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.

When it comes to the U.S. economy and what will happen in various areas of it, there are always many individuals eager to make predictions. However, when a well-respected venture capitalist such as Shervin Pishevar lets loose on a number of economic predictions, people sit up and listen. This happened recently during a 21-hour tweet storm, in which Shervin Pishevar made a number of interesting predictions regarding various facets of the national economy.
Beginning his tweet storm with his thoughts on the U.S. stock market, Shervin Pishevar gave many investors food for thought when he predicted a drop of 6,000 points for stocks in the coming months. Believing volatility in the current bond market will precipitate this drop, he also predicted that for investors looking for a safe haven for their money, gold and other precious metals may be the answer. According to him, those investors who pull money from stocks and invest instead in metals will be rewarded over time.
After his stunning prediction about the stock market, Shervin Pishevar made more fascinating predictions about the companies in Silicon Valley. Predicting their best days are now behind them, he predicted foreign competition from China and many other nations will surpass Silicon Valley companies when it comes to strategic planning, marketing, research and development, and recruiting top IT talent. While these predictions paint a very dark picture for Silicon Valley, he did predict that if these companies choose to become very aggressive in the above-mentioned areas, it may be possible for them to once again be the high-tech leaders worldwide.
And just when many people thought the tweet storm was finished, Shervin Pishevar came back with even more predictions, this time about virtual currency Bitcoin. Like the stock market, he sees a sharp drop in value for the virtual currency, perhaps by up to $5,000. However, while he predicts stocks will take a significant amount of time to rebound from their losses, Shervin Pishevar predicts Bitcoin will rebound much quicker, and in fact grow in value over the coming year, making investors who stay the course quite happy and wealthy.

The company operates from Silicon Valley in the state of California.
The reinvestment model that it uses is unique since it allows the firm to acquire different assets at very favourable deals. The company partners up with key stakeholders and sponsors to wheel their design.

There are more than ten acquisitions that it has transacted and here is a look at a few of these remarkable deals.
HGGC’s acquisition of the Davies group
Davies group is a European company in the insurance secrot. It is based inlonodn, and it offers insurance covers to clients in the United Kingdom as well as Ireland. In this acquisition deal, they hired PriceWaterCoopers to be their financial and tax advisors.
Davies Company is a big establishment as it processes claims that amount to huge sums of money annually. This move helped them to be established in the international business environment.
The CEO of HGGC Richard Lawson commented that Davies Group was not just another investment move, but a strategic investment because Davies Group was already established in its field with cutting-edge technology and systematic planning and research efficiency. Other companies in the health services sector that they have invited in include Pearl and Holding Group which is a company that provides insurance services and Integrity Marketing Group, a company which distributes health and life insurance in the senior market.
HGGC acquisition of RPX
The company acquired RPX in May 2018 under the Fund II. .RPX was acquired for $500M and all its sitting executives replaced by the executives at HGGC. This is because the company prefers controlled investments and being majority shareholders gives them the upper hand in the management of such acquisitions.
In February 2018 a picture made its way to the internet and instantly became a viral sensation. The picture was of rap mogul Jay Z standing in front of a crowd of people with Roc Nation Sports President OG Juan Perez. They were in the middle of celebrating OG Juan’s 50th birthday and it was quite the celebration. In fact, according to Jay Z himself, the night’s festivities topped 100K dollars! That is an immense amount of money to be spent on a birthday and it left many wondering who OG Juan Perez is and why is his birthday celebration cost what we would normally see spent on A-list celebrities.
To understand OG Juan and Sean Carter’s friendship, first you need to understand who OG Juan is and where he comes from. Born in Harlem, OG Juan grew up enthralled with the music business and how it is produced. After high school, OG Juan remained deeply entrenched in the music production business and had his own local recording studio where he honed his craft. Ultimately OG Juan was introduced to Jay Z in 1996 through Roc A Fella co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke and the rest was history. Through working together, OG Juan and Jay Z developed a deep friendship to the point where they go on family outings together and OG Juan is frequently mentioned in Jay Z songs.
The party for OG Juan’s 50th was extravagant and the buzz was that Jay Z was the one who covered the costs. These costs included a 13K dollar dinner, a 9K dollar round at a bar, and a whopping 91K dollars in champagne at the Playhouse Club. However, Jay Z went on record to say the OG Juan actually footed the bill for his own birthday celebration that evening showing that it’s not only the famous people in the Roc family that possess a large bankroll.
