ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) - Request

Hi.

I’m requesting the ARK Innovation ETF*, ticker symbol $ARKK, run by Portfolio Manager Catherine Wood.

The fund has seen staggering returns, even amidst economic collapse, with 3-year annualised returns of 24.72%**.

It is known for its large holding in $TSLA, a company that the fund is extremely vocal about.

I’m quite surprised it isn’t already available on 212 due to the size of the fund. Please add this to the platform, I think it’d be a great addition.

Thanks.

**Return on NAV. Publicly-traded asset annualised 3-year return of 24.45%.

EDIT:
Thanks Ashige, didn’t realise.

We need an “ARK” bot. It’s fast becoming our most needed feature.

Have you checked which of these constituents are available, and as fractional shares? I think many of them could not be put in a pie. Zscaler, Autodesk… not available

1 Like

I’ll let someone else check :sweat_smile:, but failing that just buy these 8 out of 37 which are over half in weight.

TSLA, NVTA, SQ, CRSP, ROKU, TWOU, ILMN, Z

11.28+9.33+8.22+5.89+5.4+4.57+3.86+3.56

Just a solution as we aren’t going to see the ETF here.

ILMN cannot yet be put in a pie.

Well they need to be fractional to be in a pie, I’m saying buy shares in those specific would be my plan if I wanted to copy but I haven’t checked them out I’m not that invested. From a two second scan down the list they look decent, I’ve heard of maybe 15. Half of them might not even be on the platform, I doubt many are fractional, I haven’t checked. It’s simply the list if anyone is interested. You might be in luck and find 30/37 here or only 10 I don’t know :upside_down_face:

If you find any that aren’t on here or want as fractional you can always make a request for those and then :crossed_fingers: it gets filled.

That’s unfortunately the best outcome as @Ashige has already mentioned.

Thanks. Exactly the idea I had.

Arguably better than owning the fund itself, get to choose allocations and companies and don’t pay a 0.75% expense ratio.

Exactly that, I don’t know how frequently they update the list or weightings but I would say it’s going to be better using it as guidance that paying them to follow them.

I would have expected Slack, Pinterest, Spotify and Autodesk would have more weighting and for me personally I know them in my life. Lending Tree I’ve heard of too. The others I would have to do a lot more DD on before including.

All pretty solid atm and that’s 52.11% of the ETF

Yeah, the fund is actively managed so they would be trimming positions everyday as the stock price fluctuates and the allocation increases/decreases. That’s not something I’m concerned about however.

Would definitely tweak to my preferences too. Would be bulking up on $TSLA!

If this is helpful to anyone, I’m keeping a spreadsheet updated regularly of a few of the ARK funds I’m interested in, weighted proportionally to what’s available on 212 pies. More than happy to share:

This is interesting work. Have you actually bought any of these pies yourself? It would be interesting if you could report back to us on performance of these pies (which cover a subset of the contents of the ARK funds) compared to the actual ARK funds.

I have done my own experiment with a “IITU inspired” pie. I matched the contents of this iShares IITU ETF. However, I omitted the two largest holdings of APPL and MSFT, as I already own plenty of those. Interestingly, my pie is underperforming IITU - which tells me that IITU’s performance is mainly driven by APPL and MSFT. Only the AMD part of the pie is doing better.

I have indeed, I set them up a few weeks ago and have been putting small amounts in regularly. Currently my pots are:

ARKF: +7.54%
ARKK: +17.44%
ARKG: +13.78%
ARKW: +12.04%

Autoinvest projections based on the last 5 years:

ARKF: +58.57%
ARKK: +37.59%
ARKG: +29.96%
ARKW: +49.92%

I’ll keep an eye on these over time and how they track the main ARK ETFs, I’m hoping that Trading212 is able to add more of these stocks relatively quickly to get a good cross section. There’s definitely more stocks in their Next Gen Internet fund compared to Genomics so I suspect some will take longer than others.

How are you’re pies doing? Thinking of doing this myself.
And do you update the spreadsheets on a regular basis? Then i know if I should check it haha.

Okay last question, how do you check what holdings Ark changes?

They’re doing well, up between 1 and 10% at the moment with ARKK, ARKF and ARKW performing best. I’m updating the spreadsheet every friday with new stocks/fractionals added by 212 and then every Monday or Tuesday with the latest data from ARK. They have a CSV on their website of all their holdings that you can download, they also send out a daily email with all their trading activity.

Forgot to mention I hacked at this over the weekend and automated it so you can see a live view of the stocks in each ark fund versus where they are tradeable… not made it public yet as it’s super server intensive! Looks something like this… and is generated every time you call it…so it captures all changes made in each portfolio… Shows whether it’s (F)ractional or (W)hole share trading too
