“After researching and interviewing over 15 firms coast to coast, looking for the products, services and tools my clients want and need, I selected Securities America,” said Pintaric in an announcement on his LinkedIn account. “I did so not only because they offered everything I was looking for in those regards, but they also have the same level of commitment and approach to our industry and the responsibilities we share.”
