CEO Founders Demand Transparency in Finance

CEO Founders: Demand Transparency® in Finance


How will finance, wealth management and fintech evolve and become more transparent in the future? Mic Mann, Co-CEO Singularity University South Africa, and Paul Pagnato, Founder PagnatoKarp and Co-Chairman Cresset, discussed the critical importance of Transparency® during the Exponential Finance Summit. Paul shared his personal journey from early beginnings to where the Transparency Wave has taken him. He highlights how the Great Recession in 2008/2009 led him to launch PagnatoKarp with a goal to fix structural issues in the financial industry. The True Fiduciary® Standards were created, which paved the way for the 6Ts of Exponential Transparency®.

Today, Transparency® is a driving factor behind every company flourishing with exponential growth and success. It is the #1 cultural key that every CEO Founder, entrepreneur and business owner should incorporate to help earn the trust of clients.
