Helping Governance Committees navigate complex choices
Through its corporate retirement plan clients, the D’Aiutolo Malcolm & Associates Investment Consulting Group represents 35,000 plan participants across several states, including New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Ohio. Paul is the lead fiduciary consultant for the team’s retirement plan consulting clients, assisting companies in navigating complex choices and contractually providing fiduciary services. These include everything from fiduciary committee training to drafting and monitoring Investment Policy Statements (IPS), to overseeing the plan’s investments, to plan trend consulting and employee education services.
A passion for participant education
Paul and his team have a passion for getting participants engaged and on track for retirement, starting with a well-designed plan that results in high levels of participation and savings rates. Paul was raised in a blue-collar family with strong beliefs in personal accountability and hard work. He saw people in his family devote their lives to their employers, but fail to retire with dignity because they did not have the resources to prepare themselves well. Throughout his career, Paul encountered similar experiences too frequently: loyal, long-term employees unable to retire. These experiences have formed the foundation of the employee education services the D’Aiutolo Malcolm & Associates Investment Consulting Group provides to plan participants. The team has taken on a personal mission to work tirelessly, exhausting every effort to enable participants to address their retirement planning confidently.
Education and certifications
Paul has an Honors Associates degree in accounting from Monroe Community College and a B.S. in accounting from St. John Fisher College. He is a Chartered Retirement Plans SpecialistSM (CRPS®), an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®), a Certified Behavioral Financial Analyst (CBFA®) and a Certified Health Savings Advisor (CHSA®).
From 2017 through 2018, Paul served as the President of the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA), a subsidiary of the American Retirement Association, a $20 million Washington, D.C.-based association. He is currently a Board member for the American Retirement Association, which has allowed him to personally advocate for retirement security in America by spending time in Washington and meeting first-hand with members of Congress and representatives from the IRS and Department of Labor.
A former college athlete, Paul has coached house and travel soccer and Pop Warner football for nearly ten years. He also volunteers for Heritage Christian Services. Paul enjoys traveling and all outdoor activities, as well as word puzzles, including crosswords, Sudoku and word jumbles. He and his wife have raised three great children, Christopher (25), Alex (22) and Emma (18). As a recent empty nester, he awaits life’s next adventure.
