The New York-based alternative investments giant said it would “retain capital for future potential investment opportunities and for working capital purposes.” It is the tenth-straight quarter without a dividend from the $44 billion firm.
Fortress also said that director Howard Rubin would resign from its board at the end of the year. It appointed David Barry to fill Rubin’s post.
