Peter Briger Taking Fortress Investment Group to Greater Heights with his Skills and Efforts

Making investments as an enterprise at the right time is equally important to achieve success in the long-run. There are investment management companies that can help you do that. One of the companies in the United States that have achieved considerable success in the past couple of decades helping individuals, as well as corporations, manage their assets and investments is Fortress Investment Group. With the experience of nearly two decades backing the company, Fortress Investment Group is amongst the fastest growing financial services providers in the world currently. The company manages assets of over $50 billion, which is commendable considering there are many other rivals in the investment management forte before the arrival of Fortress Investment Group.

Peter Briger currently serves as the Principal and is also the co-chairman of the company’s Board of Directors. He joined the company after working with Goldman Sachs for one and a half decade. While he joined Fortress Investment Group as a member of their management committee, he grew up in ranks and currently oversees the company’s credit business. He works along with a strong team of 300 employees who report him directly. Peter Briger has studied Bachelor of Arts at Princeton University and then went on to earn his MBA degree from the Wharton School of Business. Since he started working in the financial industry right after he left college, he has been able to learn investment skills from the best minds in the industry. Peter Briger has not just been successful in his career but also takes his social duty seriously. He is part of many non-profit organizations and supports them financially and with his time.

One of the main areas that he focuses on is the education sector so that he could provide better opportunities to those who want to move forward in their careers. One of the reasons why students want to join Princeton University is because of the opportunities that students are provided in the college. Peter Briger funds the ‘Princeton Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow’ that offers monetary and other assistance to students who have some great creative ideas and want those ideas to become a reality. Using the fund, the college was able to create an incubator that Princeton teams can rent to start their venture. Till date, they have already funded 25 successful start-ups. It helps Peter Briger find new investment opportunities for its company Fortress Investment Group and also provides an opportunity to students to get the support of the top investment companies in the country.
