The foundation of Artisan Partners’ story was set in 1994 by 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 to attract investment talent to the 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 given the right talent and results.
Artisan Partners is proud to partner with Copia Investment Partners, an independent Australian investment management group.
