Wes Edens is undeniably one of the wisest investors in the modern world. The business administration/finance graduate has made one of the best moves in the investment realm. His journey in the dynamic world of investment gives the correct impression that he is not only a visionary investor but also a smart risk taker.
Wes Edens commonly referred, as Wes is a co-founder of an investment group- Fortress Investment Group. The company has revolutionized the investment market in many ways and it is currently one of the most efficient companies in investment management. Through the leadership of Eden, the company has been able to diversify the company operations to lucrative capital markets, mergers of companies and acquisitions. As part of the company’s philosophy, Eden has been an integral part of helping the company to direct a huge amount of investment worth ($43 billion) and earn trust to (more than 1,750) investors. Together with Nardone, the company has continued to be the pacesetter in matters of efficiency and profitability.
Apart from being a big investor in the financial market, Wes Edens has over the years spread wings to venture into over business. The most coveted (by mainstream media) venture in the recent past is Brightline train. The train, which is the first one of its nature to be under private ownership, is the solution to the uneconomic traffic jams experienced in the major USA cities. The train system apart from solving the economic issues caused by the traffic jams gives people using the extra services such as comfort and connectivity (Wi-Fi). This mind-blowing investment is not only timely but also smart.
In the recent few months, Wes Edens has held talks with Aston Villa management for purchasing the football club. The English football, just like other modern sports needs finances to be competitive. According to statistics, the club has potential but the lack of finances has made it less competitive. With an injection of finances, there is assurance of better performance. Eden knows that and the agreement with Nassef Sawiris was probably the best decision in the recent investment to the English football.
