Since Artisan Partners was founded in 1994, we have recognized that the success of an investment management firm depends on the talent of its professionals. As a result, we spend a lot of time focused on finding and developing talent, both internally and externally.
As a talent organization, we truly believe our people are the firm's single greatest asset. We commit tremendous energy to the recruitment, development and retention of our people as they are critical to building lasting relationships with clients and ensuring the long-term success of our firm.
As Artisan Partners has grown over the years, we have maintained a focus on our core business—investment management—and we conduct that business with the same entrepreneurial spirit with which Artisan Partners was founded. We foster a progressive environment where creative thinking and hard work are encouraged. Our associates come to work every day knowing their contributions will make an impact and they will have the autonomy to think creatively to produce the best possible outcomes for our clients and other stakeholders.
Artisan Partners is committed to providing an environment that allows our talent to thrive. Our entrepreneurial culture provides our associates with exposure to multiple business areas, access to senior management and opportunities to participate in cross-functional projects. The opportunity to take charge of one's career path, combined with the opportunity to work alongside exceptional people, creates a positive and collaborative environment where associates are continually motivated and encouraged to progress and develop.
We believe we have some of the best and brightest people in the industry—people who are highly skilled, passionate about our business and willing to go the extra mile.
