Paul A. Pagnato, Founder and CEO of PagnatoKarp, has been named by Barron’s as one of the Top 100 Financial Advisors of 2016. This is the fourth consecutive year Mr. Pagnato has been included on the list of America’s Top Financial Advisors. 

“As a firm, we are focused first and foremost on providing our clients with transparent, objective advice,” said Pagnato. “To have our efforts recognized by Barron’s is a distinct, greatly appreciated honor.”

The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the top-ranked advisor.
