Founded in 1984, Onex manages and invests capital in its private equity and credit platforms on behalf of investors from around the world.  In total, we have approximately $31 billion of assets under management, including Onex’ $6.6 billion of shareholder capital.

Onex invests through its two private equity platforms, Onex Partners for larger transactions and ONCAP for middle market and smaller transactions, and Onex Credit, which manages primarily non-investment grade debt through collateralized loan obligations, private debt and other credit strategies.

Onex invests and manages shareholder capital together with capital from investors from around the world, including public and private pension funds, sovereign wealth funds,  insurance companies and family offices. Onex earns management fees on nearly $21 billion of assets under management and has the opportunity to share in the profits of its investors through carried interest and incentive fee participation. This provides Onex enhanced returns from its investment activities.
