Investment Strategy

Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC invests across a number of major sectors within the transportation industry, including aviation, energy, intermodal transport and rail, and may pursue acquisitions in other areas as and when they arise in the future. In general, FTAI seeks to own a diverse mix of high quality infrastructure and equipment within its target sectors that generate predictable cash flows, in markets that we believe provide the potential for strong long-term growth and attractive returns on deployed capital. We believe that by investing in a diverse mix of assets across sectors, we can select from among the best risk-adjusted investment opportunities, while avoiding overconcentration in any one segment, further adding to the stability of its business. FTAI targets total returns, or IRRs, of 15% to 25% with the use of what we believe to be reasonable leverage.

Our broad investment mandate allows us to invest across the entire transportation and transportation-related infrastructure market while our permanent capital base allows us to be a buy-and-hold investor with very long term investment time horizons.

Our portfolio currently consists of assets in the aviation, energy, intermodal transport and rail market sectors.
