Gareth Henry
Fortress Investment Group

For most people, the prospect of studying actuarial mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, does not get the pulse racing. And yet that is what Gareth Henry, 32, chose to do. After graduating in 2000, he worked in management research at Watson Wyatt for a few years before joining U.K.-based money management firm Schro­ders, where he became a product manager in the multiasset-class group. In 2007 he left to go to U.S.-based alternative asset manager Fortress Investment Group to help with its marketing efforts.

Today, London-based Henry is a managing director at Fortress, in charge of raising capital in the European, Middle Eastern and African markets — and by all accounts, he’s phenomenal at it. Through hard work and relationship building, the reformed math geek has established great ties to sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and insurance companies.
