Living our values

“It was abundantly clear, even before I started with Apax, that the firm values everyone’s perspectives, no matter experience or seniority. Being in a team environment that encourages its individual members to freely express their points of view leads to a scenario where the sum is truly greater than its parts. Apax’s thoughtful approach to investing is personally empowering and part of what makes this organization special.”
