Lewis Kaufman joins Artisan Partners


Artisan Partners Asset Management has recruited Lewis Kaufman to start a new autonomous investment team –  the firm’s seventh in total. 

At Artisan Partners Kaufman will manage a developing world strategy that the firm is targeting to launch in mid-2015. Kaufman will have the flexibility to build a team to assist him in the management of the strategy in a way that will support his unique investment beliefs.

Kaufman has 15 years of industry experience and 8 years of portfolio management experience including the last 5 overseeing a developing world strategy. Kaufman has a bachelor’s degree in English from Colgate University and Master of Business Administration from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. He is a CFA charterholder.

Eric Colson, Artisan’s Chief Executive Officer, says: “The secular development of developing economies and their consumer class continues to be tremendous. Those trends have created strong ongoing demand from sophisticated investors for high quality investment offerings. Lewis has a highly differentiated approach and operates with high degrees of investment freedom. He is a high conviction investor and has a well-defined philosophy. He is a natural fit within our business model. We are excited to have Lewis join our firm and look forward to working with him to develop a strong franchise.”
