Gaspar David Stinfil
Title: Vice President
Firm: Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co.
Gaspar David Stinfil sees his affinity for public finance as a natural result of growing up with parents who worked in the public sector.
A vice president at Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co., Stinfil deals with a variety of municipal issuers in general government, K-12 education, higher education, waste and wastewater, airport, port and transit. He has structured deals for clients including California, Connecticut, Illinois, Virginia and the ports of Los Angeles, Oakland and Seattle.
Growing up in Queens, New York, the son of Haitian immigrants, Stinfil said his parents instilled in him and his siblings a passion for work that provided a public good. His sister is a pediatrician and his brother works in education.
When he entered the world of finance, Stinfil said he chose to work with public sector clients. An Oakland resident, he enjoys seeing the results of that work in facilities that he helped get financing for such as the Bay Area Rapid Transit train system, which he rides regularly.
“I think the ability to see the tangible result of the projects I’m working on is what I really like the most in public financing,” he said.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading fiction and watching the Golden State Warriors.
