Bullish on Cathie Wood’s popular ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEARCA:ARKK)? AXS Investments launched its AXS 2X Innovation ETF (TARCH) on Monday, a leveraged ETF that tracks the performance of the well-known tech-focused and disruptive fund.

TARK intends to offer the financial community a 200% return on the daily performance of the ARK Innovation ETF. TARK will achieve this by entering into swap agreements to achieve twice the performance of ARKK for a single day.

Some market participants feel that the recent decline in disruptive innovation stocks has fallen too far too fast, and TARK plans to offer these high-conviction investors an option to capitalize on short-term long exposure to a basket of innovative and disruptive companies.

TARK will also begin trading on the Nasdaq and offer an expense ratio of 1.15%.

TARK isn’t the first fund to fork offerings from Wood, which has caught investors’ attention by focusing on the innovation space. The Tuttle Capital Short Innovation ETF (NASDAQ: SARK) has thrived following ARKK’s recent collapse, providing an inverse position to ARKK’s performance.

Year-to-Date Price Action: ARKK -50.9%SARK +71.9%.
