Artisan Partners' purpose is to generate and compound wealth over the long-term for our clients. The wealth we generate improves retirement outcomes, pays for education, funds charitable purposes and in general improves people's lives. We are proud of our track record for these people and dedicated to continuing and improving it.
In addition to delivering for clients, we work to promote success across a diverse group of employees—ideally over entire careers—and successful and sustainable financial outcomes for our shareholders. Operating ethically and with integrity are also fundamental to Who We Are and to our sustainability as a firm.

Our compliance program is overseen by our Global Chief Compliance Officer, who reports directly to our Chief Legal Officer and has direct reporting obligations to our Board of Directors.
