While Gareth Henry may not be a household name in the investment industry right now, it does look like he’s well on his way to getting there. Born in London, England, Mr. Henry eventually made his way to New York City to keep moving up in the investment world; currently, he’s the Global Head of Investor Relations at Fortress Investment Group, although it did take him a while to get there. Growing up in London, Gareth Henry was passionate about mathematics and ended up bringing that passion to college with him; in 2001 he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics from Heriot-Watt University.
Not long after graduating, he received a job as an Analyst at Watson Wyatt. That being said, he was able to move quickly up the ladder, and he eventually made it on to the Global Investment Management Services team. However, Gareth Henry left the company in 2004 when he took up a position as an Investment Manager with SEI Investments. While he didn’t stay in the position for long, it seems as though this is where his career took off.Only a year after joining SEI Investments, Mr. Henry became the Director of Shroders.
During this time he was able to continually improve on the results that he was expecting. However, Gareth Henry began to feel somewhat more adventurous and in 2007 he moved to the United States to become a part of Fortress Investment Group. At the time, he became the companies Managing Director. He eventually became the Head of International Investment Relations with Fortress; this saw him bring in a considerable amount of capital for Fortress’ hedge funds; this capital was somewhat evenly spread across Fortress Investment Groups’ private equity and real estate holdings, among other areas.
With his position, he’s regularly involved with companies across the world; however, Gareth Henry is generally focused on the likes of the United States, England, the Middle East and a significant portion of Asia. He has also concurrently served as the Global Head of Investor Relations; in this role, he’s managed to successful oversee Fortress’ $4 billion hedge fund.
