  • Background:
    "Disruptive innovation" is the name of the investing game at ARK Investments, actively-managed exchange traded funds are the investing vehicle of choice, and transparency is the modus operandi.

    After a PM career at Jennison Associates (now part of Prudential Investments), hedge fund shop Tupelo Capital Management (which she co-founded) and AllianceBernstein (where she served as CIO for thematic portfolios), Cathie Wood launched ARK in 2014. The new mutual fund shop debuted its first two ETFs, each around a different theme, in September 2014.

    Wood and her team embrace the tax efficiency and transparency of the ETF structure, making their investing process public and involving academics as "theme developers."

    A subadvised, multi-manager fund firm, American Beacon, bought a minority stake in Ark in 2016, with an option to increase its stake down the line. In 2020, Ark and Wood did a deal to extinguish American Beacon's option, keeping Wood as the majority shareholder of Ark. American Beacon's parent, Resolute Investment Managers, remains a minority shareholder in Ark and a key Ark ally (mainly in distribution.)
