RSA announced at the recent British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) conference that its UK commercial lines businesses and chief underwriting office (CUO) have now achieved Chartered insurer status, amid a renewed focus on building technical skills and expertise across the group.
Commercial Risk Solutions, Global Risk Solutions and the CUO are accredited by the CII. Chartered insurer status is an industry 'kitemark' awarded to firms that demonstrate a commitment to the CII's code of ethics and to supporting employees in achieving personal development and training through their CII membership.
RSA will expand technical expertise in three main ways:
- Achieving chartered insurer status;
- Aligning the national apprenticeship standards levy with greater CII involvement and increased opportunities for training;
- Improving technical capability acrossclaims, pricing and underwriting.
