What is ARK’s founding story?
ARK is an investment manager focused solely on disruptive innovation. Rooted in over 40 years of experience, we aim to identify large-scale investment opportunities resulting from innovations centered around robotics/automation, energy storage, genomic sequencing, and next generation internet technologies, including deep learning, mobile connected devices, and blockchain technology.
ARK became registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in January 2014. ARK began managing client assets in September 2014, launching two actively managed ETFs (ARKW and ARKQ) on the NYSE Arca, followed by two additional ETFs the next month (ARKG and ARKK). Since then, ARK has added two indexed ETFs (PRNT and IZRL) that are listed on the Cboe Global Markets.
The ARK ETFs have been managed by Chief Investment Officer (“CIO”), Catherine Wood, and supported by ARK’s Director of Research, Brett Winton, since its inception in 2014.
