Peter Briger, principal and co-chairman of Fortress Investment Group, will offer a keynote address at the seventh-annual AR Symposium, which is being held November 2-3 in New York City at the New York Athletic Club.
Briger, who is responsible for Fortress’s credit hedge funds, joined the firm in 2002 and has been a member of the board of directors since November 2006. He was elected co-chairman in August 2009.
After the crash of 2008, changes made at Fortress’s hedge funds helped the firm show the best gain in AR’s annual Hedge Fund Report Card, moving from its near-bottom rank of 30th to tenth this year.
Prior to joining Fortress in March 2002, Briger spent 15 years at Goldman Sachs, where he became a partner in 1996. Over the course of his career there, he held the positions of co-head of the whole loan sales and trading business, co-head of the fixed income principal investments group, co-head of the Asian distressed debt business, co-head of the Goldman Sachs Special Opportunities (Asia) Fund and co-head of the Asian real Estate private equity business.
