Toussaint’s Bio


In the world of corporate finance and investment management, Toussaint Gaskins is a true pioneer. As the managing director of Inove Asset Management in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, Gaskins boasts more than 15 years experience in investment management, sales, corporate finance, marketing and strategic planning.

Inove is an investment advisory firm that consults institutional and private clients in asset management, comprehensive financial planning, retirement planning, estate planning, risk analysis and portfolio diversification.

Prior to founding Inove, Gaskins, a native of Washington, D.C., was a principal affiliate of a regional investment banking and securities firm in Maryland. He previously held director’s positions at an institutional investment advisory firm and regional investment banking and securities firm, both in Washington, DC.

A graduate of Morehouse College, Gaskins dove into the unpredictable waters of finance in 1993 when he landed a position with the Chapman Company in Baltimore. It was the beginning of what has turned out to be a long and illustrious career that, to this day, continues to include new and innovative challenges.

Today, Gaskins is known throughout the financial world as a results-oriented professional and is recognized as a respected consensus builder and value capture strategist adept in the use of tactical alliances and targeted marketing campaigns. In 2008, he was profiled in the money section of The World Almanac For Kids. In addition, Gaskins also championed the creation and passage of Maryland Senate Bill 606, which addressed the issue of minority business enterprise participation in state procured brokerage and investment management services. In 2009 and 2010, he served as a public policy advisor to the Legislature of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

While he was a member of a New York Stock Exchange member firm’s Private Client Group and their Financial Services MVP Club, Gaskins increased revenue by 300% over a four-year period. As Vice President of an institutional investment management advisory firm, he increased assets under management in excess of 1000% within a three-year timeframe.

Over the years, Gaskins has not only applied his financial know-how in the corporate world but in the public sector as well, often donating his time and considerable talents to aid others. He has volunteered with The City of Bowie Advisory Planning Board, the National Association of Securities Professionals, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., Community of Hope AME Church, United States/Africa Chamber of Commerce, Bowie State University Center for Community Economic Development and the Druid Hill YMCA.

Gaskins’ latest accomplishment is the release of his book, “The Personal Finance Kit,” a practical financial management resource guide. Gaskins says the book is designed to provide everyday people with the necessary tools to improve their personal financial situation.
