The Japanese investment firm SoftBank Group acquired Fortress Investment Group recently and kept Randal and the investing management team. As part of the deal, Fortress is able to continue as an independant company. This allows them to continue their alternative investing strategy which will strengthen the company even more. This deal with SoftBank will enable Fortress to continue to grow at a fast pace. It was a good deal for investors too as shares were purchased at a profitable price. SoftBank and Fortress will continue to grow at the multi billion dollars level.
