Overview

Artisan Partners is a global investment management firm that provides a broad range of high value-added investment strategies in growing asset classes to sophisticated clients around the world.

The foundation of Artisan Partners’ story was set in 1994 by our founders Andy and Carlene Ziegler. At the time, the Zieglers identified two secular trends — talent acquisition and open architecture — that were taking hold in the market. Those two trends shaped the firm’s growth strategy.

The talent acquisition movement within the industry created the opportunity for us to attract investment talent to our firm where high-quality investors are allowed to execute their own investment process without distractions. Open architecture provided the framework to distribute high-quality products more freely through consultants and mutual fund platforms if we had the right talent and results.

Our business model has always been structured around our investment talent. Our autonomous investment teams manage a range of active investment strategies that are diversified by market capitalization, region and investment style. Each team uses a clearly articulated, consistent and repeatable investment process.
