H&H Insurance Brokers Achieve Chartered Broker Status

20th January 2016

H&H Insurance Brokers, a leading independent insurance broker in the UK, have received the insurance industry’s highest accolade – Corporate Chartered Broker status. This has been granted to Carlisle and Durham based H&H Insurance Brokers by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), the professional body for all the insurance industry.

Chartered status is an exclusive title only awarded to firms who meet rigorous criteria relating to professionalism, capability and adherence to the CII Code of Ethics. It is recognised as a huge achievement throughout the industry, and H&H Insurance Brokers are one of only approximately 170 insurance broking firms out of over 3000 brokers in the UK to be awarded this accolade.

Employing 30 staff, in recent times H&H Insurance Brokers has significantly increased their sales team and expanded the geographical areas in which they operate. With their roots firmly set in rural they have also recognised the commercial sector as having huge potential for development and are currently recruiting additional staff to drive further growth.

Chartered status is an objective mark of professional standing among all professions, and is granted to firms who can demonstrate commitment to developing knowledge, enhancing capability and maintaining ethical standards.

Commenting on their recent achievement as one of only 170 out of over 3000 brokers in the UK to have this status John Noone, Managing Director for H&H Insurance Brokers said:

“Achieving Chartered status is a huge milestone; everyone has worked extremely hard toward accomplishing this highly recognised industry accolade. We are rightly proud of our Chartered status and the professionalism and commitment of our staff that underpins it.

This status really differentiates a broker from the rest of the industry and it is most certainly a clear indicator of the professional standing of H&H Insurance Brokers as a company. It is the best benchmark on a measured and qualified standard, of professionalism within our industry.”

Qualities embodied by Chartered status include competence, knowledge and commitment to maintaining professional capability. Corporate Chartered status underpins best practice and good customer service demonstrating a strong commitment to ethical behaviour.
