A lot of people have been wondering what has made Fortress Investment Group the kind of industry leader that it is; well, their solution is here today. Fortress Group has been a project of real leadership and adherence to the core principles that the company has set in its strategic plan. This has enabled the firm to keep moving even during the difficult moments of economic crisis that have led to the collapse of many other investment firms. The leadership of the firm have been quite strong and supportive of its junior staff and hence creating a very conducive environment for innovation and subsequent growth of the firm.
Among the principles and competencies that have been fundamental to the growth of Fortress Investment Group is its ability to manage mergers and acquisitions competently. This was unique expertise that was introduced to the company by Peter Briger when he joined the company in 2002 from Goldman Sachs. Peter made all the personnel in Fortress Group learn the essential art of establishing and maintaining strong and professional relationships with stakeholders of big organizations in the investment and even other industries. Lucky enough, the strategy has been so fruitful for Fortress that it has been able to engage in high profile business deals with other organizations, which involve mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships.
One of the companies that were successfully acquired by was the Intrawest. This was a Canadian company which was the largest ski resort operator in the whole of North America. Other companies that were acquired in the period were RailAmerica and AIG’s American General Financial Services. However, the latter would the change its name to be called Springleaf Financial Services. One thing worth noting is that while Springleaf was under the management of Fortress Investment Group, its value increased rapidly to over $3.5 billion, which was more than 27 times the value of its original purchase price.
Later in 2017, an international company that specializes in technology and telecommunications, SoftBank Group, purchased Fortress Investment Group in a cash-based transaction that cost them $3.3 billion. This was a very bold move by Fortress Group because they are going to enjoy the advantage of indulging in new economic markets.

In cordial partnership, Graeme Holm and Rebecca Walker dedicated an entire six months in 2013 to bring to life a business idea that sort to find answers to problems in the mortgage market in Australia. This was based on the conclusion that a lot of families lacked sufficient guidance and support for the services provided. Graeme Holm, in particular, was not impressed by the fact that financial institutions gave these families bad deals. With this in mind, Graeme was determined to change that situation through the Infinity Group Australia that was run by the principle of having a personal trainer on board to cater for the finance concept.
Infinity Group Australia stood out due to the unique approach it took to attain financial fitness. Everyday Australians now had the chance to be more productive through the acquisition of wealth and clearance of debts which consequently results in a secure future. The company-based success protocol was specifically tailored to reflect integrity, care, passion, and most importantly trust. This gave every family an opportunity to have fair deals regardless of their financial ability. So far one thing is clear; Infinity Group Australia challenges other financial institutions through one on one consistent guidance and support given to its clients.
It is therefore not a surprise that this new approach has yielded results thus proving to be valid. An approximate of $41,000 of client debt is cleared within 12 months through Infinity Group Australia. An outstanding 100 percent of clients are now able to cover all home loans within three months and this even beats the previous 12 months wait. It is not a surprise, therefore, to note that Infinity Group Australia does not follow the traditional broker processes throughout their operations. An initial step includes in-depth analyzation of a client’s household expenses and comparing it to their needs and wants.
Clients are steered towards coming up with a cash-based budget that is run weekly and covers all expenses inclusive of groceries, fuel, entertainment, and travel. Holm is known for his financial philosophy which states “If you can’t pay cash, then you’re not buying it.” Through his company, every dollar is accounted for and serves a purpose to the whole wellbeing of its user. Most people who have had contact with this technique have shown great appreciation through reviews and positive remarks. For instance, one client is grateful to the company for helping her create long-term goals and bring them to realization. This is beneficial in the sense that a person can seek early retirement and still have a secured fortune.

Jason Hope, a businessman and philanthropist from Scottsdale, Arizona, has been dedicated to giving back to the community in many ways. One of the ways in which he is most committed, is to delving into health problems and diseases that are rampant across the world. Out of a very long list, there is one disease that everyone is subject to, regardless of where they come from, their race, status or wealth. Everyone will age at some point in time. Aging is no respecter of persons, and it will impact the lives of everyone on the planet.
Aging is inevitable ,and it has long been viewed as the one condition that is not an exception. Everyone accepts and knows that they are going to age, but what will they do about it? Jason Hope is on a mission to find a way to either slow down or reverse the aging process. As you age your skin changes, your bones weaken, you may experience hair loss, and your energy decreases. There is research being conducted that the pace of aging may be slowed down or reversed. The one big topic everyone wants to elaborate on, is the diseases that impact those who are aging.
Diseases like arthritis or neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease are rampant. Modern day healthcare is focused on treating conditions once they have crept up. Jason Hope believes that there is a better way. The way as he sees it is to look at the heart of where aging starts, and research until a way is found to slow down the aging process. Helping patients cope with their symptoms can lead to frustration for them as well as their caregivers. Donating his own funds to the cause, Jason Hope is literally full of hope in that there may be a safe way to do this. Through scientific research and a think tank known as The SENS Foundation, he donated half a million dollars to this organization that is focused on working on a solution for aging.
The ultimate goal of the SENS Foundation is to find or create technology that can give the public the hope of slowing down aging. When this approach is embraced, it’s easier for the public to see just how simple it is to be proactive about aging and fight is before it comes about. Will this foundation find the answer?
