Living our values

As a lifelong Arsenal fan – choosing “right over easy” is a decision I need to make every day. At Apax - being surrounded by like-minded people has encouraged me to not only leave no stone unturned when it comes to my role at Apax, but also keep waking up at the crack of dawn to watch Arsenal lose on a cold Saturday at Stoke.

Paul's Story

Paul’s passion for investing started while in middle-school when he managed a fictitious portfolio of stocks. Gamifying pattern recognition and trend analysis allowed Paul to create a story out of a set of numbers. This – tied with his excitement for technological innovation led him to Apax Digital where he helps the team think critically about potential investment opportunities in some of the world's most disruptive businesses.
