Long before Investment Fortress Group started, Peter Briger graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with an MBA. But even before then, Peter had received his Bachelor’s of Arts Degree. With these credentials, he was fit to work at various financial institutions. One such a group that quickly accepted Peter was Goldman Sachs. It is here that Peter Briger made his foundation of a firm understanding of financial investment particularly credit and real estate.
While Briger was working at Goldman Sachs, he got the opportunity to sit on several committees where financial and equity investment matters were discussed at length. Peter later used the knowledge achieved here to make many people stand on their own financially.
After working at Goldman Sachs for fifteen years, a time came when Peter left the firm. He landed at Fortress Investment Group that currently handles over $43.6 billion worth of clients’ assets. This wealth belongs to over 1, 750 organizations and individuals from many parts of the world. In order to handle such wealth from a vast number of people, there must be a proper managerial program. Peter Briger is one of the three principals who take the lead role at Fortress Investment Group. He is also the co-chairman of the group. Peter’s wit and managerial prowess have been proved instrumental to the group.
Peter Briger involves himself on a number of activities that benefit others. For instance, although he has a lot of work at his credit and real estate department at Fortress Investment Group, Peter is also a member of various boards. He is a member of the Caliber Schools, a chain of schools whose aim is to help students pass their examinations on a four-year educational program, and a sits on Tipping Point board. This is a non-profit organization responsible for empowering San Francisco’s low-income families.
Together with others, Briger also joins hands in supporting his former school, Princetown University. This small group of alumina have come together and formed the Princetown University Investment Company that supports several startups in his community. Briger has also given his support to the Central Park Conservancy. Meet Pete Briger: A Titan in the Investment and Finance World
