In-depth Investment Process

 

International investments involve special risks, including currency fluctuation, lower liquidity, different accounting methods and economic and political systems, and higher transaction costs. These risks typically are greater in emerging markets.  Securities of small- and medium-sized companies tend to have a shorter history of operations, be more volatile and less liquid and may have underperformed securities of large companies during some periods.  Value securities may underperform other asset types during a given period.  These risks, among others, are further described in Artisan Partners Form ADV, which is available upon request.
