Chief Investment Officer
Cathie founded ARK for two reasons: First, to focus solely on disruptive innovation, primarily in the public equity markets. Second, to open up research, becoming a ‘sharing economy’ company in the asset management space.
“We’re all about finding the next big thing. Those hewing to the benchmarks, which are backwards looking, are not about the future. They are about what has worked. We’re all about what is going to work.”
