Pennsylvania-based Fulton Bank, a unit of Fulton Financial, has acquired local wealth management firm APS Wealth Management for an undisclosed amount.
Camp Hill-based APS Wealth Management was set up in 1994 by Mike Chwastyk.
At the time of deal closure on 4 October 2019, APS Wealth Management managed around $67m in assets.
Fulton’s wealth management arm Fulton Financial Advisors manages around $11bn in assets.
Commenting on the transaction, Fulton Financial president and COO Curtis Myers said: “Our purchase of APS Wealth Management is enabling Fulton to enhance our outreach to clients in central Pennsylvania.
“For 25 years, Mike Chwastyk and his team have built a strong client base by delivering highly personalised financial solutions. We’re delighted to unite to create a winning combination of outstanding service, solid reputation and world-class products, supported by our continued relationship with Raymond James.”
In January this year, Fulton Bank bought the wealth management operations of Forney Financial Solutions.
Altoona-based Forney was established in 2001 by John and Sherry Forney.
