PROCESS & CURRENT INFORMATION
Investment Process HighlightsIn-depth Philosophy & Process (PDF)
The investment team seeks to invest in companies within its preferred themes with sustainable growth characteristics at attractive valuations that do not reflect their long-term potential.

Themes. The team identifies long-term secular growth trends with the objective of investing in companies that have meaningful exposure to these trends. The team’s fundamental analysis focuses on those industry leaders with attractive growth and valuation characteristics that will be long-term beneficiaries of any structural change and/or trend.

Sustainable Growth. The team applies a fundamental approach to identifying the long-term, sustainable growth characteristics of potential investments. The team seeks high-quality companies that typically have a sustainable competitive advantage, a superior business model and a high-quality management team.

Valuation. The team uses multiple valuation metrics to establish a target price range. The team assesses the relationship between its estimate of a company's sustainable growth prospects and its current valuation.

The performance quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares in the Fund, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized. The Fund's performance information shown does not reflect the deduction of a 2% redemption fee on shares held by an investor for 90 days or less and, if reflected, the fee would reduce the performance quoted. 

A mutual fund’s NAV is the value of a single share and is computed daily using closing prices as of the NYSE closing time – usually 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, but sometimes earlier. Securities for which prices are not readily available (such as when there are significant changes in one or more U.S. market indices) are valued at a fair value under the Funds’ Valuation Procedures as described in the Funds’ prospectus. When fair value pricing is employed, the value of a portfolio security used by the Fund to calculate its NAV may differ from (and consequently be higher or lower than) quoted or published prices for the same security. Fair value pricing is not employed by market indices.

Quotations of mutual fund performance are calculated using NAV and are therefore impacted by fair value pricing.

Important Fund Risk Disclosure

International investments involve special risks, including currency fluctuation, lower liquidity, different accounting methods and economic and political systems, and higher transaction costs. These risks typically are greater in emerging markets. Securities of medium-sized companies tend to have a shorter history of operations, be more volatile and less liquid and may have underperformed securities of large companies during some periods. Growth securities may underperform other asset types during a given period.



Important Index Disclosure

An investment can not be made directly into an index.

The MSCI EAFE Index is an unmanaged, market-weighted index of companies in developed markets, excluding the U.S. and Canada. Its returns include net reinvested dividends but, unlike Fund returns, do not reflect the payment of sales commissions or other expenses incurred in the purchase or sale of the securities included in the Index.

The MSCI EAFE Index is an index of companies in developed markets, excluding the U.S. and Canada. The MSCI ACWI (All Country World) ex-U.S. Index is an index designed to measure the equity market performance of developed and emerging markets, excluding the United States. The indices are unmanaged, market-weighted indices. The returns of the indices include net reinvested dividends but, unlike the Fund's returns, do not reflect the payment of sales commissions or other expenses incurred in the purchase or sale of the securities included in the indices. Net and Gross indices reinvest dividends; Net indices take withholding taxes into consideration, whereas Gross indices do not.

The MSCI information may only be used for your internal use, may not be reproduced or redisseminated in any form and may not be used as a basis for or a component of any financial instruments or products or indices. None of the MSCI information is intended to constitute investment advice or a recommendation to make (or refrain from making) any kind of investment decision and may not be relied on as such. Historical data and analysis should not be taken as an indication or guarantee of any future performance analysis, forecast or prediction. The MSCI information is provided on an “as is” basis and the user of this information assumes the entire risk of any use made of this information. MSCI, each of its affiliates and each other person involved in or related to compiling, computing or creating any MSCI information (collectively, the “MSCI Parties”) expressly disclaims all warranties (including, without limitation, any warranties of originality, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, non-infringement, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) with respect to this information. Without limiting any of the foregoing, in no event shall any MSCI Party have any liability for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, punitive, consequential (including, without limitation, lost profits) or any other damages.

(“MSCI”) and Standard & Poor’s, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (“S&P”) and is licensed for use by Artisan Partners.

Market Capitalization is calculated by FactSet using the price as of the most recent month-end multiplied by the number of shares outstanding as shown in the financial statements of the issuer.

The Weighted Average Market Cap is the average of the market capitalizations of the companies in the portfolio weighted by the size of each company's position within the portfolio. Market capitalization is the aggregate value of all of a company's outstanding equity securities.

The Weighted Average Growth Rate (the annual rate at which a company's earnings is expected to grow) is the average of the 3-5 year forecasted growth rates of each company in the portfolio, weighted by the size of the company's position in the portfolio.

The Weighted Harmonic Average P/E (a measure of how expensive a stock is) is the harmonic average, which measures the price/earnings ratio of the Fund’s entire portfolio, excluding negative earners, weighted by the size of the company’s position within the portfolio. The earnings figures used for FY1 and FY2 are estimates for the current unreported fiscal year and for the next unreported fiscal year, respectively.

In general, the Turnover Ratio is calculated by dividing the lesser of purchases or sales of portfolio securities for the fiscal year, by the monthly average of the value of portfolio securities owned by the Fund during the fiscal year.
