Exposure to Innovation: Aims to achieve thematic multi-capitalization exposure to innovation across sectors. ARK believes the securities held in EARK present the best risk-reward opportunities from ARK’s innovation-based themes.

Growth Potential: Aims to capture long-term growth with low correlation of relative returns to traditional growth strategies and negative correlation to value strategies.

Tool for Diversification: Active stock selection results in little overlap with traditional indices. EAGB can be a complement to traditional value/growth strategies.
