It’s not easy to start a business. But it can be even more challenging if you don’t know what you’re doing. For many entrepreneurs, the process of creating and running their own company is daunting enough without adding in all the complexities that come with managing an investment fund or other asset management firm. Luckily for them, companies like Fortress Investment Group (NYSE: FIG) specialize in providing investment services to companies looking to break into emerging markets around the world!
Fortress Investments Group has been one of the top-performing firms in private equity returns over five years in New York. As well as being ranked number 4 out of all equity funds by return on assets over three years! They also have an impressive international presence with offices in the UK, Asia, and Australia.
In addition to this, they have been ranked number one on Institutional Investor’s All-Asia Executive Team rankings for three years running! Fortress Investment Group was founded in 1998 by Randal Nardone, Wes Edens, and Rob Kauffman. It is a New York-based firm and one of the leading private equity real estate investment trusts (REITs) globally.
They invest on behalf of their shareholders and third-party investors across various industries, including media, financial services, insurance, healthcare, and transportation. They currently have over $42 billion worth of assets under management! And have been ranked as the top-performing global asset manager in 2013 by Institutional Investor!
They are also the only global alternative asset manager to make Fortune magazine’s prestigious “100 Best Companies to Work For” list every year since 2007! As well as being recognized by Ethisphere Institute, an independent center of research promoting best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, and anti-corruption. And they have received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, an annual list of America’s top companies that have a proven record in workplace equality for LGBT employees.
Fortress Investment Group employees can enjoy free luxury car service to and from work year-round courtesy of the firm! Plus, they also offer comprehensive health benefits, including medical, dental, and vision coverage, as well as a generous 401(k) and a company-matched charitable contribution fund.
If you’re looking for flexible work hours or an alternative working schedule because of, say, childcare responsibilities, then Fortress Investment Group might be the right fit! They recently launched their new program to encourage women and employees from other underrepresented backgrounds such as minorities and those with disabilities to apply for their open positions in New York.
