Born and raised in Manhatten, Jeffry received his degree at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He began his career in New York working for a number of prestigous financial firms including Alex Brown, Merrill Lynch, and Smith Barney. As his experience grew, Jeffry made a name for himself through his knowledge of alternative investment strategies and his deep relationships with his clients.

In 2002, Jeffry took a position at Paradigm Global Advisors, a fund of funds, where he managed the company’s US and international efforts in their markting and structuring division. While there, Jeffry developed an important skill, the ability to analyze managers. Five years later, Jeffry decided to meld his experience in the alternative investment space and his dedication to his clients into a new venture. He started his own company to assist family offices and other institutional investors in identifying top-tier sponsors.

While running his own firm, Jeffry cultivated deep relationships with a number of companies. One of these companies was Virtus Real Estate.Armed with his due diligence knowledge, Jeffry decided that this was the type of organization with whom he wanted to work. Virtus is a private equity real estate firm with a long history and ability to take advantage of the current economic environment. Jeffry recently joined Virtus as their Director of Capital Development. There, he continues to innovate and refine his expertise in alternative investment strategies.

Outside of his professional career, Jeffry Schneider has also shown strength and single-mindedness in other areas of his life. An example of this is his participation in the New Zealand Ironman Triathlon, an annual race known for its grueling length and adverse race conditions. He has also participated in several qualifying events since 2004, such as the half-Ironman at St. Croix in 2004, the half-Ironman at Clairmont, FL in 2005, and the half-Ironman in Santa Rosa, CA in 2007. In addition, Jeffrey ran the New York City Marathon in 2005, and the 3M half-marathon in Austin in 2008.

Jeffry is also an active member of his community. He is very involved in Camp Honey Creek’s Summer Dream program. This program affords opportunities for underprivileged or disabled children to attend an enriching and fun-filled summer camp experience normally outside their reach. Jeffry also supports Trinity Episcopal School of Austin, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, as well as several other non-profit organizations.

Onyx Capital

Jeffry Schneider is a highly successful professional in the securities and investment banking industry. After several years with other capital management firms, Jeffry Schneider started his own firm, Onyx Capital, in 2006.   Onyx Capital provides alternative investing opportunities for private clients and small institutions.

Jeffry Schneider created Onyx Capital in response to the high level of interest in alternative investments emanating from high net-worth households and small firm and institutional investors.  Despite the growth in allocations to hedge funds, private equity, real estate, and other alternative investments, private clients and smaller institutions have not had adequate assistance in identifying and investing in top-tier offerings. Jeffry Schneider secured a place for just that niche.

As founder and principal of Onyx Capital, Jeffry Schneider and his team help bring investors and sponsors together in the complex alternative investment space. Jeffry Schneider’s firm also offers sponsors a broad array of services, supporting their sales and marketing efforts as well as their compliance and operational needs.
