In this episode of Strategic Investor Radio, host Charley Wright interviews Cathie Wood. Ms. Wood is the CEO and CIO of Ark Invest, which is headquartered in New York City. She has more than two decades worth of experience as an economist, equity research analyst, and portfolio manager. In 2014, Ms. Wood founded Ark Invest, which she says is focused on only one thing: Disruptive innovation.
The company’s five big themes are:
- DNA sequencing
- Next-generation Internet
- Automation and artificial intelligence (“AI”)
- Energy storage (she predicts the demise of the internal-combustion engine in the next 10-20 years)
- Blockchain and bitcoin
Indeed, Ms. Wood says Ark Invest probably knows more about blockchain, bitcoin, ether, and ethereum than most buy-side institutions.
