Chartered Status

Harborough Portas was awarded the prestigious Chartered Insurance Broker designation by the Chartered Insurance Institute in 2014. Chartered insurance broker status is an exclusive and valuable merit, demonstrating a commitment to delivering the highest professional level of knowledge, advice and ethical practice.

For insurance brokers, this is the gold standard and the benchmark of professional excellence and integrity.

When you use a broker with Chartered status you are dealing with proven professionals. The CII is empowered by the Privy Council to award Chartered status only in deserving cases. It confirms that we have satisfied rigorous qualification criteria by retaining highly-qualified staff who subscribe to the membership conditions of the CII.

It also involves a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to an industry standard Code of Ethics. You can view the Code here.

Only the UK’s premier insurance broking firms qualify for Chartered status. If you wish to know more about how using a Chartered firm can ensure you get the best possible advice, service, and support, please do not hesitate to contact us.
