The Canadian Angel Investor Connection
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 total, Onex has $51 billion in assets under management, of which $7.8 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.
Crucial to our long-term success is the alignment of interests between our team, shareholders and clients. Members of our management team have a significant long-term ownership in Onex shares and invest meaningfully in our funds. We believe this alignment creates stronger relationships with both clients and shareholders. In addition to owning approximately 13 million of Onex’ outstanding shares, the Onex team has a total investment in our private equity, private credit and public strategies at market value of approximately $1.3 billion.
Our culture is guided by our strong commitment to accountability, intellectual honesty and respect for all our partners and stakeholders. Onex was formed on principles of entrepreneurialism and responsible investing and our team is united in recognizing the value of collaboration, diversity of perspective and background, and an inclusive environment. 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 the firm’s CEO, Bobby Le Blanc, and our Founder and Chairman, Gerry Schwartz, as well as experienced leaders at each of our businesses.
