Aspen Risk Management gains CII Chartered Insurers status

11th January

London, UK, January 11, 2012 – Aspen Risk Management Limited has been awarded corporate Chartered Insurers status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). The new certification demonstrates Aspen Risk Management’s commitment to the “gold standard” in professionalism and skills.

The CII’s Chartered Insurers status is a highly prestigious designation with very demanding qualification criteria. Insurance companies are awarded Chartered status only on the basis of the highest professional standards and skills, up-to-date qualifications, and strong ethical conduct. The CII describes Chartered Insurers status as the “gold standard” and the “ultimate symbol of trust for insurance and financial planning.”

Kevin Pallett, Managing Director of Aspen Risk Management Limited, welcomed the firm’s achievement: “We are very excited to be awarded Chartered Insurers status. It shows our commitment and dedication towards the highest professional standards in our dealings with brokers and their clients – and is a strong vote of confidence in the quality and skills of our people.

“Chartered Insurers status provides a further reason why brokers can confidently recommend Aspen Risk Management to clients,” he added.
