Henry has held positions with some of America’s largest pension providers and mutual fund companies. Prior to joining Lighthouse Henry ran his own investment management firm.

Henry uses a mixture of both technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis to guide investment decisions. His approach is to keep up with changing global market dynamics.
