Ryan Insurance Group has been awarded Chartered Insurance Broker status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

The Ipswich-based company joins a select group of brokers to have achieved the accreditation, which is only awarded to firms demonstrating the highest levels of knowledge, advice and ethical practice in their business dealings.

Company director Robin Belsom, said: “We are thrilled that Ryan’s has achieved Chartered Insurance Broker status; this is testament to the emphasis we place on all our employees to gain professional qualifications and provide the highest standard of advice and service to our customers.

“We are extremely proud of this achievement and believe that with only 5% of firms achieving this status it once again demonstrates our commitment to becoming a leader in the industry.”

He added that Chartered Insurance Broker status was now more valuable than ever, with consumers demanding that professional advisers demonstrate professional capabilities.

“They want to deal with professional individuals and professional firms who can provide first-class service, advice and support,” he said.
