Norb Vonnegut, a Partner of Fiduciary Wealth Partners, spearheads our efforts to communicate the best practices of fiduciaries as well as FWP’s take on issues that affect investor wealth.
Prior to joining FWP, Norb spent over two decades in wealth management as an author, industry commentator, and Managing Director in an international practice with over $1 billion in assets under management.
He writes a column for The Wall Street Journal, which addresses industry issues affecting both investors and investment professionals and which appears regularly in the Wealth Adviser section online. He is also the author of three financial industry novels, profiled in the The New York Times.
In addition, Norb recently completed his first, full-length non-fiction work, a defensive handbook for investors that probes issues of trust, transparency, indexing relative to active money management, and cybercrime among other topics. His book also spotlights simple-to-use tools available to all investors. He speaks regularly at industry conferences, has appeared on Bloomberg, MSNBC, and given a TEDx talk about how to avoid financial predators.
Norb grew up in Charleston, South Carolina and still self-identifies as a Southerner, even though he has spent most of his academic and professional career in the Northeast. He is a graduate of Phillips Exeter, Harvard College, and Harvard Business School. Norb and his wife Mary live in Narragansett, RI with their dog Lucy and visit their two children as often as possible.
