A pillar of our culture is our commitment to financial alignment. We do not raise pools of capital in which we are not a significant investor. In addition to owning approximately 16 million of Onex’ outstanding shares, the Onex team also has approximately $390 million, $215 million and $50 million invested in our private equity, credit and wealth management platforms, respectively.
If we won’t invest in it, we won’t ask you to do so.
Our team takes an entrepreneurial approach to investing. We seek to work with talented chief executives who want to grow their businesses and embrace the change necessary to make it happen.
Onex is led by an Executive Committee comprised of the firm’s founder and CEO, Gerry Schwartz, and four Senior Managing Directors. Collectively, these executives have more than 160 years of investing experience and have worked at Onex for an average of 29 years. Onex’ stability results from its ownership culture, rigorous recruiting standards and highly collegial environment.
