After graduating from Oregon State University, 34 years ago, Wes Edens was ready for a long career in the investment world. Although Edens graduated with a bachelor degree in Finance, the world of investment management has been his home for decades. His has worked in this niche all his life after Oregon State University. As a dedicated employee in a relatively small bank (in San Francisco) to now being a co-CEO of one of the biggest investment companies in the world, Eden is still the same passionate and strong-willed person. For example, Wes Edens recalls the infamous financial crisis period, where he worked only resting four Sundays regardless of the financial situation.
For the last two decades, Edens has been in charge of one of the most futuristic investment management entities in the world, Fortress Investment Group. In this period of twenty years, he has been part of the company’s growth agenda from being a small company to being public traded and later SoftBank investment. As a principal, co-CEO, and the man in charge of two company’s entities, one cannot stop to admire Wes Edens approach to administration and leadership. Together with Peter L. Briger and an addition to the management circle, Randal A. Nardone, the trio is without a doubt the future of investment management.
Currently, Wes Edens is in charge of two demanding units of Fortress Investment Group. They include the fast-growing alternative investment and private equity firm. The two entities have given him a chance to work with some of the best people in the investment world and more importantly establish Fortress branches around the world. As the man in charge of private equity, Wes Edens has led the unit to one of the most brilliant expansions in Fortress. Currently, private equity has four major projects. The projects include healthcare investment, financial services to different entities, transportation and more importantly, energy and infrastructure.
Apart from being part of the Fortress journey, Edens has other interests outside. Most of these interests include making wise investments. Eight years ago, for example, he injected an investment to Springleaf Holdings Inc. worth more than $124 million. Currently, his interest in this company is over $3 billion.
