Living our values

“'We learn, adapt, and grow' is the Apax value that resonates with me most deeply. A teacher I was close to once told me to think of learning like running up a curved hill. You always want to be moving up the slope, but never reach the top, else you will tumble back down. I take this approach to heart in all aspects of my life and strive to continuously learn from everyone I interact with.”

Ashwin's Story

Ashwin is energised by the challenge of investing and the entrepreneurialism involved with finding and supporting investments. His curiosity and determination were instilled in him by his parents, first generation immigrants to the US, who taught him the importance of hard work and setting ambitious goals. Ashwin was attracted to Apax by the Firm’s “hands on” approach to supporting the portfolio, highly collaborative culture and focus on backing leading branded consumer businesses with world-class management teams.
