ARK's investment philosophy
ARK believes that innovation is key to growth. ARK seeks to capture long-term outperformance and capital appreciation created by disruptive innovation. Disruptive innovation is the introduction of a technologically enabled product or service that changes an industry landscape by creating simplicity and accessibility, while driving down costs. ARK believes disruptive innovation is key to long-term growth of company revenues and profits. ARK invests in equity securities of companies that are relevant to the investment theme of disruptive innovation.
Rooted in over 40 years of experience, ARK aim to identify large-scale investment opportunities resulting from technological innovations such as robotics, big data, machine learning, blockchain technology, cloud computing, energy storage, and DNA sequencing.
ARK's investment approach
ARK focuses solely on investing in disruptive innovation. Despite its potential, ARK believes the full magnitude of disruptive innovation and the investment opportunities it creates are often unrecognised or misunderstood by traditional investors. ARK researches across sectors, industries, and markets to gain a deeper understanding of the convergence and market potential of disruptive innovations. ARK believes that its consistent investment process and active management of high-conviction portfolios capitalises on rapid change and avoids industries and companies likely to be displaced by innovation.
How we invest your money
Disruptive innovation is caused by the introduction of new technologically enabled products or services that permanently change an industry or economic sector by providing greater simplicity, accuracy, customisation and accessibility while driving down costs.
The ARK Global Disruptive Innovation Fund provides exposure to global shares that are relevant to the investment theme of disruptive innovation through the Underlying Fund. The Fund provides access to a global share portfolio that offers thematic exposure to disruptive innovation across a number of sectors, economies, geographies and companies. This includes access to early-stage and emerging companies through listed global share markets, which offer high growth potential without the high costs and illiquidity typically associated with similar investments accessed via venture capital funds.
Both the Fund's and Underlying Fund's investment strategy does not permit derivatives to be used for speculative or gearing purposes.
