ARW - ARK Next Generation Internet ETF

ARKW is an actively managed fund with a very broad mandate: It’s not limited by geography or by industry. Instead, the fund’s managers are tasked with identifying companies they see as the next generation of Internet evolution. Broadly speaking, the ARKW’s managers appear focused on big buzzwords such as &ldquo,Internet of things,&rdquo, &ldquo,cloud computing,&rdquo, &ldquo,digital currencies&rdquo, and &ldquo,wearable technology.&rdquo, While the fund’s focus may be appealing for investors with conviction in these new technologies, portfolio implementation is a more difficult task: Most of the companies developing these advancements are huge corporations for which nascent technologies are only a small fraction of total revenues. As such, it’s very difficult to get pure-play access to ARKW’s targeted technologies—so be sure to confirm that the fund’s holdings—not just its thesis—align with your view of the space.
