Andrew F. Paulus

Life Division Associate

Andrew joined Professional Wealth Associates in 2015, bringing with him 12 years of experience as a Financial Representative. In his role, Andrew helps guide his clients through the often-overwhelming process of creating an insurance and financial plan. He works with clients as an architect, educating and developing financial blueprints for individuals, families, and business owners to understand their objectives and prioritize goals.  Building a strong foundation is a central tenet in Andrew’s client process as only with a strong foundation will a portfolio have the best chances of weathering life’s challenging storms.  Additionally, Andrew designed the “The Children’s Life Portfolio,” a planning concept which affords new parents the ability to provide the financial resources necessary for their child’s milestones, such as funding a college education, purchasing their first car, putting a down payment on a home, and even potentially helping to fund the child’s retirement.  Other areas Andrew specializes in include Life & Health Insurance, Pension Max Concepts for both the NYPD and FDNY, Estate Planning, Long-Term Care Insurance, Special Needs Planning, Business Succession Planning, College Planning, Key Man Business Insurance, and Fixed Annuities.

In April of 2021, Andrew completed the coursework for the designation of CLTC (Certification for Long-Term Care) providing PWA clients a higher level of expertise in long-term care, including Medicare and Medicaid solutions for elder care planning.
