Beese Fulmer Private Wealth Management, a Canton, Ohio-based registered investment adviser managing about $675 million in discretionary assets, will acquire MacNealy Hoover Investment Management, an RIA also based in Canton and managing about $240 million, in October.
The move will make Beese Fulmer one of the largest money managers in Northeast Ohio based on assets under management, the firm said in a release.
Both firms use Schwab as their principal custodian, said Ryan Fulmer, CEO.
"We explored multiple transition possibilities," said Harry MacNealy, CEO of MacNealy Hoover. "Sometimes, it just takes a while to recognize the solution is right under your nose. In our case, just four blocks south."
