Alternative investments giant Fortress Investment Group swung to a fourth-quarter loss, hurt by an increase in compensation-related expenses and a decrease in incentive fees.

The firm, which went public last year, posted a $29.3 million quarterly loss. In the fourth quarter of 2006, the firm earned $290 million.

Assets under management rose 15% to $37.8 billion, driving management fees up 43%. But performance fee income dropped 59% on the quarter.

Quarterly revenue slipped 22% to $196 million, while pre-tax distributable earnings fell 43% to $78 million.
