 Our History

The CII regional office in India was first established (as a Liaison Office) in October 2007 and was restructured into a wholly owned subsidiary in 2010 – the Chartered Institute of Insurance and Financial Services Private Limited (“CIIFS”).

The regional office is responsible for the CII’s relationships throughout the Central and South Asia region, principally focussed on our Royal Charter objective to “secure and justify the confidence of the public” by providing professional courses and learning support.

The team works with regulators, education institutes, distribution partners, colleges & universities, life and non-life Insurance companies, insurance brokers, BPOs and individual students to promote professional standards across different segments in the region. One of the key programmes in the region has been working with the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) to raise levels of capability and professional standards, through the introduction of qualifications and training programmes in Financial Planning.
