Math geeks are not the best public relations people and they rarely manage to succeed in customer service or similar roles. Gareth Henry studied actuarial Mathematics at the university and instead of ending up in an insurance company he found his passion for investment. Unlike the majority of math geeks, reformed or not, Gareth Henry is very good at talking to clients, colleagues and even strangers about their investments. He, therefore, ended up working in finance and investment doing investor relations and raising capital.

His job included communicating with investors from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the US. By the close of his time at Fortress Investment Group he was managing a $4billion hedge fund.
By the time Gareth turned 32 he had gained over 10 years of experience in the investment business. He went on to join Angelo Gordon a company that manages more than 26 billion in credit investments, private equity and real estate. The company offered him full partnership obviously recognizing that Gareth Henry was an experienced executive with global investor relations experience.
Mr Henry has been described as always in motion and he is a believer that activity creates opportunity. He credits his success to his constant determination to understand clients and satisfy their needs. He, therefore, gives a generous amount of time calls and in-person meetings with them. Gareth Henry believes that if one loves their job then they ought to give as much time as possible to it which is what he does.
