Legends: Fortress Investment Group
Everyone loves an Origin Story
Fortress Investment Group kicked off its campaign; in the year of 1998. Fortress Investment Group was the first of their kind, as they embarked on the quest to become the very first Investment Firm that deals with multiple opportunities for investment. So you don’t find yourself stuck with a limited amount of options; true pioneers in their world. Despite this huge risk of treading new waters; they led an impressive 10 year run of Non-Stop Improvement, and are still going strong today. Although they have been bought out by SoftBank for 3.3 billion USD: the SoftBank Group Corporation is a Japanese Multinational. Although this corporation bought Fortress, Fortress continues to operate as an independent entity and currently has headquarters in New York. Not only were they unique, but they were also the first alternative manager to go public. Fortress Investment Group continues in front of the alternative investment field. They managed to consistently stay in front year after year; after many other firms decided to follow the same footsteps.
Currently, Fortress Investment Group is divided into three principal categories: credit, private equity, and the Permanent Capital Vehicles Division. With it’s Credit Division beginning in 2002, they are involved with numerous different funds. Investing is a universal language, which is why their business model was successful on a tremendous scale. The Private-Equity division focuses on cash flow generation from control-oriented investments in the Caribbean, North America, and Western Europe. The capital Vehicles Division is mainly made up of five publicly traded Permanent Capital Vehicles: New Residential Investment Corp., Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC, New Senior Investment Group, New Media Investment Group, and EuroCastle Investment Limited.
The story of FIG is inspiring, captivating, and educational. After learning more about the group; they have changed my perspective on investment drastically. I will start to make different decisions strategically when it comes to my finances, thus prospectively changing my point of view. Perspective is something that should be kept consistent, as our perspective changes daily. Over the years they evolved, also showing me the concept of breaking down one big goal into multiple small goals. With constant improvement and innovations; which (in my opinion) are representing their small breakdowns from the ultimate goal. Learning different strategies from people that have made massive success can be shown to help you.
