LV= Broker awarded Chartered Insurer status
LV= Broker has been awarded Chartered Insurer status for underwriting by the Chartered Institute of Insurance (CII) – a prestigious accolade that recognises the insurer’s professional attitude, skills and knowledge as well as the high quality service it provides to brokers.
Chartered Insurer status is an exclusive accreditation only awarded to companies that demonstrate their professionalism, expertise and ability. It means that LV= Broker is now part of an elite group of fewer than 30 other insurers to meet the CII’s rigorous criteria.
In addition, LV= Broker’s teams will benefit from access to CII services supporting the insurer’s ongoing development of its people.
Mike Crane, managing director of LV= Broker, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for our teams. Chartered Insurer is a prestigious award, which recognises their dedication to professionalism and high standards of behaviour.
“We have been working hard to develop a strong professional heart to our business that gives brokers access to high quality professionals. Chartered status recognises this and I am proud of our team for raising the bar to help us attain the award.”
Sian Fisher, chief executive officer of the CII, added: “I am thrilled that LV=Broker has achieved Chartered Insurer status. Chartered continues to resonate strongly with customers and staff alike as a means of showcasing excellence and evidencing a commitment to competence, conduct and culture that goes beyond the norm. Mike and his team are to be congratulated on making this step and for embracing the challenge of professionalism.”
The winners of the Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) annual Public Interest Awards (PIA) were announced at a prestigious ceremony at Christ Church Spitalfields in London, on 21 April.
The CII is encouraging firms in the insurance and financial advice sectors to start disclosing their gender pay information ahead of next April’s deadline, regardless of whether or not they are required to.
