Private equity is a long-term business, and depends on the trust it receives from investors, business owners and management teams. Our values are crucial in everything we do.

We apply our values equally wherever we operate. They inform our interactions with employees, suppliers and our local communities, as well as the Apax Funds’ investors and portfolio companies.

Apax Funds do not invest in companies involved in firearms, pornography or that derive significant revenues from the production or sale of tobacco.

We are committed to working with the industry on corporate responsibility issues including environmental, social and governance best practice, as well as raising the standard of transparency and disclosure to all our stakeholders. As such, we were engaged from the earliest stages in the development of the Walker Guidelines on Transparency and Disclosure in the UK, and are involved with industry associations in other countries in their creation of similar codes.

We are proud signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and to the Private Equity Growth Capital Council’s Guidelines for Responsible Investment.

Apax Partners is also a member of Level 20, whose aim is to inspire women to join and succeed in the private equity industry and deliver greater representation for women at all levels of the industry.
