On Wednesday, October 5th, four representatives from Artisan Partners, a publicly traded asset management firm located in Milwaukee, visited the AIM program. The main purpose of their visit was to introduce the AIM program students to ART, which is shorthand for the Artisan RotationalProgram.

Anne Wiesman (AIM Class of 2015), Management Reporting/Financial Planning & Analysis, and Patrick Sanchez (AIM Class of 2016), member of the ART Program, were joined by Carl Lotin and Ryan Wood, who are also members of the Artisan Rotational Program.

The ART program provides a unique view of Artisan Partners with three distinct rotations across different business teams and locations, including Milwaukee and one of their other principal offices. This program provides participants with the opportunity to collaborate with leaders across the firm, including investment professionals, sales and marketing professionals and senior management.

Members of the ARP program are immersed in the firm’s sales and marketing environment where they experience firsthand Artisan Partners’ differentiated approach to business development. As the members of the team pointed out, throughout the program, new employees are supported with customized mentoring, training and career development. Following successful completion of the ART program, there is a strong likelihood that associates will be offered a full-time position on one of Artisan Partners’ investment sales teams.

Dr. David Krause, AIM program director commented, “Artisan offers a very interesting entry into the asset management industry. We continue to see the importance of strong client-facing teams. I think that Patrick and the other guests did a great job explaining the program and emphasizing the importance of strong marketing and financial skills. We have always sought ways to work more closely with Artisan and I believe that the ART program is a great way to link our students with their needs.”
