Founded in 1984, Onex is one of the oldest and most successful private equity firms. Today, we have approximately
$31 billion of assets under management, including Onex’ proprietary capital of $6.4 billion.

Through Onex Partners and ONCAP private equity funds, we acquire and build high-quality businesses in partnership with talented management teams. Through Onex Credit, we invest in non-investment grade debt through credit funds and collateralized loan obligations.

Onex invests its capital together with capital from investors from around the world, including public and private pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, banks, 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. We do not raise pools of capital in which we are not an investor.
