With the ARK Venture Fund, we aim to provide all investors, accredited and non-accredited, access to a traditionally exclusive, private asset class.

Thesis

After years of investing in innovation and public equity markets, ARK is excited to apply its differentiated research and lens on disruptive technology to the private markets.

Access For All Retail Investors

ARK aims to provide all investors, accredited and non-accredited, access to a traditionally exclusive, private asset class.

Cost Effective Alternative

ARK believes the 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).

Liquidity For An Illiquid Asset Class

Unlike traditional VC funds where capital is locked up for years, ARK aims to offer more cost-effective liquidity to venture capital by offering an evergreen public-private crossover fund that allows for quarterly redemptions.
