AM17: Tim Pagliara, Founder & Chairman of CapWealth

Today, host Rusty Shelton and Founder & Chairman of CapWealth Tim Pagliara talk about how he differentiated his financial advising firm in a mid-market city by investing funds in the right choices, not the easy ones that often give instant gratification. Tim also dives into the concept behind his new book, Another Big Lie, and how to “focus your focus”. About Tim Pagliara: Tim Pagliara is the Founder, Chairman, and Chief Investment Officer of CapWealth, an independent, SEC-registered investment advisory firm based near Nashville, Tennessee. Named by Forbes Magazine as the #1 Financial Advisor in Tennessee in 2020, he’s previously earned the top spot on the publication’s list of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors in two of the last three years. In 2018, he was named #1 in Tennessee by both Forbes and Barron’s Magazines. He’s appeared on top in Tennessee on Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors six times over the last seven years. Throughout his 30-plus years in the financial industry, Tim has developed a standard of business rooted in transparency and integrity – executed through his trademarked principles of Sophisticated Simplicity® and Provable Integrity® – and he believes Americans deserve this same transparency and integrity in all business dealings. For more than a decade now, Tim has been fighting for the rights of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shareholders after the U.S. Treasury Department placed the government-sponsored entities into conservatorship, sweeping their profits right out of investor hands and into the pockets of the government. In 2014, Tim founded Investors Unite, the organization representing these investors and seeking full restitution of the dividends seized. In his book, Another Big Lie, Tim exposes the story the government doesn’t tell … a story of crimes and cover ups in what has been called the biggest financial heist in U.S. history. This is the story of how crooked business stole billions of dollars from the American dream of homeownership – and got caught.
