Individual Membership of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment
The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment is the leading professional body for securities & investment practitioners. The CISI has been dedicated to professionalism since it emerged from the London Stock Exchange in 1992. Achieving chartered status is an acknowledgement of the Institute’s work in bringing a greater measure of professionalism to the financial services industry, encompassing both skills and ethical behaviour.
The Institute has five different grades of membership, so whether you are just starting out in the industry and studying for a benchmark qualification or you are an established practitioner with a wealth of experience and qualifications, there is a grade appropriate for your level.
For our members, the benefits of chartered status are two fold; firstly, members will benefit individually through enhanced standing in the industry and the wider community, and secondly, members have the opportunity to become chartered.
To become Individually Chartered, members will need to meet the criteria set out by the Board, further information and the crieria to apply can be found here.
Members can also apply to be a Chartered Wealth Manager. Chartered Wealth Manager is a designation launched by the CISI to recognise members in the retail sector at the pinnacle of their profession. You can find further information and the criteria to apply here.
As well as the widely recognised designatory letters (ACSI, MCSI, and FCSI) CISI membership provides a comprehensive and diverse benefits package, designed to assist members in enhancing and maintain their knowledge through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
