ARK Partners With Fintech Startup Say to Increase Transparency in Shareholder Communication

NEW YORK, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ARK Investment Management LLC (ARK), a New York-based adviser focused solely on investing in disruptive innovation, has partnered with Say, the fintech startup that is reimagining shareholder communications. Inspired by an opportunity to transform a rigid, antiquated process, Say directly connects all shareholders—whether they own a fraction of a share or millions—with companies and fund managers. Say creates a new kind of transparency and offers every investor a voice. Tesla Inc. (TSLA) was the first public company to adopt Say for its earnings calls and Q&A webcasts. ARK follows as the first fund manager to incorporate Say into its investor communications. "We are excited to partner with a company that shares the same values as ARK," stated Sebastian Benkert, ARK's Chief Marketing Officer. "Most of ARK's ETFs are actively managed, so naturally investors want to understand our decision-making process. Our quarterly webinars always offer investors a direct line of communication to ARK's investment team. With Say, we now are able to make our investor Q&As more transparent and engaging because shareholders vote for questions they find most relevant." "Whether you are invested in a public company, a mutual fund, or an ETF—all investors should have a say. It is important that shareholders have the ability to provide input and we could not be more excited to be giving Say to ARK investors," said Zach Hascoe, Say Co-Founder. "We are powering a first-of-its-kind experience for investors in ETFs and mutual funds, allowing fund holders to share insights, ask questions, and create a productive dialogue directly with investment managers." "With an open research ecosystem, ARK aims to communicate a distinct perspective on the magnitude of technologically enabled disruptive innovation," said Catherine Wood, ARK's Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. "With this an open-source model, ARK achieves new insights. That's why Say is so interesting to us—it adds crowdsourcing to ARK's investor communication."  Transparency seems to pay off. ARK, who is known for being at the forefront of innovation, received three Mutual Fund Industry and ETF Awards from Fund Intelligence in April 2019, including Active ETF of the Year (ARK Innovation ETF, ARKK), ETF Suite of the Year, and ETF Innovation (ARK's Genomic Revolution ETF, ARKG).  About ARK Investment Management LLC Headquartered in New York City, ARK Investment Management LLC is a federally registered investment adviser and privately held investment firm with approximately $7.7 billion assets under management as of March 31, 2018.

Mike Novogratz: Facebook’s GlobalCoin Won’t Rival Bitcoin

Coinspeaker Mike Novogratz: Facebook’s GlobalCoin Won’t Rival BitcoinMajor Bitcoin bull and former Wall Street exec Mike Novogratz recently discussed the current state of the cryptocurrency industry. The Galaxy Digital CEO explained why he thinks the crypto winter is finally over and why ‘Facebook Coin’ won’t rival Bitcoin.During his interview, Novogratz reminded that everyone had their own version of Bitcoin and the supply exponentially grew. Bitcoin, he thinks, had really established itself as a store value. He said:“This is hard to do because there is just one more stored value of this kind. It’s gold. It is hard to be worth something just because it’s worth something. Almost everything else is different. For example, Uber shares are worth something because people are using it. What Bitcoin has done is a unique thing.”He also referred to Bitcoin’s intrinsic value saying:“You can take all the gold in history that has been mined and put it in three Olympic swimming pools and it’s worth $8,5 trillions. Why? Because it sits in the vaults.”Novogratz went to mention that retailers are buying Bitcoin but also the institutions are moving in. There are Yale, Harvard and Stanford endowments.Microsoft Wanting to Link with Bitcoin Blockchain is a Big ThingThe CEO claims the original Bitcoin boom witnessed around 2016-2017 was influenced by the retail-driven investments by around 98%. This means more companies were buying cryptocurrency at a time when it looked like the future of finance. The recent developments in the crypto world are also affected by ‘credentialing’ according to the CEO especially with the recent move by Microsoft in the industry.“Also, there is Microsoft, one of the biggest companies in the world that says they want to do identify solution by linking it to the Bitcoin blockchain. Now this is big.”Microsoft recently announced their initiation of an identity solution to add to the Bitcoin blockchain. As more investments crowd Bitcoin, its value soars higher as witnessed in the recent spike. Microsoft is not the only big organization enabling the ‘credentialization’ of Bitcoin. Not long ago, Facebook lifted all the bans it had imposed on cryptocurrency and any blockchain-related advertisements.He also mentioned Facebook coin saying that it is really important for the ecosystem.“Crypto is going to be part of Facebook’s future. However, this coin will be listed to some stable currency and will be used for payyments. Bitcoin on the other hand is not going to be the payment currency – it will be stored vault, just like gold. If you really think bitcoin is gonna win this store of value, everything else needs to be used for something.”GlobalCoin Isn’t a Threat to BitcoinAs we’ve already wrote, Facebook’s GlobalCoin will probably be established as a stablecoin, pegged to the dollar or local currencies in the countries that will be allowed to use it. It is also likely to run on a private, centralized blockchain, owned and controlled by the company. Based on this fact, it can not be perceived as a direct competition to Bitcoin or other peer to peer decentralized digital currencies.Other coins that piqued Novogratz’s interest include Ethereum and EOS. These projects have to encourage developers to build on top of their platforms. Just few days ago he was comparing various cryptocurrencies with chemical elements in the periodic table. He then considered the role of altcoins, hinting that each coin will have “to prove themselves out” in order to provide a certain use case.On this note, Novogratz argued out that “there’s no one building anything on the Litecoin blockchain,” as opposed to the Ethereum blockchain.Recently, Novogratz made yet another Bitcoin prediction, claiming that the major cryptocurrency will beat its all-time-high record of $20,000 within the next 18 months.Mike Novogratz: Facebook’s GlobalCoin Won’t Rival Bitcoin
