Past performance does not guarantee and is not a reliable indicator of future results. 

David Samra is the lead portfolio manager for Artisan International Value Strategy. This article represents the views of Matt Reustle of the Business Breakdowns Podcast and David Samra as of 31 January 2024 and those views and opinions presented are their own. The views and opinions expressed are based on current market conditions, which will fluctuate, and those views are subject to change without notice.

Investment Risks: Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The value of portfolio securities selected by the investment team may rise or fall in response to company, market, economic, political, regulatory or other news, at times greater than the market or benchmark index. 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 and less developed markets, including frontier markets. Such risks include new and rapidly changing political and economic structures, which may cause instability; underdeveloped securities markets; and higher likelihood of high levels of inflation, deflation or currency devaluations. 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. Investments will rise and fall with market fluctuations and investor capital is at risk. Investors investing in strategies denominated in non-local currency should be aware of the risk of currency exchange fluctuations that may cause a loss of principal. These risks, among others, are further described in Artisan Partners’ Form ADV, which is available upon request.
