Leading lawyers look to AFH to deliver best for their clients


There’s a new name in Nottingham financial circles, now a local law firm has sold its financial advice business to leading UK wealth management group AFH.

For many years lawyers Freeeths offered financial advice through their own Meritor brand, but given the ever-increasing demands of regulation and their core focus on their legal practice, they felt their clients could be better served by a dedicated specialist financial planner.

They chose AFH, one of the largest independent financial advice groups in the UK.

AFH chief executive Alan Hudson said:

“We’re honoured that Freeths have chosen AFH to take care of their clients. AFH has the scale and in-house expertise to provide a top quality service to meet all their clients’ needs.

“We will continue to work with Freeths in the future to provide their clients with access to AFH advice and asset management.

“I know there are a number of similar financial services businesses linked to legal and audit practices and seen as non-core to those organisations. We believe that the mutual benefits of our arrangement with Freeths will demonstrate the commercial advantages of working with AFH to similar organisations and their clients in the future.”

As part of the £500,000 deal, financial adviser Karen Pincher will join AFH’s growing team of employed advisers; she will continue to work with Freeths and to look after her 275 clients across the East Midlands and the rest of the UK.

Karen started her career in financial services with Sharelink in Birmingham – just before the Black Monday stock market crash of October 1987. She later worked at Deutsche as an investment manager and at a specialist financial advice practice focused on the veterinary sector.

Karen said:

“I first decided to become a financial adviser because I saw how big a difference a really sound approach could make to clients’ outcomes. That’s why I’m so pleased to have the opportunity to join AFH and to give my clients the benefits of its expertise.”
