Onex is an investor and asset manager that invests capital on behalf of its shareholders and clients across the globe. Formed in 1984, we have a long track record of creating value for our investors. Onex became a public company in 1987 and is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol ONEX. Onex’ two primary businesses are Private Equity and Credit. In Private Equity, we raise funds from third-party investors, or limited partners, and invest them, along with Onex’ own investing capital, through the funds of our private equity platforms, Onex Partners and ONCAP. Similarly, in Credit, we raise and invest capital across several private credit, public credit and public equity strategies. Our global investors include public and private pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and family offices among others. In addition, through our private wealth platform, we service high net worth investors in Canada.

In total, Onex has $51 billion in assets under management, of which $7.9 billion is Onex’ own investing capital. With offices in Toronto, New York, New Jersey, Boston and London, Onex and its experienced management teams are collectively the largest investors across Onex’ platforms.
