CII applauds professionals for top exam performance

The Chartered Insurance Institute has awarded 34 prizes for the exceptional completion of the professional body's qualifications during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

The CII examination prizes, which have been handed out annually since the professional body was formed in 1912, are given to candidates who achieved the highest performance in their exam sittings and were judged to have produced the greatest standard of coursework.

Among this year's winners were insurance and personal finance professionals from Willis, Marsh, Tokio Marine Kiln, Schroders Personal Wealth, Zurich, Aon, RSA, Brewin Dolphin, Saunderson House and Money Matters North East Ltd.

Sian Fisher, CEO of the CII said: "The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted all our lives, which makes the achievement of these individuals incredibly impressive. I applaud the efforts of our prize winners who, during this time of uncertainty, continued to study and managed to achieve the best results in our examinations. These winners have overcome challenges to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to help consumers and performed exceptionally well when completing one of our qualifications."

Entry for these prizes is automatic for every CII candidate who completes a test or submits coursework during the year.

Every winner receives between £100 and £1,000 plus a certificate, which is usually presented to them at their local institute dinner, handed out by the sponsor of the category or sent directly to them if they prefer that option.
