Investment management firm Artisan Partners has hired three senior managers from Eaton Vance to launch an autonomous emerging markets investment franchise.
Michael Cirami, Michael O’Brien, and Sarah Orvin have all joined the firm and plan to launch the initial strategies during the first half of 2022, Artisan says.
Cirami joins as managing director and lead portfolio manager. He has spent the last 18 years at Eaton Vance where he was co-director of emerging markets and a portfolio manager on the firm’s emerging markets team. O’Brien joins as managing director and head of global trading for the emerging markets debt strategies that the firm plans to launch. O’Brien has spent the last 16 years at Eaton Vance as director of emerging markets trading and more recently a co-director of emerging markets. Orvin joins as portfolio manager and one of the three founding members of the team. She previously served as portfolio manager on the emerging markets team at Eaton Vance.
“We are pleased to have Mike, Mike and Sarah join our firm,” says Eric Colson, CEO of Artisan Partners. “They are a great fit for Artisan as we continue to bolster our investment capabilities into new asset classes, while staying committed to talent-driven, high value-added investment management. We look forward to working with them to further build the team and launch their initial strategies.”
