How the Fortress Investment group is growing its portfolio

The Fortress Investment group has been an asset management company since it was founded two decades ago. The group has grown from a modest 400 million dollar asset under management to over 40 billion dollars today. This growth has been facilitated by good management as well as an ability to diversify their portfolio at every juncture. Its three founding members had a vision that the company would grow, but may never have anticipated the level of success it has found today. All three had an extensive financial background, and this was one of the key reasons why they believed the company would succeed.

As an asset management company, the Fortress Investment Group has various areas where it has developed sufficient expertise and are therefore able to invest continuously in the same. The group has an interest in media, real estate, finance, and transport & infrastructure. These areas have been of much interest to the group investing in them with equity and in credit terms. One of the most recent investments in the Transport and infrastructure area by the Fortress Investment Group was through Brightline. This is a private railroad company based in Florida. The company specializes in the provision of passenger trains in areas that are considered too short to fly yet too long to drive. This year the company introduced the Miami-Fort Lauderdale route which has been in the works for a number of years. Following the announcement, a few things became immediately clear to the commuters of this route. To know more about the company click here.

The journey would cut down from two hours during rush hour to thirty-five minute. The passenger train is not subject to traffic or such like elements, and thus its speed remains unaffected during these times. The train will have specific hours, which gives commuters an ability to plan their time; this includes those who use the early morning and late evening trains. The ride will cost ten dollars, which is relatively cheaper than the cost of an Uber while avoiding all the inconveniences of traveling by road. The train will also offer commuters free WIFI and charging ports. In this day and age where everyone wants to remain connected the Fortress Investment Group through Brightline ensured that this was achieved through a partnership with internet providers. The train are built to the highest American standards was also equipped with all leather seats to achieve maximum comfort as well as wide aisles to ensure it’s not cramped.

Charlamagne Tha God Responds To Eminem’s Homophobic Slurs

 

In a recent interview, the American radio presenter, and television personality Charlamagne Tha God talked about Eminem’s new album “Kamikaze.” Charmalagne stated he was pleased with the attention he was receiving. Moreover, Charlamagne enjoys the attention he has received from other rappers because it means he has made it.

 

For Charmalagne Tha God, it really doesn’t matter if he is being dissed or praised because he loves the attention he got from rappers like Chingy and, most recently, Eminem. Still, there is something Charmalagne disliked from Eminem’s new album: the homophobic slurs he throws at Tyler the Creator. He is certain that Eminem doesn’t care about disrespecting the LGBTQ community.

 

Charmalagne knows Eminem has the freedom of speech to talk about any topic he likes, still, that doesn’t mean he can’t be held accountable for the things he said about Tyler the Creator especially when Tyler had a really hard time coming out as a bisexual (Eminem intentionally cited something Tyler said in regards to himself). Charmalagne also said that when Eminem throws a homophobic slur he is not only talking about Tyler because he is also referencing to an entire community. See This Article to learn more.

 

Charlamagne Tha God said he is completely on board with Eminem using his white privilege to diss Donald Trump. Additionally, he proclaimed that Eminem’s political lyrics are more organic in “Kamikaze” than in “Revival.” He is completely sure that Eminem’s pieces are a reflection of the time America is living. Since everybody is talking about Trump, wouldn’t Eminem do it? Overall, Charmalagne enjoyed “Kamikaze” and he is thrilled to hear Eminem’s new work.

 

Over the years, Charmalagne (his real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey) has made an important career for himself. He is the co-host of the radio show The Breakfast Club which he makes with both DJ Envy and Angela Yee. He is also an actor who has starred in the TV show Guy Code, Guy Court, and Girl Code. Moreover, he works as a VJ in The Week in Jams. From 2015, he has been hosting the show Uncommon Sense and he previously appeared in The Wendy Williams Experience..

Betsy DeVos Continues To Dedicate Her Life To The Service Of The American People

Betsy DeVos recently surprised many people when she made a visit to a charter school with the rapper Pitbull. The rapper, whose real name is Armando Christian Pérez, is mainly known for his profane rap music, but many others know him as the man who has started up a set of charter schools. DeVos made the appearance with Pitbull because she supports charter schools, private schools, and the rights of Americans to be able to choose where they send their kids to school.

 

While some were confused by the visit, others were not; mainly because they know Betsy DeVos is the kind of woman who will do what needs to be done to help the American people. She was recently made the Secretary of Education for the United States, and she has been working hard since day one to see the changes she envisions for her country. She also visited an all-girls charter school in Washington and was joined by Queen Rania of Jordan and Melania Trump. She made a comment after the visit about how well the charter school has been doing to serve the needs of the kids who attend it. She also pointed out how beneficial it can be when parents have the opportunity to send their children to a school that they choose.

 

Betsy DeVos is proud to have been a part of the educational choice movement before it gained the attention it has today. In the past, the movement has been seen as radical and outside of the box, but she never let any criticism deter her from her goal. When asked if she was happy with the progress that the movement has made, she pointed to statistics which state that 250,000 students are able to attend schools of their family’s choosing due to a spread of publicly funded programs all over the U.S.A. She also commented that new states are joining in to offer their residents educational choice, and some of these include Virginia, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Hampshire.

 

Betsy DeVos has dedicated a good portion of her life to the educational choice movement, which hopes to see American families being able to use public funding to pay for the tuition costs of their children so they can attend a private or charter school. She not only donates her time to the cause but has supported it through millions of dollars of donations. Today, she is working with people from both sides of the political aisle in order to make the United States a better place for the people that call the country their home.
