CIB Status



The pinnacle of individual achievement is the award of Chartered Insurance Broker (CIB).

The challenges insurance brokers face in our profession encourage the raising of standards of knowledge, capability and ethical practice. The emphasis is on advisers becoming more professional.

CIB distinguishes you from the crowd. It reinforces the importance of professionalism in a fast-moving and competitive market. This Chartered status places you on a par with other professionals such as accountants and solicitors.

Chartered Status is well established as a trust symbol of professionalism, distinguishing you from your competitors and peers.

These people have achieved CIB this year.  See below for the criteria for you to be one too.
