Living our values

"I have always had an insatiable curiosity about the world – my early childhood ambitions ranged from marine biologist to classicist to astronomer. Whilst I eventually settled on the slightly more mundane ‘investment professional’, I am grateful to have experienced a contrast of professions and sectors, including a stint in medicine, and I enjoy the challenge of continuing to learn every day at Apax. For this reason, “We learn, adapt and grow” is the value that resonates the most."

She enjoys the exposure to all aspects of investing, from drafting the initial investment thesis to working side-by-side with talented management teams, and is motivated by investing in companies that are improving healthcare across the world.
