Singapore’s GIC Private Limited and Onex Corporation led a consortium of existing and new co-investors in committing to invest US$ 1 billion in Convex Group Limited, a specialty insurer and reinsurer focused on complex risks. The capital raise includes more than US$ 300 million from the Onex Group, including US$ 200 million from Onex Partners V. This capital raise is subject to customary regulatory approvals.
