He was there for a few years before he joined the U.K. based money management firm Schroders. That’s where Gareth Henry first became a product manager. In 2007 he moved on to a U.S. based asset manager Fortress Investment Group. There he assisted the firm with it’s marketing. Currently, Henry is still based in London at Fortress, where he is responsible for raising capital. His markets are Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and he is quite successful with his accounts. With Henry’s networking and hard work, he has been able to make great connections with sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and pension funds.
In 2016 Angelo, Gordon & Co, said that Gareth Henry had joined the team. He came on to the New York based alternative investment firm as a global Head of Investor Relations and a Managing Director. He had become the Global Head of Investor Relations for Fortress Investment Group before he left. He will report to the President of the firm Lawrence M.V.C. Schloss and he will also become a partner. Mr. Schloss is excited about Gareth Henry joining the firm.

Mr. Schloss feels the team is much stronger with this new addition. Henry is just as thrilled to be a part of the team, he says he is with a company who has earned a reputation for providing strong returns within market cycles and strategies. He looks forward to working with the firm’s investment professionals and skilled investor relations.
