For the 15th time, Fragasso Financial Advisors has been named one of the “Best Places to Work in Western PA” by the Pittsburgh Business Times. The firm was ranked overall and No. 2 in the medium category.

“The most critical element in creating a great work place is encouraging open and honest communication between all employees,” said founder, chairman and CEO Robert Fragasso. “Employee retention is a huge priority for us. When we create an enjoyable work environment, we find our employees are happier, more productive and more likely to stick with our firm. This recognition would not be possible without the talented group of professionals at Fragasso, and we’re extremely grateful for this latest honor.”

As part of the Best Places to Work program, the firm participates in an employee satisfaction survey to gauge employee engagement, advocacy and retention rates. More than 150 area companies applied to participate in this year’s Best Places to Work program. To qualify, employees from each company participated in an online survey. Omaha, Neb.-based Quantum Market Research satisfaction surveys formed the basis for the final ranking scores used in this program.

Barron’s ranks Fragasso Financial Advisor’s founder, chairman and CEO Robert Fragasso as a top advisor on its 2022 list of America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors. Fragasso ranked #1 in western Pennsylvania for 3 years running! Fragasso ranked #4 in the state in 2022.

The rankings are based on data provided by around 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. Factors included in the rankings: assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities.

Ranked #4 in the Nation, March 2021
Ranked #15 in the Nation, May 2020
Ranked #65 in the Nation, April 2019
Ranked #28 in the Nation, May 2018

Fragasso has been named as a Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers by InvestmentNews for the 4th consecutive year! We have ranked #4 in the mid-size company category. The surveys are collected from firms across the nation, and only 75 make the list!

Winners are selected from a two-part survey completed by employers and employees. Employers report their organization’s workplace policies, practices and demographics, and employees complete a survey designed to measure the employee experience. Scores from the employee survey represent three-quarters of the weight of the final rankings.
