In spite of Gareth Henry’s area of major being in actuarial mathematics while he was at school in the Heriot Watt University, he took a sharp departure from the career a typical actuarial mathematician would pursue. A typical actuarial mathematician would seek a career in the insurance industry but not Gareth Henry, who elected to become a professional investor in the hedge fund and private equity industry. Gareth has always found the degree of overlapping between finance and mathematics to be intriguing. It was, however, not until he developed a profound understanding of the dynamics of economics and risk management that Gareth Henry became irreversibly hooked. Perhaps it is his background as an actuarial mathematician that has enabled Gareth to be such a success in the hedge fund and private equity industry. Or perhaps it is his ability to engage with anyone in a meaningful conservation that has made Gareth so successful in the hedge fund and private equity industry. Gareth Henry first experienced success in this industry at Schroder as its Director of Strategic Solutions and then at the Fortress Investment Group as its Head of International Investor Relations and Global Head of Investor Relations.
