Why become an Affiliate?

Becoming an Affiliate member of the CISI is a straightforward way to improve your career prospects.

As an Affiliate member of the CISI, you demonstrate a commitment to professionalism, integrity and excellence. It shows colleagues and clients that you want to develop your knowledge and progress in your career.

Membership is also a way to show your commitment to ethical behaviour. All CISI members must complete an integrity test upon joining, as well as sign up to a code of conduct.

Affiliate membership is ideal for those forging a career in financial services, whose job role does not require a specialist financial qualification.

What you get...

The range of benefits means Affiliate members can keep up with the latest industry developments, access in-depth insight and develop wide-ranging industry connections – without having to undertake exams.

Members can also keep a tangible record of all of this through an automatically updated CPD record, demonstrating to employers a commitment to professional development.

With over 350 events held each year there are regular opportunities for networking and development. On top of this, our renowned industry publication, the S&I Review, available in print and online, gives weekly updates of news, opinion and analysis from financial services experts. Other benefits include Professional Refresher modules, online lectures on CISI TV and exclusive online networks – to ensure members can build their connections and develop their knowledge, wherever they are based.
