Living our values

"The day he started working, my grandfather started contributing a third of his income to a charitable trust. Over the years, I saw the family go through numerous ups and downs but his commitment remained unwavering.  My parents instilled in me early on the value of long-lasting relationships and not making life zero-sum.  So, while all the Apax values strongly resonate with me, “we choose right over easy” hits home the most."
