Gareth Henry is a jolly, knowledgeable, self-professed math geek hailing from the UK who has a love for helping other people safely grow their wealth. His alma mater is the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, which is actually one of the world’s most preeminent mathematics schools. In Edinburgh, Gareth learned just how the actuarial models used in the insurance and finance industries work. Yet instead of purely working from a theoretical perspective for the sake of learning, Gareth learned these complex models so that he would have a complete top-to-bottom understanding of capital markets and the mathematical models upon which they are based. For if one learns these complex foundations, they are much more comfortable with handling large sums of money and in turn, are able to grow wealth much better than others.
Gareth Henry’s confidence in actuarial models and flexibility to work at various global firms helped him to finally achieve the role of Global Head of Investor Relations at Fortress Capital: a billion-dollar firm which has offices in London, New York, and beyond. Gareth has so far worked in various financial organizations like Philadelphia’s SEI, London’s Watson Wyatt, and London’s Schroders to name a few.
The specialty knowledge in terms of financial products which Gareth holds include the likes of private credit, hedge funds, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and fixed income. “I believe that I can’t truly serve you as my client unless I have a complete understanding of your needs, as well as the needs of the organization I’m working to help grow”, Gareth Henry says. “With that in mind, I make a minimum of 8-10 calls to clients per day, plus at least two face-to-face client meetings.” Gareth Henry also specializes in Mezzanine loans, Senior Loans, Distressed Credit, and various other types of Capital Appreciation strategies.
