Peter Briger has certainly lived a life unlike any other but just what are some of the choices he made that led him to the path he is on right now? Well, Peter Briger recently sat to talk about what experiences made him the man he is today. He was born in a small town not too far from Newark & discovered he had a knack for tests when he was only in the 2nd grade. This is how he came to finish with one of the best GPAs of anyone in his HS class & from there, it was only a matter of time before he got into every last ivy league school in the nation. Though Peter Briger was tempted to try out Harvard or Yale, he opted to go to Princeton in the end. So he became a tiger in the mid 80’s & tried to do his best to secure his future and more
He would do this by getting his grades up & interning over the summer to get some experience in his chosen field. It was not long before he had to decide which major, he would go with & in the end, opted for finance to the surprise of no one. From there, Peter Briger knew he would need a bit more if he were going to be one of the best. So he went for an MBA at U Penn & this is when he learned all about what it would take to run his own business. He was able to take this info & use it to start FIG, one of the most well-known financial firms in the world. He was able to establish an HQ in the heart of NYC & Peter Briger now runs it with his other partners & cofounders.
