Chartered Title
by CII London

GULF OCEAN was awarded the prestigious Chartered Insurance Broker title in September 2013 by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), London, becoming one of a select group of brokers to hold the title. The CII is empowered by the Privy Council of the United Kingdom to award Chartered status, and the award is only made in most deserving cases.

The broking market is tougher than ever. With increased regulations, continuing soft market conditions and new distribution channels, the industry has had to raise its game.

The Corporate 'Chartered Insurance Brokers' status is an opportunity for the best broking firms to demonstrate their professional commitment to raising standards of knowledge, capability and ethical practice and most importantly it communicates to their customers that they can expect to receive the highest quality of service.

Corporate Chartered Insurance Brokers are required to meet strict obligations which demonstrate their service and support is based on client interests, of the highest quality and provided by someone operating at an appropriate level of expertise.

Chartered firms must ensure that staff members acquire and retain the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver the highest quality advice. They must also work in an ethical manner that places clients' interests at the heart of the advice they give. With fewer than 200 firms of 'Chartered Insurance Brokers' the world over, the status remains an exclusive and valuable distinction.

We are Chartered because we believe in everything it stands for. Our commitment to developing the highest levels of technical skills and expertise is at the core of our business vision in an ever more competitive and commoditized market.

The Chartered title complements Gulf Ocean’s business principles and underpins our commitment to an overall standard of excellence. Achieving this prestigious title helps us to further differentiate ourselves from our competitors.

Genuine professionalism has never been so valued - or so necessary. The Chartered titles awarded by the CII are steeped in history, but they remain today's 'gold standard' of excellence and integrity.

A number of our employees are Fellows, Associates, or Members of this prestigious professional Institute.
