Fragasso #4 on Forbes Best-in-State list, 2019

Fragasso has been ranked the #4 advisor on the 2019 Forbes Best –In-State list! We advanced from our ranking in 2018!

Forbes ranks Fragasso Financial Advisors #4 in the state of PA on its 2019 Best-in-State Wealth Advisors List. The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
