In 2017, Fragasso hosted their very own radio show, which shared the same name as our magazine – The Advisor. The Advisor was a one-hour weekly radio show which aired on two local Pittsburgh radio stations – Q92.9 FM and KQV AM.  Chairman & CEO, Bob Fragasso, hosted the show alongside co-host and financial advisor, Michael Fertig.  For over forty weeks, the Fragasso team provided impactful discussions on financial planning topics and insights into the investment industry. We touched upon specialized topics, such as portfolio management and investment methodology, to common financial topics like retirement planning, college planning, social security and Medicare. The Advisor’s format included guest speakers from the Fragasso team, as well as, economists, successful business owners and entrepreneurs.

All of the shows are now available in audio and video format to our website visitors.  Search for the topic(s) that interest you and get started listening at your convenience!

Investing in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Rebalancing a portfolio may cause investors to incur tax liabilities and/or transaction costs and does not assure a profit or protect against a loss. Robert Fragasso was named as a 2015, 2016 and 2017 Barron’s Top Advisor. The Barron’s award is based on assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investing in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Municipal bonds are subject to availability and change in price. They are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise. Interest income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Municipal bonds are federally tax-free but other state and local taxes may apply. If sold prior to maturity, capital gains tax could apply. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
