Our Mission

Onyx Investments is in the business of creating wealth.

We are open to using all tools available to improve potential returns, mitigate downside risks, and preserve liquidity. Onyx works through the full money management spectrum as more so of an art-form, rather than a simple and systematic analysis of dollars and cents.

In doing so, Onyx Investments expects alpha returns, and to establish a long-lasting institution that is far greater than our own individual selves.

Onyx Investments: About

Onyx Investments offers financial planning, asset management, tax preparation, and insurance brokerage services. Onyx was incorporated in 2004, in Illinois, and first began to operate out of a Rogers Park – Chicago apartment with $12,500 in capital and one Dell laptop computer.

Shortly thereafter, Onyx Investments took up office space at 111 West Jackson Boulevard and has remained a Chicago Loop mainstay ever since. Onyx is now headquartered at 141 West Jackson – in the Chicago Board of Trade Building, while also further establishing a presence in New York City.

Onyx Investments is now a multi-million-dollar firm.

Black Onyx

We find Black Onyx to be quite the captivating gem and very much symbolic of our business ideologies. As a stone, Onyx is stable and strong, yet elegant. As a gem, Onyx presents as a translucent piece that does convey an optimistic future.

Onyx Investments integrates its own flair and style within time tested money management principles. As an investor, the company would rather own small pieces, or shares of quality businesses, instead of one mediocre enterprise outright.

Rather than mindless diversification for the sake of diversification, we manage a concentrated portfolio of select firms that dominate their respective niches.

Above all else, we are fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Onyx Investments has leveraged this approach to solidify gains and drive impressive growth through the 2007 housing bust, COVID-19 pandemic, and Russia-Ukraine war.

In many respects, Onyx Investments is Berkshire Hathaway 2.0.

Building the Institution

Onyx Investments is committed to building institutional wealth for its stakeholders – that will stand through the test of time. As an institution, we cultivate real wealth that is far beyond the mere dollars and cents of the stock market tickers.

We work our financial plans to turn houses into homes, put children through college, and bankroll retirement experiences. We are much more than a money manager.

This is a movement.

    I need to update these to include a portfolio from 2023.

    It may also look better to show the most recent portfolio first and then back date from there on the historical chart.

    I attached a screenshot of how things looked on Sept 1, 2023.

    I will use this information to show the expansion of our corporate portfolio.
