ARK Investment Management increased its holdings of payments services firm Square after its founder, Jack Dorsey, announced Friday the company is creating an “open developer platform.”

  • Following the announcement, Cathie Wood’s New York-based ARK Investment purchased a total of 225,937 shares, according to its daily holding files.

  • Square’s intentions to build out crypto products, including a hardware wallet, align with ARK’s ambitions to realize its exchange-traded fund (ETF).

  • The ARKK fund, which typically invests in tech improvements, bought a total of 179,664 shares while ARKW, typically focused on internet tech, made a further purchase of 46,273 shares.

  • Those purchases also coincide with a further 64,001 of Nasdaq-listed Coinbase shares on Friday, where ARK has previously made significant investments.

  • ARK, which actively trades its funds on a case-by-case basis, sold 409,241 shares of Square in April when prices were hovering around $256 before falling to a near 6-month low of $197, data show.

  • At the closing price in the U.S. equities market on Friday, shares in Square were changing hands for around $237.
