass market acceptance. The market tends to overestimate impacts of short-term events and to underestimate long-term market performance. ARK works to recognize firms that will “cross the chasm” to large rapid growth.
3
Many truly innovative products and services are platforms in “winner takes most” markets. ARK looks for platforms of innovation that cut across sectors for maximum potential upside.
4
As companies realize the commercial successes of their innovations, they must continue to evolve and differentiate. ARK monitors if a company is reinvesting in future opportunities and identifies possible disrupters.

According to NYU and The Economist, the majority of innovative products have a “saddled” adoption curve, where the early market comprises only 10-20% of the total eventual adopters. Performance often levels off or even dips following early enthusiasm. Despite a company’s potential, innovations can take longer for the mass market to fully embrace. This phenomenon famously caused Steve Wozniak to doubt the future of the PC in 1985.

ARK Active ETFs aim for uncorrelated long-term performance.
