By BudgetHolics | Budgetholics | 5 Apr 2021

Cathie Wood is the manager of ARK Invest, an Asset Management Company. Founded in 2014, ARK Invest focuses on companies that can bring about “Disruptive Innovation”. According to their Big Ideas 2021, “ARK aims to identify large-scale investment opportunities
by focusing on who we believe to be the leaders, enablers, and beneficiaries of disruptive
innovation. While we believe innovation is the key to growth, the opportunities it creates can
be missed or misunderstood by traditional investment managers who are more focused on
sectors, indexes, short-term earnings, and price movements.

ARK seeks to gain a deeper understanding of the convergence, market potential, and long-term impact of disruptive innovation by researching a global universe that spans sectors,
industries, and markets. Today, we are witnessing an acceleration in new technological breakthroughs.” When it comes to investing, ARK has a strict rule of only picking up companies that will grow by at least 15%. Their suggested time frame for holding an ARK ETF is a minimum of 7 years.

ARK Invest has 5 Actively Managed ETFs, ARK Innovation, Autonomous Tech & Robots, Next Generation Internet, Genomics Revolution and Fintech Innovation. On this video we will focus on the general portfolio, ARK Innovation (Ticker Symbol: ARKK). It consists of 56 companies, of which we’ll review the top 10, making up 47.64% of the total portfolio.

ARK Invest uploads their trades daily on their website, so everyone can have a neigh-real time look at their moves. This is especially useful for those of us who reside outside the US, and access to such ETFs is much harder. Having access to the daily trades allows investors to copy ARK’s portfolios without needing to purchase the actual ETF.

Today’s list comprises enterprises that are developing the following Big Ideas Technologies: Deep Learning, Data Centres, Digital Wallets, Bitcoin, EVs, Automation, Autonomous Ride-Hailing, Cell and Gene Therapy.
