Title Body


Quarterly Dividend

AMZA stands out in the MLP space for its active management and monthly distribution frequency since most other MLP ETFs track indices and pay quarterly distributions. The fund’s active managers, Infrastructure Capital Advisors, intend to hold a concentrated portfolio of 25-50 MLPs, and expect cash distributions to comprise a significant portion of the fund’s total return. In addition, the fund employs leverage, shorting, and options strategies in an effort to enhance income and manage risk. Structured as a C-corporation, AMZA pays corporate taxes on gains, with the upside that its distributions are generally tax-deferred.

Under normal market conditions, the fund will invest not less than 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of MLPs in the energy infrastructure sector. It is non-diversified.

ARKQ - ARK Autonomous Technology&Robotics

ARKQ - Autonomous Technology & Robotics

ARKQ - actively managed fund concentrating on automation and other technological advancements

Competition - ROBO, PRNT, IRBO, ROBT, THNQ

ARKQ, like many ETFs in the global technology segment, doesn't attempt to provide broad exposure to tech companies. Instead, the fund's active mandate is to identify companies that will benefit from new technologies and automation. Specifically, ARKQ's managers appear interested in specific technologies with transformative businesses in automation, energy, and artificial intelligence. Because of its thematic approach, pure-play portfolio implementation is more difficult. The fund uses its own internal research and analysis in selecting companies that capitalize on disruptive innovation that enable development in the markets they operate.



ARW - ARK Next Generation Internet ETF

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.
