How to trade ARK ETFs


Cathie Wood is something of a pioneer in the world of investing and finance: not only is she one of the few female leaders in this sector, but she’s also breaking ground in some of the investments she is making. Wood is a hugely influential presence in the exchange traded fund (ETF) arena as ARK is all about disruptive technology and focuses on a range of themes.


Wood’s ETFs are also performing well. The Genomic ETF (ARKG) is up over 214% in the last year (as of Feb 18th, 2021). ARKK – the Innovation ETF – is up 170% in 12 months.
