PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL — (January 28, 2021) Fulcrum Partners, one of the nation’s leading and largest executive benefits advisories, announces it has been purchased by OneDigital Investment Advisors in a strategic acquisition. OneDigital Investment Advisors, a registered investment advisor and a wholly owned subsidiary of OneDigital, is one of the nation’s leading strategic advisory firms. Focused on streamlining benefits solutions for employers of all sizes, OneDigital pursued the acquisition of Fulcrum Partners as part of its expansion into the nonqualified deferred compensation plan market.

Bruce Brownell, Managing Director and Partner, along with Directors and Partners Joe Thompson and G. Scott Cahill, founded Fulcrum Partners in 2007. Bruce said, “For more than a decade, we have continually grown and adapted to serve our client’s needs and the industry’s evolving parameters. In making the choice to become part of the OneDigital team, we will be positioned to bring to all our valued clients a broader and deeper base of tools, services and support.”

“By adding these specialists to our team,” said Vince Morris, President, OneDigital Retirement + Wealth, “we are excited to expand our holistic benefits offerings to include executive compensation strategies. Our focus is on getting everyone to and through retirement. The team of industry professionals from Fulcrum Partners adds an additional level of strategy to support business and ensure that we are providing individualized financial advice and tax planning assistance to all.”

Steve Broadbent, Fulcrum Partners Managing Director and Partner, said, “Our clients, peers and vendors have told us that they have been unaware that Fulcrum Partners was in this growth transition. That’s because the process has been, and will continue to be, seamless.”

Managing Director and Partner Scott Cahill added, “Most importantly, our client relationships are not changing. We will continue to operate with the responsiveness, latitude and individualized service we have always provided and the same one-on-one client engagement. But now, as part of the OneDigital team, we’ll have broader and deeper resources to draw on when delivering creatively designed executive benefits solutions.”

With the acquisition of Fulcrum Partners, OneDigital’s comprehensive advisory services and market-leading solutions are offered in more than 100 offices and an additional 45-plus retirement wealth offices across the United States.
