Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized. Value-Added is based on gross of fees returns for each portfolio minus the returns of the benchmark for the since inception period. Inception Dates: Global Opportunities 1 Feb 2007; Global Discovery 1 Sep 2017; U.S. Mid-Cap Growth 1 Apr 1997; U.S. Small-Cap Growth 1 Apr 1995; Global Equity 1 Apr 2010; Non-U.S. Growth 1 Jan 1996; Value Equity 1 Jul 2005; U.S. Mid-Cap Value 1 Apr 1999; Global Value 1 Jul 2007; Non-U.S. Value 1 Jul 2002; Sustainable Emerging Markets 1 Jul 2006; High Income 1 Apr 2014; Developing World 1 Jul 2015; Thematic 1 May 2017. 

Past performance does not guarantee and is not a reliable indicator of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance shown. Composite performance has been presented in both gross and net of investment management fees. The Global Equity, Global Discovery and Thematic Strategies’ investments in initial public offerings (IPOs) made a material contribution to performance. IPO investments may contribute significantly to a small portfolio’s return, an effect that will generally decrease as assets grow. IPO investments may be unavailable in the future. Unlike the Index, the High Income Strategy may hold loans and other security types. At times, this causes material differences in relative performance. The Non-U.S. Small-Mid Growth portfolio's returns may vary greatly over shorter periods due to the limited operating period since inception. 

Investment Risk: Investments will rise and fall with market fluctuations and investor capital is at risk. Investors investing in funds 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 the Important Disclosures section which should be read in conjunction with this material. 
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.  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.  Fixed income investments entail credit and interest rate risk. In general, when interest rates rise, fixed income portfolio values fall and investors may lose principal value. High income securities (junk bonds) are fixed income instruments rated below investment grade. High income securities are speculative, have a higher degree of default risk than higher-rated bonds and may increase the Portfolio’s volatility.  A non-diversified portfolio may invest a larger portion of assets in securities of a smaller number of issuers and performance of a single issuer may affect overall portfolio performance greater than in a diversified portfolio. 

Net-of-fees composite returns were calculated using the highest model investment advisory fees applicable to portfolios within the composite. Fees may be higher for certain pooled vehicles and the composite may include accounts with performance-based fees. All performance results are net of commissions and transaction costs, and have been presented gross and net of investment advisory fees. Dividend income is recorded net of foreign withholding taxes on ex-dividend date or as soon after the ex-dividend date as the information becomes available to Artisan Partners. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis. Performance results for the Index include reinvested dividends and are presented net of foreign withholding taxes but, unlike the portfolio's returns, do not reflect the payment of sales commissions or other expenses incurred in the purchase or sale of the securities included in the indices.
