He is a dean's list graduate, with distinction, from the Schulich School of Business at York University. He has an Honours BBA with a dual specialization in Finance and Economics.

When he is not analyzing economic data and reading financial statements, Gianluca enjoys helping entrepreneurs with their business, playing foosball and tennis, and spending quality time with his close family and friends.

Different from other advisors, Gianluca is able to choose from a variety of investments around the world allowing him to uniquely serve each client's needs.

"You need an advisor who is financially aware and emotionally rational, one that is continuously developing and challenging their understanding of the markets, and who finds personal meaning and fulfillment in their work for others."
