CALGARY, Aug. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Aston Hill Financial Inc. ("Aston Hill" or the "Company") (TSX:AHF) is pleased to announce that a quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.0125 per Common Share will be payable on August 23, 2013 to all Aston Hill shareholders of record on August 14, 2013.  The resulting ex-dividend date for the Common Shares will be August 12, 2013.  This dividend is an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes.

On July 30, 2013, in connection with the Company's previously announced proposed acquisition of an 80% interest in Connor, Clark & Lunn Capital Markets Inc.
