Gareth Henry is a man who knows how to crunch the numbers. He went to school at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He graduated in 200 with a degree in actuarial mathematics. After he finished college he was able to travel around the world for a company named Schroders. In 2007, he brought his talents to the United States and worked for Fortress Investment Group. He has now become the managing director of the company and is making sure to grow the company at a steady pace. One particular place that he is looking at for 2018 is the country of Brazil.
One of the reasons that Gareth Henry finds the country of Brazil is the low-interest rates of the country. He says that with the election in the country coming up soon that the rates should continue to stay low for a while when the election is completed. A few other countries that Gareth Henry is watching closely are Japan and Scotland.
He says that Japan was one of the best investments last year because of Abenomics. This simply refers to the new stimulus that Japan brought out last year for the citizens. The plan was named after Japan’s current Prime Minister. His name is Shinzo Abe.
Gareth Henry also thinks that Scotland is a good choice to invest in. Even though the country has had problems like the failed vote for independence. In spite of this setback he still sees some solid opportunities in the market for Scotland in the next year. He also said to watch for countries that are undergoing political change too.
Even though the markets may look good right now the bets that Fortress has placed haven’t been received well at all. The portfolio for the company is down almost six percent so far. This is according to the latest filings from Fortress.
Gareth Henry is only one of many executives from Fortress and he is looking at the market as it stands now. There is still a long way to go before the year is out and his predictions could be right.
