Everything about alternative investments is risky. The stakes are not typically well protected, and only individuals with fire for risk-taking make it. It may be its highly profitable if you make it. Fortress Investment Group was founded on a vision to make it big in the industry. It specializes in hedge funds, private equity, real estate, managed futures and others.Its founders had an out of the norm vision which included trading publicly. Trading publicly has never been every private companies dream because it is often problematic. A public listing ensures that a company reports regularly and extensively. For this reason, many private holdings resist the urge. Fortress Investment Group made that choice and a decade later it’s still going strong. The fear of failing was crippling but not deterrent, and they finally made it big. Their success today is so phenomenal and are now trendsetters as other alternative investment groups follow suit in the public listings.
A company that grows is a company that has weathered storms gracefully. Fortress Investment Group had seen better days from its humble beginnings ten years ago. It has grown from a million dollar industry to handling billions. Its achievements do not end there as it was the first company opening its doors to the public who knew little of alternative investments and educating them to the moguls they are today. It is not to say that the company not only grows money but people as well.While many companies sell out to more prominent corporations as a result of losses, it is a different case for this shining star. When a decision was approved to sell it to Japan’s Softbank, it was on a winning streak, not a losing one. The company has made nothing but right choices since its inception and promised to continue on that path even as it operates independently under Softbank.
