The McIntire School’s Center for Investors and Financial Markets (CIFM) welcomed Paul Pagnato, Founder and CEO of PagnatoKarp, Jan. 29 for a discussion with students on the financial challenges that come with living longer.
Pagnato was the most recent finance expert to present in the CIFM’s Sands Capital Professional Speaker Series, which explores timely and relevant financial topics and features personal and professional experiences that highlight the many facets of investing in an interconnected world. Produced in partnership with Sands Capital Management, the conversations expand students’ learning opportunities and provide them with valuable real-world perspectives.
“Advances in artificial intelligence, genomics, nutrition, and healthcare are rapidly contributing to longer lifespans,” says Pagnato. “Our personal financial well-being needs to keep pace with these advances, so we may truly enjoy the gift longevity brings: time.”

Founder of the TrueFiduciary® Institute, a nonprofit that aims to positively impact 1 million lives through digital education, Pagnato also serves on the institute’s board of directors.
