The reflation trade out of growth and into cyclicals in anticipation of a reopened economy has damaged the flagship ETF managed by Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest.

The ARK Disruptive Innovation ETF has declined 32% since its peak at $160 in mid-February. The ETF is down 13% year-to-date, a flip from its 2020 return of nearly 150%.

Despite the negative returns for the ETF in 2021, investors are not backing down from investing alongside Wood, as $6.7 billion has flowed into the ETF year-to-date, according to fund flow data from ETF.com. The ARK ETF still has more than $21 billion in assets under management.
