Asia Pacific

International growth is a key part of the CII's strategy and considers that building a local presence in key areas like Asia is essential to build and develop this growth. The CII has a strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

The CII has established its regional office in Hong Kong to develop the Institute's presence across South East Asia and the Asia Pacific region.

The CII has strategic alliances and partnerships as well as affiliated institutes in a number of countries to locally service the needs of our members and students and help raise the overall standards of professionalism in the market through qualifications, training and member services.


Some of the initiatives that we have worked with our partners on are as follows:

  • The CII and the Insurance Institute of Hong Kong (IIHK) have merged to create Hong Kong's foremost insurance and financial planning professional body. It combines the global reputation and strength of the CII, the world's largest professional body for this sector, with the local relevance and strong market relationships of IIHK.
  • The Singapore College of Insurance provides a fast-track route to achieve the CII's Advanced Diploma in Insurance through their Insurance Executive Programme.
  • TR Training and Consulting Ltd promote the CII locally in Thailand and offer the CII's Award in General Insurance as well as the Certificate in Insurance for local candidates.
