Happy New Year - A message from your President

Best wishes for 2022 to all our members and friends here in Ireland and globally.

As we face into year three of the pandemic, it remains just as frustrating as ever that we can’t meet in person, but who knows maybe we’ll get to have that elusive “cup of coffee” this year.

As a truly global organisation, we get a clear sense of the different work experiences of our members, and the stress that can sometimes come with renewed restrictions where they occur.

Be assured that the CISI’s National Advisory Council (NAC) here in Ireland considers the whole subject of real or virtual meetings on a regular basis and view health and safety of our members as the top priority.

2021 saw an impressive number of virtual events organised by CISI Ireland, with topics ranging from trust in financial services to global macroeconomic outlook and much more.

Over the past two years we have been delighted to partner with bodies such the IDA, Central Bank, 30% Club, London School of Economics, Irish Banking Culture Board, and many more in bringing events to our membership.

We are working on an equally impressive line-up for 2022. Our survey of members here has provided clear guidance in terms of what you want to see.

We are delighted to see continued interest in our educational offerings across a wide range of topics including Investment Operations and ESG investing.

I would encourage you to look at our extensive e-learning library which is continually updated on MyCISI.

As always, for information on membership, training or general issues please contact Deirdre Lawson, your representative at the CISI.


Best of Luck for 2022!

Eugene Kiernan

President National Advisory Council, Ireland.
