Gareth is a renowned name in the finance industry due to his successful career as an investor, entrepreneur and math expert. In February 2019, he was appointed as the Managing Director at an alternative investment firm holding its offices all over the world.
As a Heriot-Watt University alum, Henry has also went forward and established a bursary program for current students of the revered university.
Gareth Henry Access Bursary
The Gareth Henry Access Bursary is set up at the Heriot-Watt University. It comes in the form of a funded undergraduate scholarship.
Apart from the financial reward, the Gareth Henry Access Bursary also comes with a direct mentorship from Henry himself for selected students. The mentorship will be provided in the form of one call per term, which means there could be three calls per year.
This way, students could not only get the required finding for their studies, but also get some much needed help directly from an investment expert.
It was also mentioned that the mentorship wouldn’t be limited to the calls alone, but Henry would try to provide ongoing help as the students need it.
The drive for the mentorship program seems to be derived from Henry’s own experience. During a recent interview, he had mentioned the importance of mentorship and how he still turns to his mentors for advice from time to time.
Mentorship is the Key to Becoming Successful
Gareth Henry mentioned that according to him, the one key point that has contributed towards his success is mentor-ship.
He mentioned that he himself has around 20 mentors, whom he contacts whenever he needs their sage advice. He stated that while it takes some work to accept that you need a proper leader to support you when you need it, it is worth the effort. It’s because just by observing other people and their drive for success, you can implement the same formula yourself (as Henry did for himself).
With the way that Gareth Henry has shaped his career, it seems that this advice could definitely work wonders for young people. Gareth Henry on Quantitative Investing
