A rapid increase in technologically-enabled innovation is changing the world at an accelerated rate and Australians cannot be left out of this exciting field of investment.

To enable Australians to access investment sectors not readily available locally, OneVue has forged an exclusive partnership with New York City-based investment manager, ARK Investment Management LLC (ARK).  Ark was founded in 2014 by Catherine D. Wood following her 12-year tenure as Chief Investment Officer of Global Thematic Strategies at AllianceBernstein, where she managed over $5 billion in assets.

The new OneVue partnership enables Australian investors and advisers to access global equity portfolios focused solely on disruptive innovations with high growth potential.

Brett Marsh, Head of Product, said: “We wanted to offer something that genuinely gives domestic investors access to innovations and sectors that are making a difference across generations.”

ARK is a leading investment manager offering global thematic strategies that capitalise on investment opportunities created by disruptive innovation. ARK believes innovation is key to the long-term growth of company earnings, revenues and profits. By identifying and investing in public companies that are the leaders, enablers and beneficiaries of disruptive innovation, ARK’s strategies aim to deliver superior long-term capital appreciation and outperformance with low correlations to traditional investment strategies. ARK’s investment offerings currently include Industrial Innovation, Next Generation Internet, The Genomic Revolution, 3D Printing, Israel Innovative Technology, and an overall Disruptive Innovation Strategy.

“Innovation is changing the way we live and should be reflected in how we invest,” said Catherine D. Wood. “An acceleration in the pace of innovation makes it more challenging for traditional analysts to accurately assess industries and companies, and for benchmarks to adjust. Our strategy is to find and invest in the companies that are poised to transform economic sectors and the global economy.”

ARK has a unique research ecosystem that leverages multiple data sources. This ecosystem utilises ‘Theme Developers’ who challenge, validate and provide knowledgeable insights for ARK’s theme-based research.  Theme Developers are thought leaders and experts who specialise in a research theme.

ARK’s portfolios are the latest international equity SMAs to be added to OneVue’s platform, which now offers more than 70 SMAs, as well as a large range of fast-growing model portfolios, including blended direct share and managed fund models.
