                                          ACQUISITION OF SR WEALTH MANAGEMENT

AFH  Financial  Group  plc is pleased to announce the acquisition  of the assets of SR Wealth Management Limited  ("SR 
Wealth Management").   Today's acquisition marks AFH's first of the calendar year and the Company's seventh since  the 
implementation of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) 12 months ago. 

SR Wealth Management, which is located in Stoke-on-Trent, has approximately GBP 10.2million of funds under  management 
and had recurring income of GBP 63,000 in its most recent financial year.  Martin Bradshaw, the owner and vendor of SR 
Wealth  Management,  has decided to leave the industry on completion of this deal  and SR Wealth Management's  clients 
will in future be serviced by existing AFH advisers.  

The  consideration for the acquisition comprises an initial cash payment of GBP 94,500;  further consideration up to a 
maximum of GBP 105,000 may be payable over the 26 month period following the acquisition, depending on the performance 
of SR Wealth Management during that period. 

Commenting on today's acquisition, Alan Hudson, Chairman and Chief Executive of AFH, said: "As expected, RDR continues 
to  drive consolidation within the industry;  we remain committed to capitalising on this opportunity by making  well-
timed, select investments that complement our dynamic business. 

We  welcome  the  clients of SR Wealth Management and look forward to providing them with  the  high  quality  service 
consistently delivered by our professional team of advisers."
