The idea behind the establishment
During an interview with IdeaMensch, Gareth Henry explained how he got the idea. He has always been challenged by how finance and mathematics work together. He, therefore, developed an understanding of risk management and economics. This move was not smooth as he had to talk to colleagues, clients, and even strangers to gain a full understanding of their investment. He, therefore, started his career on investor relations and raising capital.
