Quest’s two advisers left the firm on completion of the acquisition, and AFH staff have already taken over client relationships.

AFH chief executive Alan Hudson says: “We continue to offer IFA businesses the opportunity to either become part of a larger group or to allow the principals of those businesses the ability to realise value as they retire.”
