6 January 2015

San Francisco, California. Artisan Partners today announced that David Geisler, portfolio co-manager for the Artisan Global Small-Cap Growth strategy, has left Artisan Partners. Mark Yockey and Charles-Henri Hamker will continue as portfolio co-managers for the Artisan Global Small-Cap Growth strategy, which they have been since the strategy launched in July 2013.

Mr. Yockey joined Artisan Partners in 1995 and is the founder of the Artisan Partners Global Equity team. He is portfolio manager for the Artisan Non-U.S. Growth, Artisan Global Equity and Artisan Global Small-Cap Growth strategies. Mr. Hamker joined the Artisan Partners Global Equity Team in 2000 and is portfolio manager for the Non-U.S. Small-Cap Growth, Global Equity and Global Small-Cap Growth strategies.

Mr. Yockey and Mr. Hamker have worked together on the Artisan Non-U.S. Small-Cap Growth strategy since it launched in January 2002. The launch of the Global Small-Cap Growth strategy in 2013 was a natural extension of their international small-cap research. Mr. Yockey and Mr. Hamker will continue to manage the Global Small-Cap Growth strategy with the same investment philosophy and process the team has employed since 1995.
