President's Message

Dear Members,


I’m honoured to have the opportunity to lead the Chartered Insurance Institute of Northampton into its 113th  year. We’re currently going through an unprecedented period, which has caused us to have to adapt to the changing work practices in the UK at present. I’m fortunate to have an incredibly strong and committed team on Council who have already found practical solutions to ensuring that we provide consistent and relevant modules to our diverse membership via webinar-based CPD courses, suitable for the cross section of Financial Services professionals we serve.


I’m also very grateful to the leadership team at Premium Credit, who have encouraged me to follow my passion, giving me the scope to take up this role. As the leading insurance premium finance company in the UK, I feel it’s vital that we actively engage with the professional bodies in the financial services industry, of which we’re an intrinsic component. The support I have from the business leaders at Premium Credit has allowed me to do exactly that.


I’m sure that there will be further challenges presented to us as the pandemic continues to sweep the globe, but feel confident that with the backing of fantastic teams at both Premium Credit and the Insurance Institute of Northampton, we’ll continue to positively overcome them.



Christopher Emmanuel

President of the Northampton Chartered Insurance Institute
