AFH acquires Chartwell Associates


Discretionary wealth management firm AFH Financial Group has acquired independent financial adviser Chartwell Associates. 

Chartwell, which was founded in October 2001, has an active client bank of 1,200 clients and approximately GBP32m of funds under influence.

AFH is acquiring the assets of Chartwell, including Chartwell’s office in Egham, Surrey, from which Chartwell’s six advisers will continue to operate. The Egham office will be AFH’s first establishment outside Bromsgrove and provides the company with a platform from which it can continue its expansion in the South East of England.

The maximum consideration payable for the acquisition is GBP480,000 in cash, depending on Chartwell’s profitability in the 28 months following the acquisition.
This deal is AFH’s 10th acquisition since its IPO last year and takes the company’s total number of advisers to 97, up from 53 at the time of the IPO.
Alan Hudson (pictured), chairman and chief executive of AFH, says: "The acquisition of Chartwell continues our strategy of growing AFH both organically and by acquisition. This transaction also marks a strategically important step for the Company as it broadens our geographic presence, placing us closer to the market in London and the South East. We intend to use this presence to pursue further acquisition and recruitment opportunities in the region."
