Gianpaolo (‘GP’ to most) works differently to much of the industry. Initial conversations deliberately try to avoid all matters financial. He is far more interested in the aspects of your life that make up who you, and your family are, and importantly, how you’d like your future to look. Ultimately, he works with you to help understand and plan how your specific aspirations can be better aligned with your finances. This allows your planning and decisions then made with greater clarity.
Gianpaolo was a founding member of the Institute for Financial Wellbeing and was in the first cohort to attain the Certificate in Financial Wellbeing. He uses these insights when providing strategic, reality-focused advice.
He is particularly attuned to the needs of successful executives and business owners – especially at life’s key transitions. Interactive cashflow modelling is used to help bring context to your decision-making process and bring to life your specific aspirations during your future life stages.
GP has worked in financial services since 2001 and became a Chartered Financial Planner in 2008. He founded Higgins Fairbairn Advisory LLP, one of fewer than 300 Chartered Financial Planning firms, in 2010 before merging with Saltus in May 2022.
Outside work, GP spends much of his spare time with his wife Aoife and their two children in rural Bedfordshire with their dopey chocolate lab. He is a youth rugby coach at Ampthill RUFC as well as being a partner in the kids’ taxi service.
