Jacob Gottlieb is an investor who specializes in the healthcare industry. He recently joined up with someone he used to work with 20 years ago, Stuart Weisbrod. They used to work closely with one another when they both worked at Merlin BioMed Group in New York City. They have once again teamed up and now have shared offices so that they can devise investment strategies together.
Stuart Weisbrod was one of the co-founders of Merlin BioMed Group. It was started in 1998 and exclusively invested in companies in the healthcare sector. This included medical devices, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. He has worked for several investment companies in the past such as Harpel Partners, Oracle Partners, Prudential-Bache Securities, and Merrill Lynch. He also has an extensive educational background including attending Princeton University and holding a Ph.D. in biochemistry.
When Jacob Gottlieb worked with Stuart Weisbrod at Merlin it had been when the biotechnology industry had been at the height of its revolution. In both 1999 and 2000 Merlin BioMed Group had achieved returns of more than 100%. Both Stuart Weisbrod and Jacob Gottlieb had been able to get major clients due to their investing skill including endowments, high net worth individuals and pension funds. Due to unforeseen circumstances, though, Merlin went out of business in 2007.
After Merlin closed its doors Stuart Weisbrod founded a new investment company, Iguana Healthcare Partners. This company, like Merlin, focused on investing in healthcare companies. Jacob Gottlieb also started his own investment firm called Visium Asset Management. He started this firm with $300 million in seed money and just a year later his company was managing $2.5 billion in assets under management. At its height, his company was operating an $8 billion hedge fund.
Visium Asset Management had to close its doors, though, in 2016. Three executives of this company were accused by the FBI and SEC of both insider trading and mismarking. While Jacob Gottlieb was cleared of having committed any crimes himself he nonetheless had to shut his company down in the wake of this event. His new company is Altium Capital and he considers this a fresh start to his career as an investor.

With the long success of Fortress Investment Group, it comes as no surprise that their investment portfolio also includes a widening array of international investments and acquisitions. In order to continue its steady growth since its founding in 1989, Fortress Investment Group has embraced a forward-thinking mindset that has served the firm and its investors quite well. It is interesting to note that the firm began with investments in Italy but has also been active in Asia, primarily in the Japanese markets. Its first Yen-denominated funds, known as the Fortress Japan Opportunity Fund is one of the earliest forays into international markets made by Fortress Investment Group. From there, several more Asian-dominated funds emerged: Fortress Asia Macro Fund, Japan Opportunity Fund I and II, and FIG’s Japan Income Fund.
Fortress Investment Group also grew its office space in 2011 by adding its second location in the United States, situated in the San Francisco Bay area. Around this same time, the company also increased its presence in Asia by opening new locations in both Singapore and Shanghai. In 2017, almost exactly one decade after the firm decided to go public, it was acquired by SoftBank. While its name may sound American, SoftBank is, in fact, a Japanese multinational financial institution that has its primary location in Tokyo. It turned out to be an interesting acquisition model which is likely to serve both sides equally well. SoftBank made its acquisition at the $3.3B level and interestingly, FIG will continue to operate independently of SoftBank.
It will be interesting to see how the acquisition affects the investment strategies of FIG, but early moves suggest that they will not be altered too significantly. SoftBank is known for its investment in the technology field, one that FIG is not foreign to. There are several exciting new aspects emerging in today’s tech market with the Internet of Things chief among them. It is expected that Fortress will continue investments and acquisitions in the digital and technological industries, as evidenced by its recent $20M partnership with iPass on of the world’s largest wifi and connectivity providers.
