Bill Onorato understands that wealth represents more than just accounts and assets. When managed optimally, wealth allows families to pursue fulfillment and leave a positive legacy across generations. For nearly three decades, Bill has put this belief into practice and helped countless families thrive and flourish thanks to his diverse technical expertise and emotional intelligence.
Today, Bill leads RKL’s Family Office Practice, a comprehensive suite of services to manage the complex and significant needs of ultra-high-net-worth families. Since joining the firm in 2019, Bill spearheaded the development of the Family Office model, which encompasses advisory, administrative, support and investment capabilities.
Bill starts every new engagement by listening to the family’s concerns, priorities and aspirations. He then assembles the necessary cross-disciplinary team to address their needs, manage day-to-day tasks, highlight opportunities, cover all the details and keep everything aligned with their financial goals. Bill’s holistic and proactive approach gives families a greater sense of control, clarity and confidence that their wealth will be an asset, not a liability, to current and future generations.
“I earn my clients’ trust by breaking down complex issues, providing objective advice and supporting them along a course of action that will positively impact them today and for generations to come.”
Bill and his wife reside in Bel Air, Maryland. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, watching his daughter play lacrosse at Shenandoah University and the three Bs (beer, bourbon and BBQ).
