Michael Bonevento


Managing Partner


29 Years of Experience


I enjoy golf, but like many other busy professionals, I am not able to play as often as I would like and I am not as skilled as I would like to believe.
I enjoy reading and often find myself “juggling” 2 – 3 books at one time. While I enjoy all topics, I am especially fond of topics related to the financial services industry and “true life” mysteries.
I enjoy spending time with my wife (Lisa) & my children (Olivia & Maxwell) doing most anything.
I enjoy wine and I am the proud owner of a small, eclectic collection that I often share with clients & friends.
