What is the company known for?
In 2008, Fortress Investment Group invested in the Greek government’s debt in a distressed debt transaction as part of the infamous restructuring. Since then, Fortress’s investments in Greece’s debt have helped re-gain its place among the world’s largest investors, focusing their attention on companies in distress.
One of the major catalysts for the recovery of Greece’s debt is the change in the global economic climate following the financial crisis of 2008. The rest of the world has suffered from stagnant growth and in many cases, a reversion back to more traditional credit based strategies. This demand for “risk-on” investment opportunities in the financial markets has provided a boon for companies that employ Fortress’s innovative business model.
Fortress Investment Group’s activities in EMEA focus on primary and secondary market transactions including direct and co-investments across private credit, real assets, infrastructure and funds and hedge funds. Since 2014, the firm’s Global Alpha Strategies business has focused on offering clients direct access to hedge fund strategies.
In EMEA, the firm manages two sub-advisory mandates and serves as a sub-adviser to certain primary funds and certain hedge fund strategies. Fortress’s investment Group Global Alpha Strategies business in North America focuses on global investment strategies across private equity and credit, real assets, infrastructure and fund strategies.
