Our experience as owners and operators enables us to effectively enhance cash flows, increase the value of our

investments and produce solid long-term returns.


Onex's values and business strategies have remained constant in the areas that matter since its inception. We believe that growth and success are nurtured by developing long-term investment projects in both traditional and new sectors and by building modern infrastructure within a digital world. Our solid foundations were built by welding Iraqi talent and capabilities with global opportunities.

Investments into innovation and advanced technologies combined with efficient management and operations enable Onex companies to offer highly competitive services that are constantly honed and updated to deliver value to our people while also often inspiring others and facilitating a maturing of the market as a whole.


We seek out possibilities and opportunities to develop companies, commerce, and services not only in fast-developing and high-potential fields, but also in areas that may be overlooked or perceived as too risky. Our priority is to create value at the companies in which we invest. We remain undaunted by the prospect of entering new markets and new – often synergetic – fields. When considering new business, we primarily target markets with high retail potential and those with rapidly developing infrastructure.


We prefer to act as the majority owner, but we are also keen to work with partners espousing a business philosophy that dovetails with our own. We have built and will continue to shape Onex as a portfolio of companies where sectoral and geographical diversification offers stability and opportunities for vertical integration.
