Building a Career

Gareth Henry worked for Watson Wyatt as an analyst in the manager research team. He joined the company right after graduating. Gareth later migrated to the company’s Global Investment Management Services team. He remained in that wing of the company until 2004. That same year, the guru joined SEI Investments. His stint at the company involved investment management in the areas of pension funds, consultants, and insurance.

In 2005, Gareth Henry made another step in his career journey by joining Shroders to play a director’s role. He worked for the company for two years and joined Fortress Investment Group. It was a job that made him move into the US so that he could efficiently play his role as Head of International Investor Relations. At Fortress, Gareth made a name for himself after raising significant capital for the company’s real estate, private credit, private equity, and hedge funds.

The job at Fortress involved engaging with Europe’s, Asia’s, Middle East’s, and US’ investors. He also oversaw the company’s $4 billion hedge fund and Asian distribution agreements. His success made Institutional Investor (a renowned magazine) to describe his work as phenomenal. It was partly because the financial guru established great ties to wealth funds, insurance companies, and pension funds.

Gareth Henry has achieved a lot for Fortress by incorporating hard work and relationship building. You would expect someone who reaches such heights to be old and wise. Gareth is wise, but not old. His achievements at Fortress came about when he was just 32. Even more baffling, he was succeeding in an area his ‘math geek’ peers were afraid to venture.

After Fortress, Gareth Henry joined Angelo Gordon (AG). His stint there lasted up to 2018 (February). AG is a company that manages over $26 billion in credit investments, private equity, and real estate. Company President, Lawrence Schloss says they hired Gareth because of his extensive global investor relations experience.
