Paul Pagnato Educates Advisers On Best Fiduciary Practices

RESTON, Va., March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul A. Pagnato, Founder and CEO of PagnatoKarp, Transparent Family Wealth Advisors and TrueFiduciary™, was invited by FinancialPlanning to share his expertise with hundreds of advisers on best fiduciary practices and transitioning to a fiduciary-oriented practice. During the session, Paul outlined PagnatoKarp's evolution over the past 25 years into a company that is 100% fiduciary. He shared how best fiduciary practices require advisors to act in the best interests of their clients and demonstrated how PagnatoKarp has been successful in serving American entrepreneurs and ultra-high-net-worth families in this capacity.

"At PagnatoKarp, our 'Why' is to make it possible for every American to have access to a TrueFiduciary™ and we are working tirelessly to make it the industry standard," says Paul Pagnato. "We firmly believe that, despite any potential changes to the DOL's Fiduciary Ruling, clients will continue to seek out fiduciary advisers who offer complete transparency on fees and compensation.

"The train has already left the station," Pagnato continues, "and clients are seeking fiduciary advisers who act in their best interest. To remain competitive, advisers will need to transition their practices into a fiduciary-based model."

FinancialPlanning hosted the educational webinar, titled "Best Fiduciary Practices for Advisers", on March 14, 2017. Andrew Welsch, Senior Editor of On Wall Street, was the Moderator and Paul Pagnato co-hosted with Pamela Sandy, CEO & Founder of Confiance, LLC.
