“Fortress delivered steady, profitable results in a quarter that saw double-digit declines in broad market indices and in which volatility spiked to its highest levels since early 2009,” said Daniel Mudd, Fortress Chief Executive Officer. “I believe our ability to maintain assets under management, raise new capital, expand our client base globally, and deliver positive financial performance speak to the benefits of our diversified business model. Looking forward, we see an investment landscape that should present historically attractive opportunities to deploy capital on our client’s behalf.”
