Peter Briger – The Gifted Kid, The Finance Whiz, The Billionaire

Peter Briger is unarguably a gifted soul. A hardened veteran of various niches, nooks, and crannies of the realm of financial services, he’s accumulated the wealth of a billionaire throughout his young, thus-far-short life. Believe it or not, Mr. Peter Briger became a billionaire a whopping ten years ago, according to Forbes!

Let’s take a dive into the work history, educational accomplishments, and other important information that’s all too worthy to note.

The early beginnings of Mr. Peter Briger

Peter Briger began his life far more fortunate than a vast majority of people born and living in the United States; rather than being born a poor or even middle-class family, his parents were millionaires.

Thanks to his affluance, he was able to prepare for college readiness exams for far longer than his peers, he studied significantly harder, and made his entire high school experience dedicated to getting into the best Ivy League school he could.

Peter Briger first went to Princeton University – yes, that’s the Princeton University, an esteemed member of the Ivy League run of colleges and universities located in the northeastern United States. Next up was the University of Pennsylvania, yet another Ivy League school, to work on a master’s degree of business administration at none other than the Wharton School of Business.

Here comes work – watch out world!

Thanks to his extensive training in college – after all, his experience at the two aforementioned universities was undeniably more positive than arguably any other job applicant that dared to go up against him at the jobs he applied to immediately upon graduation.

Although Mr. Briger bounced around several firms and businesses prior to landing the job of his dreams, he eventually ended up at the best financial firm in the United States, if not the world at large; he worked at Goldman, Sachs & Co. for some 15 years before netting the title of Partner.

After Peter “Pete” Briger left Goldman, he found a job at Fortress Investment Group making some $23 million in the most recent fiscal period. etc
