Paychex Adds Dimensional Fund Advisor Options to Open Fund Select and Advisor Select Platforms

Rochester, N.Y. (September 10, 2012) – Paychex, Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of 401(k) recordkeeping services for America’s businesses, today announced the addition of Dimensional Fund Advisor funds to the Paychex Open Fund Select and Advisor Select platforms.

“Paychex is constantly working to help small businesses expand retirement offerings” said Paul Davidson, director of product management at Paychex. “These Dimensional funds are highly respected in the financial advisor community. We are delighted that we can now offer them to clients as part of their 401(k) plans to help them and their employees reach their retirement goals.”

Dimensional Fund Advisor funds, which include over 40 institutional fund choices, are best suited for clients with fee-based advisors or accounts not using the services of a broker.

These funds are now available to existing and new Paychex clients using both the Paychex Open Fund Select and Advisor Select platforms.
