Our story

Professionalism | Integrity | Excellence

The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment is the leading professional body for securities, investment, wealth and financial planning professionals. Formed in 1992 by London Stock Exchange practitioners, we have a global community of circa 45,000 members in over 100 countries and last year more than 40,000 CISI exams were sat in 81 countries, 15,000 taken outside the UK.

Our purpose is: “To set standards of professional excellence and integrity for securities, investment, wealth and financial planning professionals, providing qualifications and promoting the highest level of competence to our members, individuals and firms”

The CISI believes professionalism is the blend of three elements:

  • Knowledge - gaining the initial competence to do your job through professional qualifications, developed by practitioners for practitioners
  • Skills - continuing Professional Development (CPD) and ongoing learning which enables you to maintain competence through a professional body membership 
  • Behaviour - upholding the highest standards of integrity by signing up to a professional body's code of conduct.

We believe a professional is someone who has a combination of knowledge and skills, and acts with integrity. Our purpose, as a professional body, is to provide and encourage the attributes necessary to be a professional.
