About CBK Wales


CBK Wales is made up of local, independent financial advisers who are educated in a wide range of financial services to meet everyone’s needs, such as Business to Business or Mortgage Advice.


We are committed to providing the right financial solutions for our clients, from investments to family protection and retirement planning. With offices in South Wales, CBK Wales works with businesses and individuals across the UK. Many of our clients come to us as a result of personal referrals, which we are extremely proud of. After all, if those we deal with trust us enough to recommend us to their closest family and friends, we feel we are not just achieving our goals, but theirs as well.

It's easy.

Why Choose Us?

Our team consists of experienced financial advisers who strive to help others through their financial lives.


Why Choose Independent Advisers?

Buying a house, deciding on your pension income and planning your finances are all major life decisions. They are also things you might not do very often. This means some of the biggest choices you ever make may be based on little or no prior experience, which isn’t a comforting thought.


That’s why many people will consult an independent financial adviser. Adviser’s charge fees of course, but good advice should, by definition, cost you less in the long term than no advice at all.

Experienced advisers provide you with confidence and peace of mind, using their professional expertise with financial matters to help you achieve your goals. Often, we can access products and deals in the market to leave you better off and save you time. We are unbiased and deliver an independent service in your best interest.
