Managing Director, Private Client Advisor

Professional Profile

Bari Scott Venetsky is a Managing Director and Private Client Advisor with Bank of America Private Bank in Florham Park, New Jersey. Bari looks to provide a different kind of client experience, one grounded in intensive customization, precise execution, and sustained leadership. With more than three decades as a confidante, mentor, and guide to high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families, Bari appreciates the distinctive priorities of the clients he serves. He leads a team of strong performers who work in concert to advance client objectives in multiple areas, including customized credit, banking, intergenerational wealth transfer, gifting and investment management.

Clients from diverse paths engage Bari's assistance. Many are business owners who have built their enterprises from the ground up. Others are senior executives whose financial affairs have taken on a complexity that has become demanding and time consuming. For these clients and others, Bari looks to unify strategy, execution and service, smoothing the path forward toward their priorities and intentions. He hand-selects a team of dedicated specialists for each client's situation, providing an additional layer of perspective, insight, and acumen. For Bari, the most important aspects of his approach are manifested in deeds, not words - his work ethic, responsiveness, and fiduciary commitment to the clients he serves.

Bari has worked at the Private Bank since 2006, providing him with the continuity and network to pinpoint meaningful client capabilities, enterprise wide. He began his wealth management career with Lehman Brothers, where he spent fifteen years addressing the needs of individuals, families, trusts, and not-for-profit organizations. Bari is a graduate of the Stern School of Business at NYU.

Bari and his wife, Evelyne, have three sons. Outside the office, Bari enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and reading.
