It went public in 2007 and 10 years, it becomes private, a development that excites Wes Edens, one of the firm’s principals, about the deal.
Purchase by SoftBank
Fortress has continued to incorporate its operations including management of about $40 billion in global assets into SoftBank’s global strategies. The transition has been smooth owing to the goodwill of Fortress’s principles including Wes Edens, Randal Nardone, and Peter Briger. SoftBank is a Japanese company that has been acquiring and helping tech start-ups to grow. It has been dedicated to supporting the information revolution. With this deal, the company makes an entrance to the world of asset management. Led by Masayoshi Son, the company is known for its ownership stake in U.S. telecom giant Sprint as well as significant stakes in Uber and Alibaba.
