Peter Briger is the driving force behind one of the biggest investment firms in the world but it is not as easy as he makes it look. So how does he manage to succeed with a great deal of ease? Well, it all began back in the late 60’s when he first tried to find out who he wanted to be. His folks would always tell him to get top marks in his classes & this led to him getting the role of valedictorian. He was not too keen to take it in the beginning but soon realized it was his destiny. Peter Briger then went off to college at Princeton & tried his best to prove himself by getting a perfect GPA. He did not know how long it would take but soon brought this to fruition. By the time he was a junior, he had made phi beta kappa & was proud to accept this honor. As he got to the end of the road, he decided to go for an MBA at U Penn & this is when he really hit his stride. It took a bit longer than he had planned but Peter Briger was soon able to walk across that stage & receive his degree. As he said goodbye to his academic career, he went on to work for one of the local financial firms for a while but it did not fulfill him in the long run. This is why he opted to create one of his own & it soon came to be known as FIG. It was not clear at first if it would do well in the long run but he has since been able to bring it to the top of its field. Peter Briger now lives in NY.
