Living our values

"Through varied personal and professional experiences, I have learnt that change is the only constant in life. When asthma bogged me down as a badminton player, I learnt that changing my style could help to avoid (at least partially) long rallies in the game. I went through another transition during my switch from an investment banker with Macquarie to an investor with Apax. That is why our value of learning and growth resonates strongly with me."

Gautam's Story

Gautam enjoys the holistic nature of the experience that being a private equity investor at Apax offers, which is as much about persuading and taking entrepreneurs through transformational journeys, as it is about applying sound business principles and judgements in making investment and exit recommendations. Gautam is a Yoga practitioner and is currently training to compete in the badminton veterans category.
