Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Artisan Partners announced today that it will launch a new global equity strategy in early 2010. The new strategy will be co-managed by Mark Yockey and Barry Dargan. Mr. Dargan recently joined Artisan from MFS® Investment Management where he was a managing director, portfolio manager of the firm’s international growth equity portfolios and portfolio co-manager of the firm’s global growth equity portfolios.

Mr. Yockey, leader of Artisan’s global equity team, will work with Mr. Dargan to manage and develop the new global equity strategy. Mr. Dargan will have primary responsibility for the day-to-day oversight of the strategy. The duo will be supported by Artisan’s deep and highly experienced global equity analyst team.

Eric Colson, Artisan’s Chief Executive Officer, said, ‘‘We have been committed to growing our investment teams and globalizing our product offerings since Artisan’s inception. We are excited to have the opportunity to develop another active equity strategy, which will combine Barry’s global experience with the strong non-U.S. growth team led by Mark Yockey.’’
