Fortress Investment Group is a multinational organization that operates in the United States and other countries around the world. The entity has been working the in the wealth management industry, which is a sector under the large volatile and risky financial industry that comprises of some of the world leading investment groups around the world. However, the company has been able to cut its market niche by offering quality services to the customers that are otherwise used to low-quality services as provided by other wealth managers in the industry. The vision of Fortress is to provide customers with practical solutions that will change their perception in the investment industry.
Randal Nardone, who is the founder of Fortress Investment Group emerged from other asset management organizations in the early 1990s. He had gathered essential knowledge and the necessary expertise in the asset and wealth management industry. However, he was not impressed by how organizations were rendering services to their customers. He was, therefore, having an idea of starting an entity in the same industry that would offer high-class services, such that the customers visiting the institution will be satisfied and they would wish to come back for more ideas on investment.
To implement his ideas, Nardone had to look for experts in various fields who would spearhead the start of an organization that was geared to offering quality services than there before. One of the people he brought was Wes Edens, an experienced guru in the field of financial analysis and asset management. The second piece of the puzzle that has since proved to be a masterstroke is the incorporation of Peter Briger, a well-known economic analysis which has significant knowledge in asset management and investment in alternative assets.
Through the leadership of the three, Randal Nardone, Wes Edens, and Peter Briger, Fortress Investment Group has reached significant heights that other organizations are struggling to comprehend. It is through leadership that Fortress Investment has been able to be the world leader in customer service delivery, number of customers seeking investment consultancy from the organization, and the tremendous asset base that characterize Fortress Investment Group.
