Fortress Investment Group, Setting the Trend in Global Asset Management

Fortress Investment Group is a New York-based global asset management firm. The company was established in 1998 as a private equity firm. Since its inception, the company has developed to become a market leader in asset management. Following a sustained impressive performance, Fortress Investment Group made history as the first large private equity firm to go public on the New York Stock Exchange market in 2007. Currently, the firm manages in excess of $70.2 billion in hedge funds, private equity, credit funds, and alternative assets.

As an expert investment manager, Fortress Investment Group has developed competency in core investment areas including mergers and acquisitions of corporate organizations, management of operations, sector-specific understanding of companies and institutions, capital markets, and asset-based investing.

Fortress Investment Group is currently one of the best performing investment managers. Since the 2007 IPO, the company has ambitiously embarked on building its investment vehicles. The vehicles include the Fortress Real Estate Opportunities Funds I and II, the Credit Opportunities Funds I through IV, the Fortress Investment Fund V, the Fortress MSR Opportunities Funds I and II, the Intellectual Property Fund, the Asset-Based Income Fund, and the Worldwide Transportation and Infrastructure Fund.

Following the impressive performance, Soft Bank offered to acquire Fortress Investment Group at a price of $3.3 billion. The move provided Fortress with an opportunity to join forces with a like-minded corporation to upscale its global business interests. Softbank is a Japan-based company which manages a global portfolio in Internet services, smart robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, clean-energy technology, and telecommunications.

After the deal, Fortress Group continued to operate as an independent entity. It retained all its structures including its employees and managers. Wes Edens, Randal Nardone, and Peter Briger remained as the principals.

Today Fortress Group continues to build its team of professionals. The company has a history of hiring the best brains to advance its business expertise. Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC, a subsidiary of Fortress Group, is currently hiring an asset analyst.
