My Team

  • Gigi

    My name is Gigi and I joined Sovereign Wealth in June 2023.  My main role involves meeting and greeting clients and making sure there are lots of treats in the office.  I do like a cheeky afternoon nap now and again. When I am not in the office, I enjoy long walks (off lead of course), giving lots of licks and kisses.

    I hope to see you in the office soon!
