Henry has over 25 years’ experience in the risk management technology space. Originally in the FinTech sector focused on the emerging field of risk management in capital markets in the 1990's. He transferred these skills and experience to the energy commodity sector as the energy markets deregulated and was a founding team member of the leading technology company in the physical commodity risk management space.
The exposure to the business of commodity supply chains led to the development of risk management solutions oriented to physical movements.
