Chartered Insurance Institute Refreshes Brand

The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has launched a new visual identity which unifies all previously separate brands as a visible mark of a united profession.

The new logo is a contemporary version of its original coat of arms, which was granted alongside the Royal Charter to “secure and justify the confidence of the public”. It embodies the united profession that the CII serves. Each major class of business is represented. The United Kingdom is shown by the lion and unicorn, both of which have fish scales symbolising international trade.

The group will also adopt a new tagline 'Standards. Professionalism. Trust.' in place of the original Latin. The public will also see the brand through corporate and individual Chartered status marks.

Sian Fisher, Chartered Insurance Institute CEO, said: “Our strategic manifesto set out an ambitious programme for change. But our heritage is a vital part of the picture, particularly for the public. We were established over a century ago with a focus on public interest, and now more than ever, the public needs to be able to trust in professional standards delivered consistently."

The Chartered Insurance Institute launched its Strategic Manifesto in November 2016, outlining its core purpose to build public trust in insurance and financial planning.
