Artisan Partners launches Developing World UCITS Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Artisan Partners has launched the Artisan Developing World Fund, an Ireland-domiciled UCITS fund managed in line with the Artisan Developing World strategy, which launched on 1 July 2015 and managed USD1,993 million as of 31 December 2018.

The fund is managed by Lewis S Kaufman, founding portfolio manager of the developing World Team and a managing director of Artisan Partners.
 
Kaufman says: “We believe compounded business value drives long-term capital appreciation and seek to optimise our stock selection process for challenges unique to the developing world. Our investment process emphasises financially sound, free cash-flow generative companies with compelling business models, while seeking to mitigate the volatility of returns.”
 
Andrew Marks (pictured), managing director and head of EMEA distribution, says: “We are delighted to have received external funding from a seed client to formally launch this new UCITS Fund. Lewis has a unique investment process, which has proven capable of producing alpha over a full market cycle. And we are confident that his concentrated (portfolio) approach to emerging markets equities will be well received by UCITS investors. This fund is the 3rd new strategy to be added to the Artisan UCITS complex in the last 12 months, and the eighth fund overall.”
 
As of 31 December 2018, 21 per cent of Artisan Partners’ USD96.2 billion in AUM was sourced from clients outside the US, including USD3.6 billion in its UCITS fund complex domiciled in Ireland.
