Living our values

"I have always strived to be part of special teams built around openness, collaboration and togetherness, where the impact of the whole exceeds the sum of its parts. While getting to know the Apax team, the core value “we succeed as one global team” was evident from the start, and the firm's cultural traits matched my personal goals for my ideal team environment perfectly. This deeply-rooted value in the organizational DNA acts as a further force multiplier of our impact as one global team."
