LOCKTON COMPANIES LLP ACHIEVES CHARTERED STATUS – AGAIN!
Lockton in the UK has been successful in its application to renew the prestigious Chartered Insurance Brokers designation by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
This is the industry's gold standard for firms of insurance brokers. It confirms that we have satisfied rigorous qualification criteria by retaining highly-qualified staff who subscribe to the membership conditions of the CII.
The Award demonstrates that Lockton encourages professional standards internally while being committed to an overall standard of customer excellence.
Lockton first achieved Chartered Status in 2009 and since that time the number of Associates that have achieved professional qualifications with the CII has increased by 125%.
53% of Lockton's UK client facing Associates are now professionally qualified with a further 16% working toward qualification.
It is also pleasing to note that Lockton Associates on average score 6-7% above the market average in their exams!
Lockton continues to make the necessary investment in time and people to renew this designation because there is clear evidence that having Chartered Status delivers tangible business benefits that will enhance the service the company provide to clients.
For example, Lockton's status means its Associates have access to:
- A broader range of resources and services to support specialist business sectors
- In depth reports providing analysis and commentary on market issues affecting clients
It means Lockton can tap into the latest educational advice, CPD seminars and social networking events.
It also involves a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to an industry standard Code of Ethics. You can view the Code at http://www.cii.co.uk/cii/about/stand/code_of_ethics.aspx
When you use a Chartered firm you are dealing with proven professionals. The CII is empowered by the Privy Council to award Chartered status, and the award is only made in deserving cases.

Only the UK's premier insurance broking firms qualify for Chartered status. This is great news for Lockton and testament to the hard work of so many Associates taking time out to work on their professional development.
