Living our values

"I was raised in Australia with four brothers and sisters. We were often on the move; I was schooled on three continents before reaching university. All of us married people from different nations and have spread out across the globe, but we remain close (although our children have wildly different accents!). Perhaps that is why “We succeed as one global team” resonates with me, and why I was so drawn to the diversity of the Global Impact team."



Chris' Story

Chris was drawn to impact investing because it allows him to combine his private equity skill-set with his personal values, something which gives him energy and inspiration. He joined Apax because of the firm’s authenticity in the impact sphere and the intellectual and collaborative vibrancy of its culture.
