A look at real estate and credit business guru, Peter Briger

Peter Briger has been an instrumental figure at Fortress for close to two decades now. He joined the company during its early years and since then has contributed immensely to its success. Peter joined the alternative investment firm after one and a half decade of dealing with debt securities and real estate at Goldman Sachs. Hence he had a lot of knowledge and experience to bring to the Fortress table.

Thanks to his vast experience in dealing with real estate and illiquid investments, Peter Briger has been an invaluable asset to Fortress since day one. For instance, a few months after joining the company as principal, he successfully helped raise over $4 billion for a Fortress fund.

His prowess in illiquid investments is also unmatched as he has helped raise millions in revenue by investing in properties and assets considered useless by most investors, and then later refurbishing and selling them at a profitable price. This is an area that most business people wouldn’t dare venture in due to the high risks involved, but he has been courageously venturing in these murky waters over the years, making him the unspoken king of debt in the finance arena.

Thanks to his unique business skills, Peter Briger is living large and is among one of the world billionaires with a worth of over $2.3 billion.

 Peter Briger and the community

Unlike most affluent individuals, Peter Briger understands the essence of the society in his success, and always goes the extra mile to empower others intellectually and financially. When he is not running his real estate and credit fund department at Fortress, Peter is usually busy giving back to his community through various charity organizations. For instance, he is a member of Tipping point, a charity organization which works towards alleviating poverty through the provision of essential amenities to low-income families in San Francisco. Peter also understands how vital self-sufficiency is in this era where lack of employment is on the rise. It is for this reason that he, together with two other alumni of Princeton, established an entrepreneur fund, through which graduates get capital to develop their startups.
