Gareth Henry is a graduate of the University of Edinburgh Scotland, earning a degree in actuarial mathematics. The large majority of people with that degree end up working for an insurance company. He, however, defied this expectation and started work in financial industry. His first stop was at London’s Schroders plc where he had the position of director of strategic solutions.
Many people who are highly interested in math and have his sort of educational background aren’t really into socializing much. Gareth Henry, however, has built his career upon talking to his clients, colleagues, and others about investment topics which in large part is why he has been so successful at what he does for a living. His two main skills are raising capital from clients and engaging in investor relations.
Before long, he found himself working at the alternative assets giant Fortress Investment Group. He started out as their head of investor relations. He then transitioned into being the global head of IR, working with client’s everywhere in Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. He was hired for the same position by another financial institution, Angelo Gordon. He became highly skilled working with both hedge funds, real estate, private credit, and private equity firm.
Gareth Henry achieved this level of success quite early in his career, joining Fortress Investment Group at a top position when he was just 32 years old. When he was hired by Angelo Gordon, the president of that company said in a press release that he got a great executive who had proven himself to excel when it came to developing international relationships with institutional investors, insurance companies, financial firms, and high net worth individuals.
As he works with clients around the world, Gareth Henry usually starts his workday at 7 in the morning. It’s at this time that he places phone calls to Asia and Europe. He works in New York City and the rest of his day involves meeting clients in person, often for lunch or dinner. He says he calls at least eight clients each morning and meets clients in person twice a day or more.
