Gustavo is an Employee Benefits Advisor at Aston Sharp. Gustavo started his career in mortgage banking and in 2008 started a fund to purchase up the undervalued mortgage notes from banks across the country. Being the purchaser of the funds’ health plan – he quickly realized that most health plans lack transparency to claims data and ownership of claims funds.

When Gustavo left the fund in 2015 he shifted his focus to developing partnerships with independent TPAs and Captives to fix these problems he once faced. Gustavo now helps companies with 10-1000 employees put together a strategy for their health plan using alternative funding arrangements such as self-funding and captive programs to lower the bottom line.
