New York has been the birthplace of many great corporations over the years, especially in the financial industry. Fortress Investment Group is a leading alternative investment company that manages billions of dollars of assets for their investors worldwide. Fortress Investment was founded by three men back in 1998, all of which were experts in the financial industry. At first, Fortress Investment was a private company that specialized in alternative investing methods throughout the region, until Peter Briger joined the company and made moves for becoming public.

Fortress Investment Group has locations across the United States as well as London, Singapore, and Shanghai and they are specialists in operations management, asset investing, capital markets, and industry knowledge. Fortress Investment Group also boasts experience in mergers and acquisitions. Over the past 20 years, the company has built up relations all over the world with investors through their international relations department, which was recently directed by Gareth Henry. Gareth is an investing expert that worked out of the London office that managed to build dozens of new partnerships for the company during his time at the company.
As of 2017, Fortress Investment Group was worth more than 2 billion dollars on the market with a total amount of assets ranging above 70 billion dollars managed for global entities. Despite this, Fortress Investment doesn’t have or need a huge amount of employees and currently sits just under 1000 total staffing throughout all of their locations. It hasn’t hurt their position any, but Fortress was also sold off last year for over 3 billion dollars to SoftBank. It was a deal that was made with the ground that nothing at the company would actually change, leaving employees and management in their positions.
