The Investor Relations ('IR') team places significant emphasis
on three key areas: investor communication, relationship
development and content improvement. The primary principle applied
across the three areas is to be transparent, by providing detailed
and frequent information through formal and informal communication
The IR team advise Apax Funds on communications with our
investors. This includes quarterly reports and activity updates on
significant events such as new investments or exits of existing
portfolio companies. Formal reporting is sent directly to investors
and there is also a secure Extranet providing online access to
financial, legal and reporting information for investors.
In addition to the above, the funds administration team provides
quarterly capital statements to investors and audited financial
statements for the Apax Fund Partnerships and can assist in
answering more technical and accounting queries from investors. A
specialist tax team is also available to assist in the provision of
tax reporting information.
The IR team manages a thorough relationship development
programme ensuring investors receive relevant updates as well as
access to senior investment professionals across the firm.
The IR team is keen to develop long-serving relationships with
investors and seeks to understand through these relationships what
investors are looking for, how best to deliver this, and make
ongoing proposals to investors as appropriate.
