Private Equity

Onex has approximately $22 billion of private equity assets under management, of which $5.9 billion is Onex’ own investing capital.

Investments in private equity are primarily made through Onex’ two main platforms: Onex Partners for middle-market and larger transactions and ONCAP for middle-market and smaller transactions. Onex’ private equity funds acquire and build high-quality businesses in partnership with talented management teams and focus on execution theses rather than macro-economic or industry trends. Each platform follows a disciplined, investment process with vertical specialization where the team has considerable industry expertise, a long track record of success and strong network of relationships. This in turn enables the teams to take a targeted approach with investment opportunities, creates a competitive informational advantage and helps shape their go-to-market strategy.

Onex has raised nine private equity funds to date. The firm is currently investing through Onex Partners V, a $7.15 billion fund, and ONCAP IV, a $1.1 billion fund. Since inception, Onex has generated a Gross MOC of 2.4 times and a 27% Gross IRR on realized, substantially realized and publicly traded private equity investments.

Onex has formed Onex Transportation Partners, a new platform focused on investing in transportation-related assets used for land, air, marine and industrial applications. The strategy will focus on investments involving hard assets with long lives, contractual cashflows and an element of inflation protection. We anticipate it will appeal to infrastructure and cash yield-oriented investors looking to rebalance into the physical economy. The launch of this platform is aligned with Onex’ focus of building out new businesses that leverage our sector expertise and add value to our growing asset management business. To learn more, contact
