As an evergreen public-private crossover fund, the ARK Venture Fund can hold shares of companies throughout their private and public market lifecycles, from early stage to mega cap.
Holdings subject to change. Not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any specific security.
Investing in innovation from early stage through mega cap
The ARK Venture Fund seeks to democratize venture capital, offering all investors access to what we believe are the most innovative companies throughout their private and public market lifecycles.
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).
