The Apax Values

Apax has a distinct culture with four values that guide decision-making.

These values help the Firm make the right choices by seeking to put the interests of investors at the centre of decisions, to encourage collaboration between teams and offices, to motivate everyone to be entrepreneurial and creative, and to create a culture of continuous improvement.

The Apax values aim to inform investors, management teams, employees and other stakeholders what the Firm stands for, and explains some of its longevity as an institution.
