Hamed Mokhtar. Managing Director and Chairman of the Fortress Investment
Committee, has established a strong track record of success in generating
positive returns for his clients. A specialist in US equities, Mokhtar has
consistently outperformed the market and capitalized on unique asset
allocation strategies focused on value investing. Fortress has achieved this
by maintaining capital provision ratios of 1:1, as well as a maximum investor
rate of return of 8.75%. “Our philosophy is to invest in global securities
that are underpriced or undervalued due to a combination of negative market
factors – whether they be environmental, political, or sector specific” says
Mokhtar.

During these challenging economic times, most asset managers have chosen to
invest in conservative asset classes, such as government bonds, corporate
bonds, and index funds. While Fortress agrees with implementing this asset
preservation model, it does so without sacrificing higher than average
returns, which it achieves by identifying and securing margins of safety
within the global equities and precious metals markets. Mokhtar states “Gold
has gone up by 600% over the last ten years; silver has gone up even more.
Opportunities still exist to capitalize on further gains”

Over the past two years, Fortress has been able to secure capital commitments
in excess of $800 million US dollars, an impressive figure, given the current
economic climate. “This was achieved through our past and present clients’
continued faith in our management capabilities, as well as their positive
expectations for our future performance,” says Hamed Mokhtar. “We continue to
deliver our clients above benchmark yields and hope to continue to do so into
the future” he adds. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased 8.8%
over the last twelve months, many of Fortress’ holdings – such as Bank of
America, Bank of Ireland, and Genworth Financial – have increased 115%, 46%,
and 18% respectively.

The only true measure of a firm’s success is its performance. Mokhtar states
that “once clients understand our established track record of success, coupled
with our firm’s sound investment strategy, placing capital with Fortress
Investments becomes an integral part of their long-term savings strategy.”
Fortress Investments is an Abu Dhabi based Investment Firm, with branch
offices located globally.
