Past performance does not guarantee and is not a reliable indicator of future results. Investment returns and principal values will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown. Call 800.344.1770 for current to most recent month-end performance. Performance may reflect agreements to limit a Fund’s expenses, which would reduce performance if not in effect.

Any person who is in possession of this material is hereby notified that no action has or will be taken that would allow an offering of any Artisan Partners product or service unless in compliance with local regulations. Neither this announcement nor any other material relative to this announcement have been submitted to any local regulatory authority for prior review or approval.

Artisan International Value and Artisan Global Value Funds available through multiple share classes, which have higher investment minimums and lower fees than the Funds’ Investor Share Class.

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. A portfolio’s environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) considerations may limit the investment opportunities available and, as a result, the portfolio may forgo certain investment opportunities and underperform portfolios that do not consider ESG factors. 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. 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 are discussed in the prospectus. Please read it carefully before you invest or send money.

In determining award winners, Investor Business Daily’s analysis uses Morningstar data for each fund’s historical risk-adjusted return compared to the MSCI EAFE index as of 31 December 2023. MSCI EAFE Index measures the performance of developed markets, excluding the US and Canada. The benchmark generally used in comparison with Artisan Global Value Fund is the MSCI All Country World Index which measures the performance of developed and emerging markets. The indexes are unmanaged; includes net reinvested dividends; do not reflect fees or expenses; and are not available for direct investment.
