Contact Stefan Saldivia, CFP®

Stefan joined Gerber Kawasaki Wealth Management as an investment advisor because he wanted to provide true independent and conflict-free financial advice to his clients. Before that, he worked for several prestigious financial services firms in different capacities but encountered many limitations in providing the best possible service to clients.

Stefan was mainly raised in France but also in other countries such as Chile, Ecuador and Algeria.He then moved to America to attend college and try a new cultural adventure. While going to school, he developed an interest for the entertainment industry that led him to work on many TV commercials and as a stunt double for Spiderman in the movie Spiderman 2. However, he truly wanted to work in a more fulfilling and sustainable profession and he discovered financial planning through an internship. By realizing how impactful financial decisions can make in people’s lives, he decided to make a career at helping people make the best financial decisions for their future.

As a fervent advocate for higher education, he completed a Master’s in Financial Planning and Taxation from Golden Gate University (GGU) and he also became a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) professional. His advanced knowledge allows him to better understand his clients and help them achieve their financial goals.

Stefan sees the world as a colorful mosaic where each country and its citizens play a significant role in making our human experience an unforgettable one. He encourages his clients to travel as much as possible so they can experience a more diverse living and gain a deeper perspective. As a true global citizen who is perfectly fluent in English, French and Spanish, Stefan enjoys working with international clients and learning from different cultures. He has a particular affinity for helping entrepreneurs, small business owners and creative professionals in the tech and entertainment industry. Whether someone is a dual citizen or is interested in working, studying or retiring abroad, Stefan can provide his cross-border planning expertise to help his clients make complex decisions.
