Fortress' Logan Circle At The Tipping Point

Across its funds businesses Fortress Investment Group has put in some good returns this year, including from its hedge funds.  Should the superior returns continue, the Group will be well placed to give better profitability to its investors, not the least from Logan Circle, the institutional fixed income manager acquired in April 2010.

The second quarter results from Fortress reflected the significant shift in the split of AUM that has taken place over the last year within the group. Logan Circle continued to accumulate assets at a faster pace than the rest of Fortress Investment Group. At the end of June the Logan Circle AUM were up 40% y-o-y at $18.1bn, well ahead of the Private Equity ($13.8bn) and Credit ($11.5bn) segments of the business in absolute size and growth rates.  AUM in the remaining segment, Liquid Markets, were down 30% y-o-y at $4.4bn.
