Buck Consultants remained an independent organization until 1997 when it was acquired by Mellon Financial. The Buck Consultants brand name was scrapped in late 2003 when Mellon unified various business lines under the name Mellon Human Resource & Investor Solutions. Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) acquired Mellon's human resource businesses in 2005 and reintroduced the Buck Consultants brand. In 2010, Xerox acquired ACS for $6.4 billion. Buck Consultants was later rebranded as "Buck Consultants at Xerox".
In May 2018, Conduent announced that it would sell the Buck Consultants portion of its business to H.I.G. Capital, starting the clock on a 90-day transition period in which it hoped to complete the sale. Immediately after the close of the deal on August 13, the business became known as Buck.
