Gareth Henry Heads Global Investor Relations At Gordon & Angelo

Perhaps at the time he was studying actuarial math at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, neither Gareth Henry or his peers would have considered it a very sexy career. Today, however, it is regarded as the most valuable undergraduate degree one can obtain. After finishing his actuarial studies, Henry did management research at the firm of Watson Wyatt. He spent several years there before moving on to become an asset manager at Schroders — a money management firm in London. Henry went on, in 2007, to ultimately become a managing director at Fortress Investment Group[1] (today it’s an independently operated holding of the Japanese conglomerate, SoftBank).

Fortress Investment Group is the nation’s premier alternative-assets hedge fund, and at last check had roughly $43 billion under management. While at Fortress Investment Group, Gareth Henry focused on raising capital in several foreign markets. Those markets included the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.

After a productive stint of more than eight years at Fortress Group, Gareth Henry moved on to become managing director and the Head of Global Investor Relations at Angelo Gordon & Co. Among Henry’s responsibilities at Angelo Gordon & Co. are marketing, generating new clients, especially overseas clients, and guiding the development of new products as well as new channels to move those products. Mr. Henry’s direct report at Angelo Gordon is Lawrence Schloss. It is expected that Henry will become a partner in the investment company.

Angelo Gordon and Co. is a private investment firm. They have roughly US $28 billion under management as of 2017.[2] John M. Angelo and Michael L. Gordon founded the alternative investment management company in 1988.

In 2017, Gareth Henry participated in bringing two critical new hires on board at Angelo and Gordon[3]. Matthew Brody focuses on real estate. Terri Heruben concentrates her attention on Angelo and Gordon’s client service development. Heruben was previously with Barings Real Estate and was the leader of their real estate fund.

Talos Energy Bursts Into The Stock Exchange Due To $2 Billion Merger With Stone Energy

Talos Energy is a Houston-based company founded by Timothy Duncan, its current CEO. The funds used to start the company were acquired from Apollo Global Management and Riverstone Holding, with $600-million total being raised to start the company. The company is focused on engaging in development, exploration and the production of both oil and natural gas properties, with most of its research efforts being centralized in the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Coast. Talos Energy is led by previously mentioned Chief Executive Officer Timothy Duncan, CFO Michael Harding II, COO Stephen E. Heitzman and the Executive Vice President of Exploration John A. Parker.

The oil and gas producer has been private since its inception, but recently that changed with a $2 billion merger with Louisiana’s Stone Energy last month. This deal has caused Talos Energy to go public and it is now being traded on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) as TALO. The deal has created a humongous offshore oil and energy producer and has changed Talos Energy from a firm purely focused on the Gulf of Mexico to a fierce competitor in both the US and Mexico. CEO Tim Duncan is ecstatic with this deal and states that it is a combination that will cause waves in the industry. Previous backers of Talo will now own 63 percent of the combined company and Stone stock owners will own 37 percent.

Tim Duncan has also gone further in his praises for the deal and claims that the company is in an amazing position to seize potential opportunities in their industry. The specific opportunities he is mentioning are a high quality asset portfolio and a capitals program focused on returns in their operations. Talos Energy has also recently found Zama offshore of Mexico and has claimed a few of the first offshore bids with partners in the process of Mexico’s energy reform.
