Anthony Cipolla


Owner | Financial Advisor

Anthony Cipolla started Cipolla Financial Advisors in 2012, because he is a passionate fan of money. He loves the risk/reward system of the markets, the incredible power of leverage, and understanding how to maximize tax efficiency. Most of all, he loves how clarity and confidence around finances can give people greater freedom and the ability to enjoy their lives. (Finding a loose Jackson or two in between the sofa cushions isn’t bad, either.)

He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Sonoma State University with a with an emphasis in Finance and Economics. He also holds his CLTC and LUTCF certifications*. For over twenty years, Anthony Cipolla has been helping his clients live the best life possible with the money they have. Through planning and education, he strives to empower clients to make wise financial decisions.

Anthony lives in Windsor with his wife Nicole, and daughters Mia and Valentina. He spends most weekends either grilling and smoking meat or making “pies” in his pizza oven. He also enjoys biking through Windsor and taking his boat out onto Lake Sonoma (when there isn’t a drought). After spending many weekends at his daughters’ cheerleading competitions, it is his persisting ambition to do a cartwheel.
