According to Bloomberg, Arks'' roster of nine exchange-traded funds decreased by 48 percent from the start of June 1, to $15.3 billion. That''s the largest drop among the largest 25 U.S. ETF issuers.

The asset loss erupted partly due to fund performance. So far, the Ark funds as a whole have net inflow of $167 million this year.

More than half of that total comes from the Woods flagship Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK) - Get ARK Innovation ETF Report. It achieved a net inflow of $1.24 billion in the six months through June 3, according to VettaFi, an ETF research company.

And, in Ark Innovation, Wood, who has used the word Mamma Cathie for years, hasn''t lost her confidence.

Trailing the S&P 500

Ark Innovation and the other Wood funds have fallen in recent months, despite claiming that she has a five-year investment target.

Ark Innovation''s five-year record might be of real benefit to investors until May 9. The funds five-year return was higher than of the S&P 500 until then. But Ark Innovation''s five-year annualized return was 0.42% up until June 6, down from 13.34% in the S&P 500.

Ark Innovation has dropped 51% so far this year, as Woods technology companies hit the skids. And it has dropped 71% from its February 2021 peak. This has helped keep the kibosh on tech stocks.

Most [fund managers] would likely fail if they had the same results, but Cathie and Ark have a strong following, according to Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Athanasios Psarofagis.
