If Noah was a fund manager and animals could invest, he’d put them on these ARK ETFs for stellar returns–ARK Genomic Revolution Multi-Sector ETF (NYSEArca: ARKG), ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEArca: ARKK) and ARK Web x.0 ETF (NYSEArca: ARKW)–a trio of actively-managed funds from ARK Investment Management.
ARKG actively invests in multiple sectors domestically and internationally, including healthcare, information technology, materials, energy and consumer discretionary–all consistent with the investment theme surrounding the genomics revolution–a scientific discipline that focuses on genetics, particularly with regard to studies in DNA. Per Yahoo! Finance performance data, ARKG is up 18.66 percent year-to-date, 30.84 percent the last year and 8.29 percent the past three years.
ARKK’s focus is primarily on domestic and foreign equity securities of companies that coincide with the ETF’s investment theme of disruptive innovation–a technology or strategy that disrupts the status quo and develops its own niche market. ARKK invests in both developed and emerging markets with the intent to use American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)–securities offered in the U.S., but are offered as a specified number of shares in a foreign corporation. Per Yahoo! Finance performance data, ARKK is up 21.31 percent year-to-date, 57.39 percent the last year and 29.70 percent the past three years.
