GENERAL RISK FACTORS


You should be aware that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Please note that the price of units or shares and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Income receivable may vary from the amount of income projected at the time of making the investment.

If you exercise any right to redeem, you may not get back the amount initially invested if the unit or share price has fallen since you invested. Deductions for charges and expenses, particularly the initial charge (if any), are not made uniformly throughout the life of the investment, so if you redeem out of the investment during the early years, you may not get back the amount invested.


There can be no guarantee that the tax position or proposed tax position prevailing at the time of an investment will not change. Dividends and capital gains on securities issued in the relevant funds may be subject to withholding taxes imposed by the countries in which each particular fund invests.


The offering documents for the investment funds contain important information summarizing the relevant risk factors pertaining to the investment or relevant funds. Please note, however, that no summary of risk factors is exhaustive, and there may be other risks that could affect your investment. For your own benefit and protection you should read the most recent offering documents (including any relevant supplements) carefully before investing. If you do not understand any point please ask for further information.

Investing in innovation from early stage through mega cap

The ARK Venture Fund seeks to democratize venture capital, offering all investors access to what we believe are the most innovative companies throughout their private and public market lifecycles.

FAQs

As of March 31, 2023, the ARK Venture Fund will have reduced expenses thanks to its Expense Limitation Agreement with ARK Investment Management LLC, the Fund’s investment adviser (the “Adviser”). This means that the fund’s management fee and operating expenses may be waived or reimbursed by the Adviser if they exceed 2.90%, which will result in lower expenses for the Fund. Additionally, the Adviser has agreed to voluntarily reimburse the Fund money to ensure that all existing investors will also benefit from reduced Fund expenses. Finally, the Fund’s Distribution and Service Plan has been amended to reduce the compensation paid to the Distributor.

We anticipate early-stage opportunities to represent 0-25% of the fund while late-stage private opportunities represent 50-80%.

Unlike traditional venture capital funds, our fund is open to investors regardless of accreditation or qualification. In addition, the Fund offers 5% liquidity on a quarterly basis, so investors are not locked up for longer periods like in traditional venture capital funds.

We believe our differentiated value proposition combined with our network of co-investors, public companies, founders, and academics provides access to the most promising private technology companies.

We believe our single 2.75% management fee is more cost-effective than traditional venture capital funds under the ”2 and 20” model (2% management fee, 20% carried interest).

We actively source deals from our network of co-investors, public companies, founders, and academics. Additionally, our Analysts identify potential investment targets.

Companies go through a rigorous due diligence process, including discussions with the company, reference calls, financial modelling and are being scored on ARK’s proprietary five scores, people management and culture, product leadership, barriers of entry, ability to execute and thesis risk.

Investors can request redemptions on a quarterly basis. Up to 5% of the Fund’s outstanding Shares can be redeemed every quarter.

The ARK Venture Fund is not currently available to international investors on the Titan platform. The fund continues to investigate platforms that can accommodate international investors. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

The ARK Venture Fund has the ability to hold public companies, and therefore can hold companies after initial public offering (IPO).
