Talent at the Center

Aptigon takes the long view on the career development of its team members. At its launch, the business established dedicated roles and resources to manage the growth, training, and career progression of its investment professionals. Each stage of professional development is designed to foster a collaborative environment that encourages mentorship, cross-training, and learning.
