As the leading professional body for the global financial
services profession, the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) exists
to promote higher standards of integrity, technical competence and
business capability. With over 120,000 members in more than 150
countries, the CII is the world's largest professional body
dedicated to insurance and financial services.
Our membership covers all disciplines within the insurance
industry (claims, broking, underwriting and sales), those working
in the life and pensions sector, the mortgage advice market and
financial advisers (under the Personal Finance Society brand).
As one of the largest examination awarding bodies in the UK, we
have delivered education to over one million students in 150
countries over the last 10 years. Success in CII qualifications is
universally recognised as a global standard. While membership of
the CII signals a commitment to developing a broad professional
capability and to a willingness to adhere to the standards
associated with professional status.
Our Royal Charter requires us: "to secure and justify the
confidence of the public" in our members and in the insurance and
financial services sector. The CII works hard to maintain public
confidence and trust in the financial services market. We believe
this will be achieved by creating a genuine global profession where
the best interests of the consumer are to the fore, where ongoing
learning and expertise are cherished, and where the highest
standards of ethical behaviour are embraced.
Through the support and advocacy of our members, specifically
those within the various faculties, societies, boards and
committees we are able to ensure that our activities remain
relevant and reflect the needs of our members whilst at the same
time serving the demands of the public.
