Corporate Chartered consultation

We have launched a consultation paper to seek the views of insurance and personal finance professionals on the current corporate Chartered proposition.

Eleven years on from the launch of the three corporate Chartered titles; Chartered Insurers, Chartered Insurance Brokers and Chartered Financial Planners, over 900 firms and divisions today hold corporate Chartered status, publicly demonstrating their commitment to professionalism and its importance for clients. The criteria were last revised in 2014 but ensuring Chartered is always the badge of trust for consumers and the public means regular review and consultation. 

This consultation period ran from 15 August to the extended date of 3 October 2018 and looked to address these key areas:

  1. Eligibility criteria; how firms demonstrate their commitment to professionalism
  2. Value proposition; do the current elements of Chartered create a valued outcome
  3. Process; addressing the application and renewal process
  4. Oversight; partnering with firms to ensure professional standards are upheld
  5. Expansion; raise awareness of Chartered in the profession and with the Public

Key findings will be published in early 2019 or sooner if concluded.

“These are crucial times for the insurance and personal finance profession, with our recent work on the Public Trust Index highlighting clear areas to address. The CII constantly strives to maintain the standards of professionalism and we’re conscious of the need to always be evolving this support for our membership and the wider sector. This consultation on our Corporate Chartered proposition, is essential to guide and focus our direction of travel.”
Sian Fisher, CEO, Chartered Insurance Institute

Corporate Chartered consultation FAQs

Thank you to those of you who responded to the consultation. We had 477 responses to our survey that was launched in August. We also obtained feedback from a number of consumers, stakeholders and boards, which has been helpful and constructive. We are still evaluating the findings from the consultation and there is much for us to consider before we make decisions about the criteria and future direction of Corporate Chartered Status (CCS). We hope to be in a position to communicate with you further in more detail in Q1 2019. We want to ensure CCS stands for professional excellence which is why we are taking the time to get this right.

In the meantime, we are publishing information on some FAQs so that our members and stakeholders can find out more about how we are addressing certain points raised during the consultation so far.
