Gareth Henry’s Rise to the Finance World

Gareth Henry has worked many roles in the financial industry. His experience entails a starting role as a director at Schroders from 2005 to 2007, and then moved on to become the Director of International Investor Relations at Fortress London until 2013 where he raised money from European, Middle Eastern, and African markets. After this point, he was promoted to the Global Head of Investor Relations at Fortress Liquid Markets until 2015, raising capital from clients all over the world but specifically in the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Finally, he currently presides as the Global Head of Investor Relations at Angelo, Gordon, & Co. in New York.

Before all of this, he took the bold move at 32 years of age to attend the University of Edinburgh and get a degree in Actuarial Mathematics. This helped him get a starting role at Watson Wyatt where he was a research manager, ultimately priming him for life in the world of finance. His combination of actuarial knowledge and skills in building relationships propelled him to the top of the finance world and allowed him to great success with insurance companies (who also use actuarial mathematics), sovereign wealth funds, and pension funds.

As a matter of fact, president of Angelo, Gordon, & Co. recently said that, “With Gareth Henry, we are further strengthening the world-class team we have assembled… as we seek to deliver strong performance on behalf of our investors.” Gareth Henry’s new role as Global Head not only includes direct communication with the President of Angelo, Gordon, & Co. (Lawrence Schloss), but also includes a managing partnership position as well. Gareth Henry is quoted as saying that “Angelo, Gordon has a well-earned reputation for delivering strong returns across strategies and market cycles. I am excited to join Angelo, Gordon and look forward to working with the Firm’s talented investor relations and investment professionals.” Angelo, Gordon, & Co. was founded in 1988 and currently manages $26 Billion spread across credit, real estate, and private equity.
