Here you'll find information about the Artisan Funds and Artisan Partners, the investment advisor to the Artisan Funds.
At Artisan Funds, we strive to offer our shareholders distinctive, high-value-added investment opportunities.
We are not a “family” of indistinguishable funds devised by marketers in a financial services conglomerate. Rather, we are investment professionals, focused on a limited number of distinct investment strategies.
Each of our portfolio managers is a specialist in his or her market, with an investment process created and refined through years of experience — an artisan, if you will.
We believe that experienced, active managers investing in inefficient markets can produce superior returns over time. We welcome long-term investors who share this belief.
