Before becoming an entrepreneur and recording a lot of accomplishments, Maria Bartiromo’s husband, Jonathan Steinberg, worked in an investment banking firm, Bear Stearns & Co. Inc., from 1986 to 1988. He worked as an analyst in the company’s mergers and acquisitions department.

After three years at Sterns, Steinberg was ready to launch out on his own and decided to begin with starting a publishing company with money he inherited from his father’s stocks. Thanks to his father’s experience, young Jonathan Steinberg, fondly called Jono developed an early interest stocks and began developing trading skills as early as 13 years old.

Jonathan Laurence Steinberg is the son of Manhattan natives, Barbara Herzog and Saul Phillip Steinberg. His father, who died on December 7, 2012, was a known American businessman/financier who became a billionaire in his 40s. He served as the chief executive of the Manhattan-based property and casualty insurance company named Reliance Group Holdings while he was alive.

His wealth took a dip in the late 90s due to bad investment decisions. Saul Steinberg bought a 17,000-square-foot apartment on Park Avenue in Manhattan that previously belonged to John D. Rockefeller Jr. When his wealth was hit, he liquidated the property for not less than $29 million.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Jonathan attended The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, he dropped out to work on Wall Street and has grown to become a successful business mogul.

His first attempt at publishing was buying the tabloid Penny Stock Journal which he renamed Individual Investor and became the Editor-in-Chief, he later bought another publication called America’s Fastest Growing Companies. He went public with his finance media company in 1991 which he named Individual Investor Group, Inc. He served as the Chairman and CEO of the Group.

In the aftermath of the dot-com crash of 2000, Jonathan rebranded Individual Investor Group to an exchange-traded fund (ETF) known as WisdomTree Investments. He has held the position of the company’s President since August 2012.

Wisdom Tree currently has three different aspects – WisdomTree Asset Management, Inc., WisdomTree Investments, and WisdomTree Trust- and Jonathan is at the helm of affairs in all of them. The aim of Steinberg’s WisdomTree is to acquire $100 billion in assets, in 2018, The Financial Times reported that WisdomTree has managed over $60 billion in assets.

Does Maria Bartiromo Have Children?

The idea was Maria’s and her husband agreed to it. In 2012, the veteran Fox journalist revealed that after all these years, she does not regret her decision to be in marriage without a child. Judging by their longevity in marriage, this has obviously not affected their relationship. Though the couple is without kids, they are parents to a dog named Dusty.

The Mariagate Scandal was Insufficient To Cause Cracks In Their Marriage

She had been said to accept a ride in Citigroup Inc.’s private jet in order to spend time with Thompson.

Instead, only good news seems to emerge from their marriage. In Maria’s interview with DuJour Magazine, the journalist revealed that she and her husband love to unwind with outdoor activities, including biking and walking along the beach near their home in Westhampton in Long Island, New York.

This was where the couple spent their lockdown during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic. It was from this home that she anchored her Fox Business and Fox News shows when the state was in a total lockdown.
