The Aldermanbury Declaration

On 4 March 2010, the Insurance Profession Task Force published the Aldermanbury Declaration. The Task Force, chaired by then CII president Barry Smith, comprised senior individuals from the general insurance sector, and spent many months shaping a common framework for professional standards.

The deadline for signatories to meet the standards was set as 31 December 2013. More than three quarters of signatories met the criteria with many firms going on to become Chartered Insurers or Chartered Insurance Brokers.

The Aldermanbury Declaration has significantly raised the profile of professional standards across the general insurance market but the journey is far from over and the CII will be continuing to work to encourage greater professionalism in the sector. 

"Companies now realise that putting professionalism; high standards, lifelong learning, and ethics at the centre of their business will produce better outcomes for their customers."
