Invest with Impact: The ARK Transparency ETF

January 12, 2022 | The Switch

ARK Invest,

This season of “The Switch” is focused on how transparency can impact an organization’s success. In our second and final episode this season, ARK Invest Client Portfolio Manager, Thomas-Hartmann Boyce, is joined by ETF Trends CEO, Tom Lydon, to discuss The ARK Transparency ETF (CTRU). The ARK Transparency ETF seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the Transparency IndexTM (TRANSPCY), which is designed to track the stock price movements of the 100 most transparent companies in the world. Listen in as Thomas and Tom weigh in on the benefits of transparency and why we believe it’s at the core ethos of ARK.

‘The Switch’

The Switch, a weekly video series created by ARK Invest, aims to correct misinformation and help investors understand ETFs and investing in innovation. Each season, we’re joined by ETF Trends and ETF Database to help us break down a specific topic so that you and your portfolio can stay on the right side of technological change.

We hope every episode delivers that “light-bulb moment” of realization and clarity, ultimately flipping The Switch!
