Chartered Body Alliance
A joint initiative by the Chartered Insurance Institute, Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment and the Chartered Banker Institute.
Why a Chartered Body?
Across the professional landscape, from accountants to civil engineers, and of course through to banking, financial advice and insurance, being a qualified member of a Chartered body is an indicator of high standards of competence, knowledge and ethical behaviour.
Membership of a Chartered body means that an individual or organisation has committed to:
High levels of technical and professional knowledge and competence through professional qualifications
Keeping knowledge and skills up-to-date through continuing professional development
Adherence to a sector set code of professional ethics, conduct and values.

"We are delighted to be one of the three core participating professional bodies in this important initiative. We want the consumers to be reassured when they interact with a member of a Chartered body and recognise that these individuals have the right knowledge and skills and adhere to the highest standards of integrity. Chartered or Certified designations possessed by Alliance members are a mark of authenticity, quality, reliability and trust."
