FSC Securities, a financial services firm representing more than 1,000 advisors across the country, today announced that New York-based firm Ferrigno Financial has selected to affiliate with the firm. Since the beginning of 2017, 583 advisors have joined Advisor Groups firms.

Ferrigno Financial was founded in 1969 by Douglas Ferrigno, with the goal of delivering exceptional financial planning services to individuals and families in the firm's Washingtonville, NY location. Today, Ferrigno offers retirement planning services for clients, and specializes in helping them make prudent investments with the goal that they won't outlive their incomes. The family-owned firm is run by financial advisors and brothers Patrick and Paul Ferrigno, and brother-in-law Gregory Mirecki. Ferrigno Financial has more than $300 million in client assets under administration.

"At Ferrigno Financial, our top priority is equipping clients who are about to retire – and clients who are currently retired –with a sound investment strategy designed to help them enter the next phase of their lives with financial confidence," said Patrick Ferrigno, owner and advisor, Ferrigno Financial. "We chose to join FSC because we know they'll empower us to keep providing quality retirement planning services to our clients, while encouraging the independence we've valued for so many years as a family-run firm."

Supported by Advisor Group, one of the nation's largest independent financial advisor networks, FSC provides independent advisors a flexible, open-architecture system that offers them full access to state-of-the-art technology, marketing and management systems – all of which can be fully adopted or integrated into an advisor's existing platform for an easy transition. Advisors who affiliate with FSC have access to dedicated field support, extensive investment solutions, and the choice of a custody/clearing option that best suits their needs.
