Peter Briger, and strength, are synonymous…. According to an article I found on cruncbase -dealstreetasia- his company “Fortress Investment Group” is strong as well. This same article claimed that “Fortress Investment Group” had done something no other U.S. private equity firm has done before. In 2017, after selling to a Japanese Company named, “Softbank”, they delisted. This means that “Fortress Investment Group” is making ripples, and the world is starting to pay attention. Another article that I found courtesy of crunchase.com, refers to Peter Briger, and his company “as a force of innovation”. Patch.com boldly claims that since it’s very first years of business, which began in 1998, they have always been a trendsetter.
“Fortress Financial Group” refer to two trends that they have set in particular. The first happened in 2007 when the business became the first alternative investment firm to go public. The second thing happened which is mentioned in the aforementioned paragraph. When a company becomes the first to do something, it demands respect and attention… Especially, if that first move happens to be successful, and lucrative in the decades to come. Peter Briger worked for 15 years at Goldman Sachs, including as a partner, according to patch.com Also the article states that he joined “Fortress” in 2002, and is in charge of their credit division.
This means that he is in charge of both their credit, and real estate business. Patch.com covers other interesting facts about the leader of “Fortress Credit.” He is a member of the Forbes 400, which keeps tabs on global business professionals. Patch.com also notes his rather extensive background of being on a membership on the Asian Management, while working for Goldman Sachs. Also, he worked for Global Control and Compliance, and also worked within Japanese Executive Committees. It seems that Peter Briger plans ahead very well… Patch.com believes that Peter Briger’s focused work in Asia contributed to a very prominent Japanese Banking Conglomerate (Softbank). and their purchase of Fortress in 2017. I believe they are right.
