Wesley “Wes” Edens owns one-third of Fortress Investment Group, an alternative capital management firm based in New York City, New York, which he co-founded alongside Robert “Rob” Kauffman and Randal Nardone in 1998. Edens’ blossoming co-creation is one of the finest alternative investment management organization in the United States.
Fortress Investment Group is proud to say that it currently serves – as of March 2018 – upwards of 1,700 clients; employs more than 900 people across the world; and oversees the close, careful management of the 40.9 billion dollars’ worth of mostly-corporate investments clients entrust in the company-wide hands of Fortress.
Wes Edens has been and always will be an integral force of Fortress Investment Group
Fortress Investment Group is fortunate enough to have Wes Edens as one of the three principals of the investment group; alongside Randal Nardone, he and Wes make up two of the three founders to occupy the C-suite of the publicly-traded fortress Investment Group.
Nine years after the company was founded, Fortress Investment Group put forth an initial public offering. Fortress is one of the few alternative investment management companies in the United States to offer its stock on the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq Stock Market.
Wes Edens was a big part of Fortress Investment Group’s first five years of operation; its assets then grew from $500 million to $4 billion in that frame.

Wesley Robert Edens currently owns one-half of the National Basketball Association’s Milwaukee Bucks; is the sole owner of the electronic sports world’s FlyQuest, a professional League of Legends team; and owns a significant share in Aston Villa, an association football – soccer, or simply football around the rest of the English-speaking world – team that is a part of the English Football League Championship.
Mr. Edens is new to the business of professional soccer, though he injected roughly three million British Pounds’ worth into Aston Villa just a couple of weeks ago.
