Gareth Henry joined the Fortress Investment Group as its Global Head of Investor Relations after holding that same position at several other companies. His experience and dedication to providing clients with the type of service they need from their chosen financial investments firm is what made him the kind of successful asset manager that has been sought out to lead global relations at other companies such as Angelo, Gordon and Company, an independently owned partnership that is focused on managing credit, real estate and private equity investments, and that is headquartered in New York with offices in Europe and Asia.
While he was an executive at Fortress Investment Group, which was one of the world’s top highly diversified global investments management operations, Gareth Henry worked in both its US and London offices. His international relations skills was a big part of what helped the business grow into one of the largest private equity firms in the world, and become the first one to be traded publicly on the New York Stock Exchange in February of 2007. During his two years at Angelo, Gordon and Company, the UK native, who has stated that client services is critical to the success of global investment management, helped the hedge fund firm manage approximately $28 billion in assets. He also worked at another money management company called Schroders as a Managing Director.
After graduating with honors from Heriot-Watt University in the UK, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics in 2001, Gareth Henry went on to become a Management Researcher at Watson Wyatt, a financial consulting firm. The highly experienced global relations manager further advanced his education when he became a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 2004 and a Fellow of Society of Actuaries in 2007. In order to become a Fellow of these institutions, applicants are required to have completed their studies at a college and earned a degree in their chosen major. They also have to have proven work experience in the business industry. Through his hard work as a student and an executive, Gareth Henry met all of those requirements.
