Fortress Investment Group is home to thousands of investors that are looking for good investment advice as well as business management strategies for increasing their annual profits. Wes Edens has been directing Fortress Investment Group and has directly influenced its growth since founding the company in 1998 with Randol Nardone and Rob Kauffman. Fortress Investment Group has many locations around the nation, employing more than 900 people across all locations. Wes Edens is still continuing his entrepreneurial journey outside Fortress Investment on top of expanding on the company on a regular basis. Thanks to Wes Eden’s, Fortress Investment Group is backing the widely anticipated Brightline train system in the United States.
Wes Edens has been working heavily to get the new Brightline train system running throughout the state of Florida, followed by the rest of the country once it is complete and error free. The Brightline Train system will be capable of providing transportation for the entire community in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the current running locations for the train system. Not only will the train save people money, but a whole lot of time when it comes to traffic hour. During traffic time, commute times are spiked by more than four times, which actually costs a lot of money when it comes to financial corporations around the state and country. Brightline will be able to cut back on traffic at the same time of providing transportation as well. The most unique thing about this new train system is that it will be the first of its kind, with no other private train systems in use around the United States.
Wes Edens started up Fortress Investment Group with two partners, but despite this, they could only finance a few hundred million dollars to get Fortress Investment Group started. Wes and his partners worked tirelessly in order to improve the companies strategies in the investment industry and their base of clients. In just two decades, Fortress Investment Group went from a few hundred million to tens of billions of dollars in asset management.
