Living our values

"Fortunate enough to be part of a team that won a German under 18 basketball championship during my high school days, I experienced the power of teamwork, commitment and dedication at an early age. Having been an average athlete, this equally taught me the value of diligence and hard work, but it is our “right over easy” value, which resonates most. Being trusted by investors with responsibility for their capital makes me proud to work for an organisation with a strong moral compass."

Patrick's Story

Patrick joined Apax in 2015 as the first employee in the Listed Private Equity team. As one of his first tasks, he was involved in AGA’s listing on the London Stock Exchange. From day one, Patrick has been excited about Apax’s entrepreneurial spirit and the chance to be an early part of the firm’s credit investing. Having always been a curious investor, it is the interaction with a diverse pool of colleagues and their strong sector experience that Patrick enjoys especially.
