ORION CAPITAL ASIA provides loans to middle market businesses in Asia-Pacific that are owned by both private equity sponsors and local entrepreneurs.
We are based in Singapore and were initially established in 2013 as Olympus Capital Asia Credit. In 2020, the management team executed a buyout and rebranded the platform as Orion Capital Asia.
Thereafter, Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System (“OMERS”), a defined benefit pension plan for municipal employees in the province of Ontario in Canada, became an equity investor in Orion. As at December 31, 2022, OMERS had US$95 billion in net assets.
We have demonstrated a strong investment track record built on direct origination, robust structuring, and prudent underwriting. We have invested more than US$400 million from each of our first two funds, and in aggregate more than US$1.5 billion including co-investors.
In 2021, we were awarded “Best of the Best Midcap Private Debt House” by South Korea’s pension funds and other major institutional investors in the “Best Asset Managers by Korean Investors 2020” awards by The Korea Economic Daily. The award is based on ranking of global managers and not limited to Asian managers.
