    Fremont Group is the San Francisco-based private investment office for the Bechtel family. Fremont traces its roots to the early investments of the Bechtel Group, a leading global engineering, construction and project management company founded in 1898. Fremont Group was formed in 1980 as a subsidiary of the Bechtel Group and became a separate entity in 1986. Bechtel remains a private company and is in its fifth generation of family leadership. Fremont invests directly through teams of professionals it sponsors as well as through other external managers. Fremont maintains a number of divisions. Bechtel Family Global, or BF Global, seeks to earn superior returns primarily through long-term partnerships with exceptional investment managers with a demonstrated track record of allocating capital toward high quality publicly and privately owned businesses. FPR Partners is an independent Registered Investment Advisor that manages capital for a number of clients. Fremont Private Holdings makes platform investments of $30 million to $100 million in growing family and founder-owned operating businesses generating $15 million to $50 million in EBITDA. FPH is the direct private investment arm of Fremont Group, the investment office for the Bechtel family.
