Jason Luo joined OMERS Growth Equity in 2019. In his role as a Director, Jason supports the development of investment themes and the origination, evaluation, and execution of investment opportunities.
Prior to joining OMERS, Jason worked at CPP Investments on the Private Equity Secondaries and Co-Investment team, where he focus on the consumer, software, and financial services sectors. Prior to that role, Jason was an investment banker at Houlihan Lokey.
Jason holds an HBA in Business Administration from the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University where he graduated as an Ivey Scholar.
In his spare time, Jason enjoys exploring Toronto’s restaurant scene, traveling to new pockets of the globe, and spending time in the great outdoors.
Jason grew up in Ottawa, Ontario. His favourite book is Death’s End (Remembrance of Earth’s Past) by Liu Cixin and his favourite podcast is Planet Money (he’s a big fan of the short, intelligent breakdown of the economics of our daily lives). His most memorable experience was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with his wife on their honeymoon and watching the sunrise from above the clouds. Jason’s ideal vacation is a mix of cultural experiences and adventure. Somewhere he can eat authentic cuisine, learn regional history, languages and customs, and go on hikes to explore the natural beauty of different geographies (and work off all the food in the process).
