Junonia Partners provides Outsourced CFO and Controller level services to investment advisors of hedge funds, private equity funds, and venture capital funds. Upon realizing the value and importance of having a strong back office partner, Junonia was founded to focus on providing the highest level of partnership: treat each client's business as if it was your own.
