Strategy Description

This actively managed equity strategy seeks long-term capital growth by investing in companies that ARK believes are early stage disruptors. “Disruptors” are leading innovative companies that stimulate substantial growth or create new markets while also disrupting existing sectors. An innovative company is one that introduces a technologically enabled new product or service that ARK believes may change an industry by creating simplicity and accessibility, while possibly driving down costs. An early stage disruptor is either: 1) a newer public company that ARK believes is has the potential for future long-term growth, or 2) a company that has introduced a technologically enabled product or service that is in the early stages of development and has the potential for future long-term growth.
