New York (HedgeCo.Net) – A partner with top hedge fund service provider, Deloitte & Touche LLP has been appointed vice chairman and leader of the cross-functional investment management practice in the United States. Patrick Henry succeeds Cary Stier, who has expanded his role and will now lead Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited member firms’ investment management practice globally.
“Cyber threats, data, technology, managing risk and the pace of regulatory change are some of the key focus areas we see today in the investment management industry,” said Henry. “These are also areas that investors, regulators and directors are now increasingly asking about. My vision is that Deloitte leads from the front — not only to develop solutions to these evolving risks, but also to help our clients peer around the corners to spot the unforeseen risks of tomorrow. Deloitte’s investment management practice will focus on helping our clients on this front.”
In his new role, Henry will be responsible for the development and implementation of key sector initiatives across Deloitte’s audit, tax, consulting and advisory businesses and will work with senior management of the organization’s leading clients.
With 25 years of experience at Deloitte, Henry serves some of the biggest clients in the investment management, banking and securities, and real estate industries. For six years, Henry was based in the firm’s Hong Kong office and led Deloitte’s Asia-Pacific financial services industry practice. During this time, he also led the Deloitte member firm’s Greater China investment management practice. Henry also has extensive experience in U.S.Securities and Exchange Commission reporting (including initial public offerings) and in serving public companies with significant global operations. He is a licensed certified public accountant in New York and New Jersey.
