Why choose a professional?

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.

  • This alliance is all about inspiring public confidence and trust in the power of professional standards, fitting in perfectly with the ambitions set out in the CII’s recently launched Strategic Manifesto. I am looking forward to working with other Chartered professional bodies, as well as with our combined network of members, as we develop a united voice for promoting professionalism and improving public trust and confidence in the financial services sector.

  • 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.

  • We are delighted to be one of the founding members of the Chartered Body Alliance. I believe that having three of the largest professional bodies in financial services working more closely together will help to enhance and sustain professionalism in financial services and lead to an improvement in public confidence and trust, and to a renewed sense of pride within the profession.
