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.
Fragasso recognized as Best Places to Work by the Pittsburgh Business Times!
“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.

Ranked #1 in western Pennsylvania in 2021
Barron’s ranks Fragasso Financial Advisor’s founder, chairman and CEO Robert Fragasso as a top advisor on its 2021 list of America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors. Fragasso ranked #1 in western Pennsylvania and #5 in the state.
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.
