About Me

Joshua "Josh" Lutkemuller joined Strongside in September of 2021 and assumed the position of Head of Investment Strategy as of January 1, 2022 in line with his registration with the state of California.

Prior to joining Strongside Josh proudly served six years in the Army National Guard. Josh also gained three years of experience as a Mortgage-Backed Securities Trader at large bank in their Capital Markets division. Josh was responsible for hedging a $15B residential loan portfolio using TBAs and other derivative instruments. Josh describes himself as service oriented and has bridged his military service into serving clients as their primary guide to financial independence. He is dedicated to providing investment management and real estate consulting services to his clients.

Josh broadened the reach of Strongside to serve not only ESOP participants but many other individuals, families, and members of the military.

My husband and I have been working with Josh since the beginning, about 4 years. He has always been responsive and attentive to our needs that are always changing with different stages in life. He is very well informed and is easy to talk to when learning and trying to understand new investment strategies or saving strategies. He manages expectations well and creates personalized plans for our future goals. We are very happy and stress less about our money and attaining our goals with Josh as our advisor.
