Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original cost. The Fund’s most recent month-end performance can be found in the fund material section. Returns for less than one year are not annualized. The net asset value (NAV) per Share for the Fund is computed by dividing the value of the net assets of the Fund (i.e., the value of its total assets less total liabilities) by the total number of Shares outstanding. Expenses and fees, including the Management Fee, are accrued daily and taken into account for purposes of determining NAV. The NAV of the Fund is determined each business day as of the close of trading (ordinarily 4:00 p.m., Eastern time) on the New York Stock Exchange. Any assets or liabilities denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are converted into U.S. dollars at the current market rates on the date of valuation as quoted by one or more sources.

Portfolio holdings and allocations are subject to change and should not be considered investment advice or a recommendation to buy, sell or hold any particular security.

As of March 31, 2023, the ARK Venture Fund will have reduced expenses thanks to its Expense Limitation Agreement with ARK Investment Management LLC, the Fund’s investment adviser (the “Adviser”). This means that the fund’s management fee and operating expenses may be waived or reimbursed by the Adviser if they exceed 2.90%, which will result in lower expenses for the Fund. Additionally, the Adviser has agreed to voluntarily reimburse the Fund money to ensure that all existing investors will also benefit from reduced Fund expenses. Finally, the Fund’s Distribution and Service Plan has been amended to reduce the compensation paid to the Distributor.

We anticipate early-stage opportunities to represent 0-25% of the fund while late-stage private opportunities represent 50-80%.

Unlike traditional venture capital funds, our fund is open to investors regardless of accreditation or qualification. In addition, the Fund offers 5% liquidity on a quarterly basis, so investors are not locked up for longer periods like in traditional venture capital funds.

We believe our differentiated value proposition combined with our network of co-investors, public companies, founders, and academics provides access to the most promising private technology companies.

We believe our single 2.75% management fee is more cost-effective than traditional venture capital funds under the ”2 and 20” model (2% management fee, 20% carried interest).

We actively source deals from our network of co-investors, public companies, founders, and academics. Additionally, our Analysts identify potential investment targets.

Companies go through a rigorous due diligence process, including discussions with the company, reference calls, financial modelling and are being scored on ARK’s proprietary five scores, people management and culture, product leadership, barriers of entry, ability to execute and thesis risk.

Investors can request redemptions on a quarterly basis. Up to 5% of the Fund’s outstanding Shares can be redeemed every quarter.

The ARK Venture Fund will not be available to international investors.

The ARK Venture Fund has the ability to hold public companies, and therefore can hold companies after initial public offering (IPO).
