Pinnacle Investments, LLC Lands Three Advisors on AdvisorHub’s Inaugural “Advisors to Watch” Ranking


September 22, 2022 – Syracuse,  NY – This week AdvisorHub announced the official results of their first ever Advisors to Watch lists. After sifting through hundreds of applicants, three advisors representing Pinnacle Investments, LLC were placed on the inaugural list. Mark Nardella, MBA, CFP®, President and Financial Advisor ranked #39 in the Top 50 Solo Practices; Dario Vacco, Financial Advisor representing the Eagle Group ranked #34 in the Top 100 Fastest Growing Advisors; and John Buss, Financial Advisor representing the Empire Advisory Group ranked #45 in the Top 100 Fastest Growing Advisors.

According to AdvisorHub, advisors were ranked on a 100-point scale in three categories: scale is a function of assets, production and quality of service; growth is year-over-year change in assets, clients and production; and professionalism includes regulatory record, community involvement and team makeup.

The AdvisorHub’s publication of the list states, “our inaugural ‘Advisors to Watch’ ranking is an attempt to find quality in the 99% who are on their way towards ‘Top Advisor’ status. Our approach still considers fundamental metrics like assets and production, but we counterbalance those metrics with growth. We want to recognize growers and movers – advisors who are actively attracting new clients and growing their portfolios.”

“I am so happy to see Mark, Dario and John’s hard work and dedication to their clients rewarded by AdvisorHub,” says Ben Quilty, CEO of Pinnacle Investments. “Our goal is to give our advisors the tools and resources they need to help their clients succeed. They are an inspiration to all of us and I look forward to the many great things ahead for them.”
