Barry Rhonemus

Managing Partner, Founder


Barry has over 20 years of experience serving the needs of ultra-high-net-worth clients, family offices, foundations and corporate entities. As a private bank wealth advisor for over a decade, he not only managed the relationships of the bank’s most important clients, but he also worked with other private bank professionals, developing strategies to solve diverse financial situations. His work ranged from the banking, credit, insurance and trust areas to investment management and family office—ranking him in the Top 10 of Wells Fargo Private Bank Wealth Advisors. Barry’s decision in 2010 to establish Juncture Wealth Strategies was part of his continued effort to bring innovative, customized solutions to the complex needs of ultra-high net worth individuals, families and nonprofits. He continues to enjoy addressing all of his clients' unique needs in the professional and caring manner that has been his hallmark for over two decades.

What Inspires My Work

The ability to connect with clients personally as well as professionally. I enjoy tackling the complex needs of people’s financial lives. I am passionate about providing succinct, easy-to-implement solutions that not only deliver financial clarity but also benefit our clients’ lives—and their family’s lives.

What Inspires My Life

Being a committed and loyal husband, step-father, grandfather and friend. To lead a life filled with honesty, integrity and high moral standards. To lead by example, giving back to those who have supported me along the way and assisting those who are in need.
