Stefania Barbaglio / Founder

Stefania is known for her creativity, vivacious personality and entrepreneurial spirit. In early 2015, she founded Cassiopeia Services, a global boutique Investor & Public Relations Agency based in London. The company offers strategic Media Communications, Public and Investor Relations, as well as Branding and Marketing Strategies focussing on the new generation of social media and digital communications. 

Some call her the ‘Lara Croft’ of the small capital investment community. She’s become a well-known figure in the City of London, thanks to her outstanding experience in and innovative approach to media communications and networking. Her interest, knowledge and enthusiasm for seeking out investment opportunities has made her one of the best connected and most sought-after consultants in the City. She presents a regular online show – the Financial Fox – and personally hosts the Cassiopeia Symposia, a series of events specifically designed for companies and a selected audience of private investors to meet and network.

Stefania is an alumna of Oxford University where she studied Fintech & Financial Services Innovation and Blockchain Applications & Crypto assets strategy. She also has an MA in International Journalism from the University of Westminster, as well as 10 years-experience as a freelance producer for mainstream TV channels, including Bloomberg, the BBC & leading in-house Investor Relations & PR departments.

A dual British and Italian national, her determination to succeed was drilled into her by the family enterprise, a dairy, agriculture and renewable business just outside Milan. Her father is a well-known entrepreneur in the industry and has thus passed on his success formula: sacrifice, ambition, and integrity. The family business ethos of out-of the-box methods still solidly underpins her approach and business model.

Her work ethic is complemented by a rigorous and competitive fitness regime. Beyond Cassiopeia, Stefania nurtures her passion for technology and innovation, particularly blockchain applications and cryptocurrencies, and collaborates with UK Universities on mentoring programmes. She is also fashion influencer and a sponsored charity athlete, competing in triathlons and marathons across the world.
