The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment
To set standards of professional excellence and integrity for the investment and securities industry, providing qualifications and promoting the highest level of competence to our members, other individuals and firms.
Formerly the Securities & Investment Institute (SII), and originally founded by members of the London Stock Exchange in 1992, the Institute is the leading examining, membership and awarding body for the securities and investment industry. We were awarded a royal charter in October 2009, becoming the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment. We currently have around 40,000 members who benefit from a programme of professional and social events, with continuing professional development (CPD) and the promotion of integrity, very much at the heart of everything we do. Additionally, more than 40,000 examinations are taken annually in more than 50 countries throughout the world.
The CISI also currently works with a number of academic institutions offering qualifications, membership and exemptions as well as information on careers in financial services. We have over 40 schools and colleges offering our introductory qualifications and have 7 University Centres of Excellence recognised by the CISI as offering leadership in academic education on financial markets.
Our membership believes that keeping up to date is central to professional development. ...
