Living our values

“My grandparents had their lives up-ended numerous times through World War II, the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution; every time, they persevered and built their lives anew. A similar story can be told of my parents in their 20s. My family showed me that the courage and the grit to face setbacks head on and come back even stronger are indispensable to long-term success and vitality. Thus, Apax’s value of ‘having impact through insight and tenacity’ is dear to my heart.”
