Starting a hedge/investment fund

Yall must have probably heard of Cathie Woods and her work with Ark Invest. I just wanted to know what exactly is Ark invest and what does it do. How did Cathy manage to set up this fund, and how possible is to replicate such a feat

WSO loses utility and users when the boards are dominated by posts like this. You've also asked about how to get to 7 figures before 30 and investment banking in Miami. I understand that it's difficult to add value before you enter the industry but the wealth of posts already on the site give you an opportunity to learn by researching instead of throwing out new topics every day that attract a bunch of like-minded students.

broman hitting 7 figures at 30 was a pretty valid topic and has no become of the most replied topics on the forum. It has got about 70 constructive replies.Don't discourage others from asking questions everyone has a right to do so, if u didnt like the topic just dont reply to it!

I specifically tried to be understanding / not disparage you for your shitty contributions to the platform in my post above yet you threw MS. It seems like you have your full career trajectory penciled out at this point so good luck with it.

Stop spamming this forum with worthless questions. 

If you can't find these answers yourself you have zero shot of successfully managing money.

I believe it's time for mandatory user certification on WSO
