Our culture

Great businesses are built on the back of many great ideas. That is why we’ve built Advent on solid cultural foundations that encourages the open conversations between people at all levels of the firm irrespective of title or background. This respect for others’ viewpoint ensures that differences of opinion are respected and ultimately help drive better collective decisions. Ours has never been a firm of star names or big egos, we recognize that the best partnerships with management are built on trust and mutual respect.



INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE

When you first walk through the doors at Advent, you’re walking into a connected global partnership with a unique collegiate culture based on collaboration, humility and intellectual honesty.

Our firm-wide associate program fosters collaboration and development across our 15 offices and five sectors. Throughout the two-to-three year program, participants will receive continuous training and mentorship by senior team members as they gain exposure to all aspects of the investment process and our portfolio companies.

As a global firm, participants will also have the opportunity to interact with our people and portfolio companies around the world – whether through discussing the diligence of a cross-border deal or attending global associate training and networking events.

Advent is a community built on, and constantly rejuvenated by, diverse people who are ready to challenge our way of doing things. We pride ourselves on the respect we have for each other’s differences and the countless ways in which our firm and our people contribute to the communities in which we operate.

The associate program is an essential part of continuously nurturing this culture and building our most important assets – our people.
