ORIX USA’s Strategic Solutions Group focuses on providing clients with smart, tax-oriented, structural solutions to deploy capital efficiently on an after-tax basis. The Strategic Solutions Group works closely with ORIX USA Group’s numerous businesses and subsidiaries to originate opportunities.



ORIX USA continually seeks new ways to invest its balance sheet and provide capital solutions to its clients, and we have a history of exploring and closing transformative, strategic investments. With this in mind, we are actively evaluating new partnerships, joint ventures, acquisitions, and other investment opportunities. We are also further developing our asset management capabilities to enhance our product offerings to clients. And to further augment our ability to source and originate new investments, we are looking to hire best-in-class new business professionals, as well as to partner with established groups to create joint ventures in niche asset classes. At ORIX, we will pursue opportunistic acquisitions to expand our portfolio or to acquire skills and talent.  Some areas of strategic interest to us include:

  • Specialty Finance
  • Asset Management
  • Distressed/Dislocated Asset Classes
  • Special Situations
  • Private Equity
  • Insurance
