There are different approaches to establishing a career in whatever industry we choose. Some career is born out of a huge risk that a person took to pursue their ideas or dreams, others from skills they acquired while learning under already successful individuals, a small section is of the ones that got handed down a business mantle by their family or friend and finally, some build a career out of the education and knowledge they acquired in school. Though the later occupies a small number in the successful entrepreneur’s pie, it is not often that you hear an entrepreneur credit their class work, these types of entrepreneurs have established some of the strongest foundations for their careers. One such entrepreneur, Gareth Henry, is not shy to admit that the knowledge he acquired from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, has played a major role in his career in the management and development of alternative assets investment.
The alternative asset investment industry experienced a great boost when banks lending regulations increased their requirements for originating the loan to private businesses. Being a relatively new business, opportunities to grow and increase returns in the business are ever increasing with different investment firms and individuals, like Gareth Henry, using them to help investors get the most of their money. Gareth Henry joined the American market when he joined Fortress Investments group, which is a global alternative asset investment management firm headquartered in New York.
In New York City, Mr. Henry provides financial services to a number of firms, independently and as a global head of the fortress group.
