The History of Fortress Investment Group

Wes Edens has always been one to do things his own way but is this what led to him being the head honcho of Fortress Investment Group in New York? Well, he thinks it might be a small part of it. He was born and raised in the suburbs of Helena and tried his best to be one of the top students in his class.

That’s why it came as no surprise to anyone when he was in the top ten of his high school class. As he left the high school life behind, he knew he had to find the perfect college for him but for the life of him, the co founder of Fortress Investment Group could not decide which one he wanted to matriculate at.

So he flipped a coin and when it landed on Oregon State, he opted to go there in the fall. He first got there in the early 80’s and knew he had to figure out what he was going to do with the rest of his life.

So he tried to figure out what he was most passionate about in an effort to select a major. It was not long before he settled on finance and this is when he declared it such. When he was done with college, he decided to open his own company and was not sure what to call it at first. Go Here for related Information.

He soon settled on the name Fortress Investment Group and was happy with this choice. So he moved to New York to find the right office space for it and it was not long before he found a good location on park avenue. He has now been the boss man at Fortress Investment Group for more two decades and hopes to lead them to a brighter tomorrow.
