Since its inception in 1998, Fortress Investment Group has improved financial investment banking in a lot of ways. This became most evident in 2007 during its Initial Public Offering (1PO). At that point, the group became the first large-scale equity firm to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Fortress has spread its roots and can now be found in various sectors, managing assets worth $43 billion while employing 1,750 investors in various fields. Some of their specialties range from hedge funds, private equity to permanent capital vehicles. The New York headquarters employs more than 900 people itself. It has three main managers based in New York and San Francisco.
Fortresses’ asset-based investments through credit funds and private equity aim at generating a sustainable long-term cash flow. That is why they are made up of various assets; capital, real estate, and financial vehicles are some of the most popular. The company has a wealth of experience in financing, pricing, owning and managing both financial as well as physical assets. Fortress does well at appraising various parts of investments ahead of time too. Some of the areas that are taken into consideration are operational, strategic and structural standards. These are systematically analyzed before investments are made.
With over two decades in business, the company has taken charge by managing intricate details of mergers and acquisitions alike. They have developed close links to large players in the industry and understand the art of deal-making with management professionals, corporate board members, and other stakeholders. This great experience also makes Fortress Investment Group a go-to in capital markets. Their team has substantial expertise in getting financing deals over the line either through debt or equity markets.
Fortress Investment Group also has a long and proven track record of managing various companies. This has given the conglomerate firsthand experience and knowledge about various industries. They have employees who worked almost their entire lives in related niches. This is an advantage as time spent in related industries allows them to have substantial institutional knowledge on a global scale.
Fortress Investment Group set new records when they were purchased in 2017. It also became the first to be purchased at such a large scale. Valued at $3.3 billion, Fortress was bought by Soft Bank GROUP Corporation, a Tokyo-based Japanese multinational. However, Fortress continues to operate as an independent entity and founders Randal Nardone and Wes Edens stayed on as principals.
