This report should be read in conjunction with the Trust’s prospectus.
The principal risks of investing in the ARK ETFs include: Market Risk. The value of the Funds’ assets will fluctuate as the markets in which the Funds invest fluctuate. The value of the Funds’ investments may decline, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably, simply because of economic changes or other events, such as inflation (or expectations for inflation), interest rates, global demand for particular products or resources, natural disasters or events, exchange trading suspensions and closures (including exchanges of a Fund’s underlying securities), infectious disease outbreaks or pandemics, terrorism, regulatory events and government controls, that affect large portions of the market. Equity Securities Risk: The value of the equity securities the Funds hold may fall due to general market and economic conditions, perceptions regarding the industries in which the issuers of securities the Funds hold participate or factors relating to specific companies in which the Funds invest (e.g., litigation or government regulation), among other factors. Equity securities may also be particularly sensitive to general movements in the stock market, and a decline in the broader market may affect the value of the Fund’s equity investments. The Funds may invest in stock of, warrants to purchase stock of, and other interests in special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) or similar special purposes entities. A SPAC is a publicly traded company that raises investment capital for the purpose of acquiring or merging with an existing company. Investments in SPACs and similar entities are subject to a variety of risks beyond those associated with other equity securities. Because SPACs and similar entities do not have any operating history or ongoing business other than seeking acquisitions, the value of their securities is particularly dependent on the ability of the SPAC’s management to identify a merger target and complete an acquisition. Until an acquisition or merger is completed, a SPAC generally invests its assets, less a portion retained to cover expenses, in U.S. government securities, money market securities and cash and does not typically pay dividends in respect of its common stock. As a result, it is possible that an investment in a SPAC may lose value. Foreign Securities Risk: Investments in the securities of foreign issuers involve risks beyond those associated with investments in U.S. securities such as risks of currency exchange rates, differences in foreign accounting and legal standards, the availability of less reliable financial information, and government restrictions on repatriation of capital. Health Care Sector Risk: Companies in the health care sector may be adversely affected by government regulations and government health care programs, restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, increases or decreases in the cost of medical products and services and product liability claims, among other factors. Consumer Discretionary Risk: The consumer discretionary sector may be affected by changes in domestic and international economies, exchange and interest rates, competition, consumers’ disposable income and consumer preferences, social trends and marketing campaigns. Industrials Sector Risk: Companies in the industrials sector may be adversely affected by changes in government regulation (such as through the imposition or removal of tariffs), world events, economic conditions, environmental damages, product liability claims and exchange rates. Information Technology Sector Risk: Information technology companies face intense competition, both domestically and internationally, which may have an adverse effect on profit margins. The markets in which many information technology companies compete face rapidly evolving industry standards and government regulations, frequent new service and product announcements, introductions and enhancements, and changing customer demands. Communications Sector Risk: Communication companies are particularly vulnerable to the potential obsolescence of products and services due to technological advancement and the innovation of competitors. Companies in the communications sector may also be affected by other competitive pressures, such as pricing competition, as well as research and development costs, substantial capital requirements and government regulation. Financial Technology Sector Risk: Companies in the financial technology (“FinTech”) sector that are developing financial technologies that seek to disrupt or displace established financial institutions generally face competition from much larger and more established firms. FinTech companies may not currently derive any revenue, and there is no assurance that such companies will derive any revenue from innovative technologies in the future. Cryptocurrency Investment Risk: The Funds may have exposure to cryptocurrency, such as bitcoin, indirectly through an investment in a grantor trust (e.g., the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (BTC)) that will experience any associated volatility of the underlying cryptocurrency. ARKW may also have exposure to bitcoin through other pooled investment vehicles that invest in bitcoin, such as exchange-traded funds that are domiciled and listed for trading in Canada. The Funds’ exposure to cryptocurrencies may change over time and, accordingly, such exposure may not always be present in the Funds’ portfolios. Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin are not “fiat” currencies of any central bank or government and currently are not subject to the authority of any central bank or government authority and are therefore not backed by any government, and regulatory and tax treatment of cryptocurrencies continues to develop. Disruptive Innovation Risk: Companies that the adviser and sub-adviser believe create and capitalize on disruptive innovation and developing technologies to displace older technologies or create new markets may not in fact do so. Companies that initially develop a novel technology may not be able to capitalize on the technology. The Fund may invest in a company that does not currently derive any revenue from disruptive innovations or technologies, and there is no assurance that a company will derive any revenue from disruptive innovations or technologies in the future. Please see the ARK ETFs’ current prospectuses for more detailed descriptions of the risks of investing in the ARK ETFs.

Shareholder Letter
(Unaudited)
Dear Shareholder:
ARK Investment Management LLC (“ARK”), the investment adviser to the ARK ETFs, specializes in thematic investing in disruptive innovation. The ARK ETFs include portfolio companies that we believe are leading and benefiting from five innovation platforms: artificial intelligence (AI), energy storage, robotics, DNA sequencing, and blockchain technology. These platforms involve 14 technologies including gene therapies, 3D printing, cloud computing, big data analytics, and cryptocurrencies. According to our estimates, the five innovation platforms and 14 technologies should generate more than $75 trillion in business value and wealth creation over the next decade. Today, we believe these platforms account for less than $14 trillion in global equity market capitalization, giving investors an opportunity to capitalize on long term growth opportunities if they stay on the right side of change.
ARK believes it is imperative for investors to stay on the right side of change because our research suggests that the global economy has entered a period of convulsive changes, some exceptionally good and others devastating, that will shape financial markets for years to come. Thanks to seeds planted during the tech and telecom bubble more than 20 years ago, record-breaking technological changes are creating not only exponential growth opportunities but also black holes in global economies and financial markets. Staying on the right side of change could determine success and failure not only in investment portfolios but also in careers, companies, and countries.
Where are the black holes associated with technologically enabled innovation? In our view, any company not investing aggressively in one or more of five major innovation platforms and 14 technologies evolving today will lose its way. In harm’s way are companies that have spent the last 10-20 years engineering their financial results to satisfy the short-term demands of short-sighted investors. We believe those that have leveraged their balance sheets to buy back shares and pay dividends are at particular risk because deflation can ravage debt holders: technologically enabled innovation is deflationary. Stretching for yield, fixed income investors have enabled this behavior and, at some point, could have to pay for it.
So, investors beware. According to our research, innovation is evolving at such a rapid pace that traditional equity and fixed income benchmarks are being populated increasingly by so-called value traps, stocks and bonds that are “cheap” for a reason. Critical to investment success will be moving to the right side of change, avoiding industries and companies in the crosshairs of  “creative destruction” and embracing those creating “disruptive innovation”
On the following pages, you will find information relating to your ARK ETF investment. If you have any questions, I encourage you to contact your financial advisor or ARK directly. You can find additional information, including our daily portfolio holdings, on the ARK ETF website located at: www.ark-funds.com.
We appreciate the opportunity to help you meet your investment goals and thank you for enabling us to invest for you at the pace of innovation!
Sincerely,

Management’s Discussion of Fund Performance
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_arketfnew-bw.jpg]
(Unaudited)
Market Review and Investment Strategy
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, global equity markets appreciated despite the continued volatility associated with COVID‐19. At the start of the fiscal year in August 2020, the markets already had recovered rapidly from the sharp 30%+ drawdown in the equity market earlier in the year. This V-shaped rebound set the stage for strong economic momentum in a world scrambling to adjust to the "new normal."
On the back of record‐breaking monetary and fiscal stimulus, public equities rebounded dramatically. Growth stocks – particularly those associated with companies solving problems created by the pandemic– outperformed value stocks significantly through the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. This divergence also could have been related to fears of a relapse into recession and the “creative destruction” that innovation is fomenting in traditional value sectors like financial services, energy, and industrials. In mid‐February, however, cyclical sectors around the world began to recover as producers were scrambling to catch up with consumer demand that had depleted inventories. ARK's expectations for a healthy rotation into more value‐oriented, cyclical strategies proved correct as the bull market broadened out and strengthened.
During the fiscal year, the movement in interest rates was remarkable. In December 2020, the US Treasury yield curve steepened suddenly, suggesting that bond investors were anticipating rapid GDP growth and/or higher inflation. During the first quarter of 2021, 10‐year Treasury bond yields nearly doubled from 0.91% on January 4th to 1.74% on March 31st, stoking fears of inflation. Never have interest rates doubled in such a short period of time. By the end of July 2021, the US Treasury 10‐Year yield had declined 50 basis points to 1.24%, suggesting that deflation instead of inflation could be the key risk to the global economic outlook.
While many economists and strategists are weighing the odds of inflation, ARK remains focused on the risks of deflation. Despite a record jump in the US consumer savings rate during the pandemic, spending shifted from services to goods, forcing businesses to scramble to keep up with higher‐than‐expected demand. ARK believes this profound shift in consumer behavior may have resulted in businesses double and triple‐ordering goods which, as consumers shift spending back from goods to services, could result in excess inventory accumulation, ending supply chain disruptions as quickly as they began. In response to the excess supply, commodity prices could unwind as sharply as they have increased, causing cyclical deflation. Secular price deflation – both good and bad – could add to the pressures. We believe innovation is the source of good deflation, as learning curves cut costs and increase productivity. Conversely, companies that have not prepared for the surge in innovation now underway, acquiescing instead to the demands of short‐term oriented shareholders demanding share buybacks and dividends and leveraging their balance sheets to do so, are likely to suffer from bad deflation. To service debt, they could be forced to cut prices as innovation disrupts their existing world order.
ARK continues to research and discover companies it believes are causing or embracing disruptive innovation, creating potential pockets of rapid growth in an otherwise uncertain growth environment. Relative to the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index, ARK’s active ETFs outperformed these broad-based indexes during the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, while ARK’s self‐indexed ETFs turned in mixed performance.

Management’s Discussion of Fund Performance (continued)
(Unaudited)
Investment Results: ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG)
The ARK Genomic Revolution ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in companies across multiple sectors, including health care, information technology, materials, energy and consumer discretionary, that are relevant to the Fund’s investment theme of the genomics revolution.
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG) outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKG’s performance were Pacific Biosciences (PACB), CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP), Invitae Corp (NVTA), Intellia Therapeutics (NTLA), and Twist Bioscience (TWST). Pacific Biosciences (PACB) announced major technological and business breakthroughs as well as a $900 million investment from SoftBank in the first quarter of 2021. Both the UK-based Welcome Sanger Institute and the Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas City have increased their investments in Sequel IIe sequencers and Pacific Biosciences also expanded its management team by hiring two Illumina (ILMN) alumni. Finally, in the first quarter of 2021, the company announced a multi-year collaboration with Invitae (NVTA) to develop an ultra-high-throughput sequencing platform based on Pacific Biosciences’ HiFi, a technology which, in our view, provides the most accurate and complete view of the genome. CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP) also contributed to performance thanks to positive industry and company news, primarily in the fourth quarter of 2020. Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier, the former a co-founder of Editas, Intellia, and Caribou and the latter a co-founder of CRISPR Therapeutics, won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery of CRISPR Cas9 gene-editing technology. Additionally, CRISPR Therapeutics announced encouraging data on early but potential cures for sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia at the American Society of Hematology (ASH). The company also presented data on its CAR-T cell trial targeting B cell malignancies, which demonstrated a 50% complete response rate at three months in its third dose level cohort. Lastly, CRISPR Therapeutics received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to support CRISPR Cas9-based HIV therapies research. Intellia Therapeutics (NTLA) contributed to performance after publishing the first-ever clinical data demonstrating the potential safety and efficacy of in vivo genome editing. The drug candidate,
NTLA-2001, is positioned as a single-dose cure for the hereditary form of ATTR amyloidosis (hATTR), a deadly disease caused by excessive expression of the amyloid protein.
The biggest detractors from ARKG’s performance were Teladoc Health (TDOC), Illumina (ILMN), Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS), Berkely Lights (BLI), and Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX). Despite reporting a strong fiscal year, shares of Teladoc (TDOC) detracted in the face of competitive noise in the telemedicine space from Amazon (AMZN), Talkspace, and Hims & Hers (HIMS). Additionally, “stay-at-home stocks” underwent a valuation reset as COVID-19 vaccinations proliferated. ARK believes that virtual care is here to stay and that Teladoc’s data science and comprehensive platform are its moats. Historically in the US, healthcare data has been highly fragmented, an impediment that Teladoc appears to be overcoming. Thanks to its recent acquisition of Livongo, we believe that Teladoc has strengthened its data and analytical capabilities. Shares of Berkely Lights (BLI) struggled as the company announced missed earnings with mixed guidance. In ARK’s view, Berkeley Lights will be a central actor in developing and manufacturing cell-based products. Berkeley’s products will be used by pharmaceutical companies, contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs), and contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs), and hospitals to optimize cell therapies. During the period, Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) abandoned further development of VX-864, a phase 2 drug for alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD). We believe that the disappointing news put selling pressure on the company’s public shares.

Investment Results: ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (ARKQ)
The ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in securities of autonomous technology and robotics companies that are relevant to the Fund’s investment theme of robotics and autonomous technology.
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Robotics & Autonomous Technology ETF (ARKQ) outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKQ’s performance were Tesla (TSLA), Materialise (MTLS), BYD Co (BYDDY), Deere & Co (DE), and Trimble (TRMB). Appreciation in Tesla (TSLA) was driven by a strong second half of 2020, during which time the stock was added to the S&P 500 Index (December), and a 2021 second quarter earnings report that beat both top- and bottom-line expectations while improving its automotive gross margin (excluding regulatory credits) year-over-year. We believe that many sources of volatility have begun to dissipate, including tweets from Elon Musk around Bitcoin. Tesla has since surprised investors to the upside with the number of China-made EV deliveries, and Gigafactory Shanghai is now the primary export hub of high-quality vehicles. Tesla continues to be a leader in electric vehicle market share and we believe that its growing fleet gives it access to an unparalleled amount of valuable driving data as it ramps up its autonomous capabilities. Deere & Co (DE) appreciated in anticipation of President Biden’s infrastructure proposal and better than expected first quarter 2021 results thanks to improved conditions in the agriculture and construction sectors. Shares of Trimble (TRMB) appreciated on the back of positive news relating to new partnerships, new technology developments, and strong earnings beats on both the top and bottom
lines. Over the past year, Trimble has focused its portfolio and divested non-core businesses, while continuing to invest in its cloud platform and autonomy.
The biggest detractors from ARKQ’s performance were 2U Inc (TWOU), Blade Air Mobility (BLDE), Splunk (SPLK), Baidu (BIDU), and Vuzix (VUZI). Shares of education technology firm 2U Inc (TWOU) depreciated in February 2021 after a mixed earnings release and the general unwinding of  “stay-at-home stocks” as COVID-19 vaccinations proliferated. Blade Air Mobility (BLDE) experienced volatility after its SPAC announcement in December 2020. Shares traded up substantially and eventually reverted to their original levels. Part of this decline could have been due to concerns with its approach to investor relations before going public. ARK believes air taxi growth will pick up faster than expected, and Blade should benefit as air travel increases. Chinese stocks, in particular shares of technology-focused companies, sold off broadly after the central government continued its regulatory crackdown. Shares of Baidu Inc. (BIDU) were impacted by the broad sell-off.

Investment Results: ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK)
The ARK Innovation ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in securities of companies that rely on or benefit from the development of new products or services, technological improvements and advancements in scientific research relating to the areas of genomics (“Genomic Revolution Theme”), robotics and autonomous technology (“Robotics and Autonomous Technology Theme”), next generation internet (“Next Generation Internet Theme”) or financial technology (“Fintech Theme”).
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Innovation ETF outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKK’s performance were Tesla (TSLA), Roku (ROKU), Intellia Therapeutics (NTLA), Square (SQ), and CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP). Appreciation in Tesla (TSLA) was driven by a strong second half of 2020, during which time the stock was added to the S&P 500 Index (December), and a 2021 second quarter earnings report that beat both top- and bottom-line expectations while improving its automotive gross margin (excluding regulatory credits) year-over-year. We believe that many sources of volatility have begun to dissipate, including tweets from Elon Musk around Bitcoin. Tesla has since surprised investors to the upside with the number of China-made EV deliveries, and Gigafactory Shanghai is now the primary export hub of high-quality vehicles. Tesla continues to be a leader in electric vehicle market share and we believe that its growing fleet gives it access to an unparalleled amount of valuable driving data as it ramps up its autonomous capabilities. Roku (ROKU) contributed to performance after positive developments in content agreements and acquisitions, the consumer shift out of traditional TV into streaming resulting in account growth, international expansion, and platform revenue strength. Intellia Therapeutics (NTLA) contributed to performance after publishing the first-ever clinical data demonstrating the safety and efficacy of in vivo genome editing. The drug candidate, NTLA-2001, is positioned as a single-dose cure for the hereditary form of ATTR amyloidosis (hATTR), a deadly disease caused by excessive expression of the amyloid protein.
The biggest detractors from ARKK’s performance were Teladoc Health (TDOC), LendingTree (TREE), Coinbase Global (COIN), 2U Inc (TWOU), and Illumina (ILMN). Despite reporting a strong fiscal year, shares of Teladoc (TDOC) detracted in the face of competitive noise in the telemedicine space from Amazon (AMZN), Talkspace, and Hims & Hers (HIMS). Additionally, “stay-at-home stocks” underwent a valuation reset as COVID-19 vaccinations proliferated. ARK believes that virtual care is here to stay and that Teladoc’s data science and comprehensive platform are its moats. Historically in the US, healthcare data has been highly fragmented, an impediment that Teladoc appears to be overcoming. Thanks to its recent acquisition of Livongo, we believe that Teladoc has strengthened its data and analytical capabilities. LendingTree (TREE) detracted from performance primarily in the fourth quarter of 2020 after it lowered guidance and again after GCI Liberty disclosed that it would sell its stake in the stock. Additionally, in the first half of 2021, shares of LendingTree responded to mixed earnings and increased competitive pressure. Coinbase Global (COIN) responded to a 45% drop in the price of bitcoin from May 12, 2021 through July 19, 2021, precipitated in part we believe by Elon Musk’s second thoughts about the heavy use of energy in bitcoin mining. ARK believes that bitcoin mining, when incorporated into solar+battery utility ecosystems, could accelerate the proliferation of renewables faster than otherwise would be the case.

Investment Results: ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ARKW)
The ARK Next Generation Internet ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in securities of companies that are relevant to the Fund’s investment theme of next generation internet.
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ARKW) outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKW’s performance were Tesla (TSLA), Roku (ROKU), Square (SQ), Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), and Snap (SNAP). Appreciation in Tesla (TSLA) was driven by a strong second half of 2020, during which time the stock was added to the S&P 500 Index (December), and a 2021 second quarter earnings report that beat both top- and bottom-line expectations while improving its automotive gross margin (excluding regulatory credits) year-over-year. We believe that many sources of volatility have begun to dissipate, including tweets from Elon Musk around Bitcoin. Tesla has since surprised investors to the upside with the number of China-made EV deliveries, and Gigafactory Shanghai is now the primary export hub of high-quality vehicles. Tesla continues to be a leader in electric vehicle market share and we believe that its growing fleet gives it access to an unparalleled amount of valuable driving data as it ramps up its autonomous capabilities. Roku (ROKU) also contributed after positive developments in content agreements and acquisitions, the consumer shift out of traditional TV into streaming resulting in account growth, international expansion, and platform revenue strength. Square (SQ) appreciated as the pandemic accelerated the adoption of digital wallets, as seen by the rapid growth of Square’s Cash App. The company also experienced a faster than expected rebound of its seller business, strong earnings reports, and strategic initiatives, including activity in the cryptocurrency space.
The biggest detractors from ARKW’s performance were Teladoc Health (TDOC), Skillz (SKLZ), Coinbase Global (COIN), LendingTree (TREE), and Pinduoduo (PDD). Despite reporting a strong fiscal year, shares of Teladoc (TDOC) detracted in the face of competitive noise in the telemedicine space from Amazon (AMZN), Talkspace, and Hims & Hers (HIMS). Additionally, “stay-at-home stocks” underwent a valuation reset as COVID-19 vaccinations proliferated. ARK believes that virtual care is here to stay and that Teladoc’s data science and comprehensive platform are its moats. Historically in the US, healthcare data has been highly fragmented, an impediment that Teladoc appears to be overcoming. Thanks to its recent acquisition of Livongo, we believe that Teladoc has strengthened its data and analytical capabilities. Shares of Skillz Inc. (SKLZ) depreciated based on concerns surrounding a short report in March 2021 and questioning of the company’s concentration of revenue. ARK believes that Skillz’ platform is misunderstood and that Skillz’ growth is being underestimated by consensus views. Coinbase Global (COIN) responded to a 45% drop in the price of bitcoin from May 12, 2021 through July 19, 2021, precipitated in part we believe by Elon Musk’s second thoughts about the heavy use of energy in bitcoin mining. ARK believes that bitcoin mining, when incorporated into solar+battery utility ecosystems, could accelerate the proliferation of renewables faster than otherwise would be the case.

Investment Results: ARK Fintech Innovation ETF (ARKF)
The ARK Fintech Innovation ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in securities of companies that are relevant to the Fund’s investment theme of financial technology (“Fintech”) innovation.
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Fintech Innovation ETF (ARKF) outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKF’s performance were Square (SQ), Sea Ltd (SE), Pinterest (PINS), Snap (SNAP), and Silvergate Capital (SI). Square (SQ) appreciated as the pandemic accelerated the adoption of digital wallets, as seen by the rapid growth of Square’s Cash App. The company also experienced a faster than expected rebound of its seller business, strong earnings reports, and strategic initiatives, including activity in the cryptocurrency space. Sea Limited (SE) saw its revenues increase over the period. The company continued to do well with its self-developed global hit game, Free Fire, and grew average daily orders significantly within its e-commerce platform, Shopee. Pinterest (PINS) contributed to performance after reporting better than expected revenue growth in multiple quarters, alongside positive trends in net income improvement and growth in monthly active users. Pinterest could be benefitting from an accelerated shift in the advertising market from linear TV to social media platforms.
The biggest detractors from ARKF’s performance were KE Holdings (BEKE), Opendoor Technologies (OPEN), LendingTree (TREE),
Coinbase Global (COIN), and Ping An Healthcare and Technology (188 HK). Shares of KE Holdings (BEKE), China’s largest real estate brokerage platform, sold off during the government crackdown in China. Specifically, China issued a joint notice from eight ministries that plans to introduce regulations across the broad real estate industry, covering developers, brokers, rental platforms, and HOAs. Despite beating first-quarter 2021 expectations, shares of Opendoor Technologies (OPEN) sold off in part due to potential signs of the housing market slowing down. ARK also believes that shares are continuing to be punished in a higher interest rate environment. LendingTree (TREE) detracted from performance primarily in the fourth quarter of 2020 after it lowered guidance and again after GCI Liberty disclosed that it would sell its stake in the stock. Additionally, in the first half of 2021, shares of LendingTree responded to mixed earnings and increased competitive pressure.

Investment Results: ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (ARKX)
The ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF is an actively managed exchange traded fund that invests in securities of companies that are relevant to the Fund’s investment theme of space exploration. ARK defines “Space Exploration” as leading, enabling, or benefitting from technologically enabled products and/or services that occur beyond the surface of the Earth.
Since the inception of the fund on March 30, 2021, through July 31, 2021, the ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (ARKX) underperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to ARKX’s performance were Trimble (TRMB), NVIDIA (NVDA), Raven Industries (RAVN), Alphabet (GOOG), and Iridium Communications (IRDM). Shares of Trimble (TRMB) appreciated on the back of positive news relating to new partnerships, new technology developments, and strong earnings beats on both the top and bottom lines. Over the past year, Trimble has focused its portfolio and divested non-core businesses, while continuing to invest in its cloud platform and autonomy. Nvidia (NVDA) appreciated throughout the period following several quarters of strong revenue growth and positive guidance. Gaming revenue outperformed following launch of the RTX 3000 GPU line and on the back of a surge in cryptocurrency miner demand, while Datacenter revenue was boosted by continued adoption of GPUs for accelerating AI training. The stock also benefited from CEO Jensen Hwang’s optimism surrounding the ARM acquisition, sell-side upgrades, and a strong move in semiconductor stocks generally during the second quarter. During Investor Day, Nvidia also unveiled the Omniverse Platform, its Grace CPU, and an AI LaunchPad. In June 2021, CNH announced an agreement to acquire Raven Industries
(RAVN) for a significant premium. Raven Industries makes precision agriculture and high-altitude balloons and has placed a strong focus on autonomous agriculture equipment in recent years, while CNH is the second-largest agricultural equipment manufacturer globally.
The biggest detractors from ARKX’s performance were JD Logistics (2618 HK), Virgin Galactic (SPCE), Workhorse Group (WKHS), Komatsu Ltd (6301 JP), and JD.com (JD). Chinese stocks, in particular shares of technology-focused companies, sold off broadly after the central government continued its regulatory crackdown. Shares of JD Logistics (2618 HK) were impacted by the broad sell-off. Virgin Galactic (SPCE) depreciated not only in response to intensified competition from Blue Origin and SpaceX but also to lower than expected earnings and revenue. Furthermore, the stock was impacted by flight schedule delays and Founder Richard Branson’s decision to sell shares. WKHS suffered as Capitol Hill failed to clarify its position on the conversion of the US Postal Services’ fleet to electric vehicles. ARK exited WKHS to capitalize on the market’s downside volatility by rotating into higher conviction names.

Investment Results: The 3D Printing ETF (PRNT)
The 3D Printing ETF is an indexed exchange traded fund that seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the Total 3D-Printing Index, which is designed to track the price movements of the stocks of companies involved in the 3D printing industry.
The 3D Printing ETF is the only pure-play ETF dedicated to the 3D printing ecosystem. During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, The 3D Printing ETF (PRNT) outperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to PRNT’s performance were 3D Systems (DDD), SLM Solutions (AM3D GR), Materialise (MTLS), Straumann Holding (STMN SW), and ExOne (XONE). 3D Systems (DDD) was a top contributor after the company reported better than expected preliminary results in early January 2021, leading to a gap up in share price.
The biggest detractors from PRNT’s performance were Desktop Metal (DM), Nano Dimension (NNDM), Proto Labs (PRLB), Exco Technologies (XTC CN), and Eastman Kodak (KODK). Desktop Metal (DM) was the largest detractor from performance after Velo3D, another metal 3D printing company, announced in the first quarter of 2021 that it would go public via SPAC. In our view, each company specializes in a different printing technology focused on different applications.

Investment Results: The ARK Israel Innovative Technology ETF (IZRL)
The ARK Israel Innovative Technology ETF is an indexed exchange traded fund that seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the ARK Israeli Innovation Index, which is designed to track the price movements of exchange-listed Israeli companies whose main business operations are causing disruptive innovation in the areas of genomics, biotechnology, industrials, manufacturing, the Internet, and/or information technology.
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021, the ARK Israel Innovative Technology ETF (IZRL) underperformed the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index.
The top contributors to IZRL’s performance were Fiverr International (FVRR), Perion Network (PERI), InMode (INMD), Fattal Holdings (FTAL IT), and Stratasys (SSYS). Shares of InMode (INMD) appreciated steadily over the fiscal period due to strong earnings reports for each quarter, beating both revenue and earnings estimates.
The biggest detractors from IZRL’s performance were BiondVax Pharmaceuticals (BVXV), Pluristem Therapeutics (PSTI), PolyPid Ltd
(PYPD), RoboGroup (ROBO IT), and Nano-X Imaging (NNOX). Pluristem Therapeutics (PSTI) depreciated sharply in the fourth quarter of 2020 due to unfavorable results of a Phase III study for the treatment of critical limb ischemia (CLI). Following a recommendation from the independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC), the company decided to terminate the CLI study to focus on different therapeutic areas.

Shareholder Expense Examples
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_arketfnew-bw.jpg]
(Unaudited)
As a shareholder of an ARK ETF (each, a “Fund” and collectively, “Funds”) you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs for purchasing and selling shares; and (2) ongoing costs, including management fees and other Fund expenses. The following examples are intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars and cents) of investing in the Funds and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other funds.
The examples below are based on an investment of  $1,000 invested at the beginning of the six-month period and held for the entire period (February 1, 2021 through July 31, 2021).
Actual Expenses
The first line under each Fund in the table below provides information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use the information in this line, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. Simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the first line for your Fund under the heading entitled “Expenses Paid During the Period” to estimate the expenses you paid on your account during the period.
Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes
The second line under each Fund in the table below provides information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on each Fund’s actual expense ratio and an assumed rate of return of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the Fund’s actual return. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate your actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in your Fund to other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of other funds.
Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs, such as brokerage commissions paid on purchases and sales of Fund shares. Therefore, the second line under each Fund in the table is useful in comparing ongoing Fund costs only and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.

Fair Value Measurement
The Fund discloses the fair value of its investments in a hierarchy that distinguishes between: (i) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund (observable inputs) and (ii) the Fund’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available under the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The three levels defined by the hierarchy are as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).

Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs (including each Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).
The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.
The following is a summary of the valuations as of July 31, 2021, based upon the three levels defined above:

Fair Value Measurement
The Fund discloses the fair value of its investments in a hierarchy that distinguishes between: (i) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund (observable inputs) and (ii) the Fund’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available under the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The three levels defined by the hierarchy are as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).

Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs (including each Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).
The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.
The following is a summary of the valuations as of July 31, 2021, based upon the three levels defined above:

Fair Value Measurement
The Fund discloses the fair value of its investments in a hierarchy that distinguishes between: (i) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund (observable inputs) and (ii) the Fund’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available under the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The three levels defined by the hierarchy are as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).

Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs (including each Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).
The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.
The following is a summary of the valuations as of July 31, 2021, based upon the three levels defined above:

Fair Value Measurement
The Fund discloses the fair value of its investments in a hierarchy that distinguishes between: (i) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund (observable inputs) and (ii) the Fund’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available under the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The three levels defined by the hierarchy are as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).

Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs (including each Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).
The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.
The following is a summary of the valuations as of July 31, 2021, based upon the three levels defined above:
