PagnatoKarp Named Best Multi-Family Office ($2.5B to $5B AUM/AUA) at 2020 FWR Awards

RESTON, Va., March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- PagnatoKarp was named 2020 BEST MULTI-FAMILY OFFICE ($2.5B to $5B AUA/AUM) at the 7th annual FAMILY WEALTH REPORT Awards. One of four firms to be shortlisted in the category, PagnatoKarp earned the coveted top award in the competitive family office space. The firm has $4.8 billion assets under advisement¹ and is frequently ranked on top wealth advisor lists by Barron's and Forbes, as well as being a Best Place to Work².

"We are laser focused on helping protect and empower our clients each and every day, especially during volatile times," says Paul Pagnato, CEO Founder at PagnatoKarp. "This prestigious award showcases the incredible teamwork from our firm, partners, and advisors as we continue to provide innovation and leadership to the families we serve."

Showcasing 'best of breed' providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the Family Wealth Report Awards were designed to recognize companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have 'demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2019'. According to FWR, these awards recognize the very best in the private client industry, with 'independence', 'integrity' and 'genuine insight', the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.

Stephen Harris, CEO of ClearView Financial Media and Publisher of WealthBriefing, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: "The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants' submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature."

PagnatoKarp was previously named 2018 Best Multi-Family Office (New Entrant) and was a 2019 Finalist in the $2.5B to $5B AUM/AUA category.
