Apax Partners offered strong support to Sir David Walker in his review of the private equity industry in 2007.  In light of the review's findings, which identified a need for enhanced transparency and accountability within the industry, we are keen to increase the understanding of Apax Partners in particular and the private equity industry in general.

To that end, we published our first annual report in 2008 and, in addition, four of our UK portfolio companies are complying with the enhanced reporting requirements set out in Sir David Walker's Guidelines for Disclosure and Transparency in Private Equity: New Look, Top Right Group, Trader Media Group and Travelex.
