Questions about Wealth Management?
At Fragasso, we understand that the need for unbiased and solid financial advice is more important than ever. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, we are beholden only to our clients. Understanding your personal and financial goals allows us to help you navigate the challenges and obstacles that may surface on the way to those goals. The foundation of our firm’s success is our unique structure. Working together, a team of experienced professional advisors provide you comprehensive, personalized financial services that aren’t often available in the traditional brokerage firm setting.
Your personal wealth management team consists of:
- Financial advisor
- Portfolio manager
- Client account specialist
Your financial advisor answers all of your financial planning questions, and is your main contact. Your portfolio manager handles trades, processes orders and distributes funds for your accounts. The portfolio manager is also a part of our centralized portfolio management team that handles all in-house research and trading. Your client account specialist is your contact for check requests, forms and statement copies. Each personal wealth management team combines its knowledge, time-tested methodology, and experience to help our clients achieve their goals. We also work with your other professional service providers like attorneys and accountants to make sure you are receiving the most comprehensive financial picture.
The Benefits of Working with Fragasso

Each client has a team consisting of a financial advisor, portfolio manager and administrative specialist, who are all focused on keeping your goals on track with continued analysis, controls and on-going review of your portfolio, managed centrally by our in-house, credentialed Portfolio Management Department.
This simple structure helps ensure your investment priorities are in alignment with the implementation of your asset allocation. You benefit from uniformity of advice and while your financial advisor is your primary point of contact, there is a team of professionals who collaborate to help ensure seamless management of your assets.
We are a registered investment advisor, which means we adhere to a fiduciary standard of care that requires us to serve our clients’ best interests at all times. We do not have proprietary funds or products and we will only choose the investment vehicle or service that fits your needs.(Registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training, nor any regulatory endorsement or approval of our investment advisory services.)
