Peter Briger is the Principal & Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Fortress Investment Group, an investment management firm. Elected in 2009, Peter Briger brought over fifteen years of experience from Goldman, Sachs & Co, earning his way as a partner to the firm. Much of this experience would not be pertinent without his pristine academic stature. Briger was a graduate of Princeton University, obtaining his B.A., but also went on to obtain his M.B.A from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, the top business program in the United States.
There are several projects, Peter Briger participates beyond the Fortress Investment group, including his service on the board of the Tipping Point. The Tipping Point is a non-profit organization that serves low-income families in San Francisco. In addition to serving on the board for this organization, he also serves on the board of Caliber Schools, a collection of charter schools with the purpose of preparing students to be competitive for acceptance into four-year colleges and beyond.
As the Principal of an investment group, Peter Briger must tackle many new advances in the industry. One of the most well known is cryptocurrency, a new form of currency that has many experts choosing sides. However, the company’s debut into the markets as an IPO, lead to their strategic rise in wealth and claim to the title of ‘King of Debt.’ By buying low and selling high, Briger has been able to fortify his own wealth, along with the continued rise of the company. Unfortunately, a loss of more than 74% in stock, the company’s venture into cryptocurrency may be what it needs.
There’s no need for Fortress Capital to worry, though. With Peter Briger by their side—the same man who raised $4.7 billion for a new fund called Fortress Credit Opportunities Fund IV—the company will continue to prosper as one of the most lucrative firms in the United State. In addition to this, the company also holds liquid assets and private equity.
