Episode one breaks down why now is the time for disruptive innovation. Today, we believe the global economy is undergoing the largest technological transformation in history thanks to five innovation platforms evolving at the same time.
In episode two of The Switch, we discuss how to identify transformative technologies and what distinguishes true innovation from a passing fad.
In episode three, we discuss how to assess the impact of disruptive technologies. Firms often box innovation into sectors, geographies, or market capitalization. At ARK, we take a different approach.
In our final episode this season, Cathie, Tom, and Dave discuss deflation. While inflation remains a grave concern for investors, ARK believes greater risk lies with deflation. Cathie also weighs in on the difference between “good” and “bad” deflation, inventory build-ups, and the power of convergence.
To kick off our sophomore season, Ren, Tom, and Dave discuss the advantages of ETF structure – such as tax efficiency, transparency, and liquidity – and how it compares to other vehicles. They also weigh in on active vs. passive investing and what it means for the future of portfolio management.
In episode two, we take a deep dive into the creation and redemption process, what it means for liquidity, and the advantages of active vs. passive investing.
Episode three focuses on the market’s capacity to absorb innovation-centric investments, the pipeline from private to IPOs and SPACs, and why we believe innovation is a strategic asset class.
Our final episode this season focuses on best practices for trading ETFs. Tune in to learn about limit orders, on-screen vs. underlying liquidity, and how both large and small investors can optimize their trading activity.
On this season of 'The Switch', ARK Client Portfolio Manager, Ren Leggi, is joined by ETF Trends CEO, Tom Lydon, and CIO, Dave Nadig, to discuss four market inefficiencies. First up: the market’s short-term time horizon.
Episode two focuses on passive public markets, an area that has surged over the last decade, despite being built on past success, when the idea should be to look forward.
Episode three focuses on the siloization of Wall Street – the splitting of personnel, data, and more, into isolated units with poor communication.
Episode four focuses on the closed-off research and investment mentality – specifically the skilled people hired, who can share insight instead of withholding it.
ARK believes innovation is key to growth. We seek to offer Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that allow you to invest in the future today.
