Fortress Adds UBS Financials Analyst To Credit Group

Sep 23 2011 | 11:20am ET

Fortress Investment Group has hired a UBS analyst to beef up its corporate credit group.

William Tanona will work under Peter Briger, who leads that unit. His stay at UBS was a short one: Tanona joined the bank in December after stints at JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Collins Stewart. At UBS, Tanona covered financials.

"Bill is a top industry talent in the financial sector," Briger said. "We are confident his expertise will benefit our investment process and ultimately our limited partners."
