“Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.”
– Abraham Lincoln
In our minds, truer words have never been spoken. The service and counsel we provide for clients is a reward in and of itself.
However, when reputable third parties consistently recognize our work, it validates for our clients and potential clients that our efforts, methods and results continue to be among the industry’s best – time and again.
For the third consecutive year, Barron’s has selected our firm as one of the top 1000 independent wealth advisors in the country.
Not only were we in the top 1000 nationally, we were ranked No. 3 in Pennsylvania after finishing fifth last year.
Barron’s based its rankings on data from more than 4,000 advisors, factoring in components such as assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work.
While we are honored by this latest ranking, what makes all of us at Fragasso Financial Advisors proud is that these Barron’s rankings don’t exist in a vacuum. Rather, they are part of a larger pattern of excellence in wealth management this year demonstrated by our No. 13 national ranking from Registered Rep magazine (which is based on assets under management) and our selection by the Pittsburgh Business Times as one of the best places to work.
We value our workplace culture and environment just as much as the services we provide for our clients. A satisfying office atmosphere translates into better productivity. Better productivity leads to better results. That’s nothing novel. It’s just good business – the type of business we hope you continue to choose as the best option in securing your long-term financial and retirement security.
Thank you for helping us strive for excellence in how we treat each other and serve you.
