Former Mayor Mark joins forces with AFH


Clients of a popular Hertfordshire financial adviser can look forward to seeing even more of him, now he’s joined AFH.

Hertfordshire born and bred, Mark Hughes has lived and worked in Royston for more than 35 years. He was a senior financial consultant at Lloyds Bank before starting his own financial services business 20 years ago.

Mark’s hard work and client focus paid off, and he now has around 300 clients across the Home Counties and London.

He is a member of the Economic Research Council, Britain’s oldest economic think-tank, and has appeared on the BBC’s Moneybox and Newsnight programmes, as well as in the press, discussing investment and pension matters.

Mark said:

“I wanted to make sure my clients got the benefits of the latest developments in the industry, but keeping abreast of the changes takes time, and I didn’t want to spend less time with my clients as a result.

“The solution was to join forces with AFH, so I’m free to devote all my efforts to delivering the best outcomes for my clients, supported by the in-house expertise and administration team that AFH provides.”

AFH chief executive Alan Hudson said:

“It’s always great to meet a fellow-spirit, and I knew Mark and I saw things the same way – putting clients at the heart of everything we do. So I’m delighted to welcome him to the AFH community and look forward to working with him to deliver the best of his clients and the many new clients we’ll be looking to bring on board.”

Mark was elected to Royston Town Council in 1986 and North Herts District Council in 1988 and is a former Mayor of Royston and district council chairman. He has also served as a school governor and an independent member of the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner joint audit committee.

Married with two grown-up children, Mark has been a Tottenham Hotspur season-ticket holder for more than 25 years.
