“As a serving Royal Marine a former work colleague introduced me to Apex CB Financial Planning Ltd a couple of years ago.

I would highly recommend this company and Mr. Chris Ryan as he runs a very professional operation that has provided timely advice when needed especially with the current instability in the financial markets.”Sgt Mark Allen, Royal Marines, Poole

“My wife and I have used Chris for a considerable number of years to provide financial expertise which has been extremely accurate, trustworthy and useful in our financial planning. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris as a financial intermediary.”Mr A.J. Watson C. Eng. M.I.Mech.E, Broadstone, Dorset

“Chris has consistently added value to the client relationship when I have introduced him. He has a good manner with the clients, reassuring the nervous and speaking on equal terms with the more experienced. I consider Chris to be a shining but sadly rare example of a truly independent financial adviser.”Gillian Linford, Solicitor specialising in advice to older people and their families

“I have been using Apex CB financial planning for a number of years now and have always been impressed with the service provided and the recommendations made.

I would highly recommend the services offered here regardless of your your reason for seeking independent financial advice.”David Watson, Financial Analyst, Poole, Dorset

Chris and his team always handle my needs in a friendly and personal manner.”Cedric Roach, Vice President Procurement, Dockwise Ltd

“I completed my service with the Royal Navy in 2009 and was in receipt of my end of services gratuity and pension. Chris was recommended as a financial adviser with a good track record and, more importantly, a good appreciation of the typical working environment and lifestyle that service personnel have. His initial interview was comprehensive and he made sure that he understood what short and long terms aims my wife and I had with regard to our personal finances. His understanding of service life is first rate and, throughout, there was no pressure and we both felt completely at ease as Chris thoroughly explained our options. His recommendations have not let us down and he is in regular contact ensuring that the products remain suitable for us.”Commander M, RN (Ret’d)

His honesty and integrity is as you expect from a financial advisor who is very customer orientated. Since dealing with Chris Ryan I have recommended friends and family who require financial advice of the highest standard.”WO2 S Mack, London

"My wife and I have enjoyed the financial expertise of Chris Ryan for the last ten years. We have found Chris to be a thoroughly professional advisor who takes pride in providing the most suitable avenue to take in respect of stocks and shares. My mother-in-law has also used Apex CB Financial Planning and has utmost faith in the team."Lieutenant Commander B. Royal Navy MBE (Retd.)

"I cannot praise Apex CB highly enough. Our investment was modest but with continued guidance and complete trust in Chris Ryan and his team has meant that as a widow for the past 4 years I have kept my house and taken funds when necessary to pay for repairs and upgrading of the building. I moved my grandson's savings from Nationwide , a meagre sum which blossomed to a staggering sum. He will be thrilled to receive a cheque to celebrate his 18th birthday."Mrs P. Hammett, Sherborne

"As to your part in the LTM process, Liz, it was very professional, very friendly and went without any noticeable hitch. My few minor questions were answered fairly and where you were unsure you said you would check and get back to me, which you did. Your presentation, the associated documents for my bedtime reading and our subsequent discussion were, for practical purposes, the complete show. What more could a client (other than a really (or acting) stupid one) want."Mr N. Byrne, Bournemouth
