The Fund is in the process of being included on major platforms.

The Artisan Global Discovery Strategy is now available to Australian investors through the Artisan Global Discovery Fund, offered by Copia.

The Artisan Global Discovery Fund invests exclusively in the Artisan Global Discovery UCITS Fund (Fund) which is a sub-fund of Artisan Partners Global Funds plc. The investment manager of the Fund is Artisan Partners Limited Partnership.

Backed by the investment team’s 20-plus year track record, the Fund invests in companies on the cusp of a compelling profit cycle, as they progress from upstart to a professionally-managed enterprise with strong competitive advantages.

As the Fund typically avoids exposure to the largest companies, it may offer portfolio diversification and complementary exposure if used alongside other ‘large company’ benchmark-aware global equity funds and Australian equity strategies.
