ROSSBOROUGH Insurance has continued its commitment to raising standards of practice and upholding its chartered insurance broker status with another employee successfully completing the Advanced Diploma in Insurance and becoming an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute (ACII).
Jersey director, Nigel Lee-Briard, recently achieved the coveted ACII status, which is a professional qualification for experienced insurance practitioners. It provides an enhanced understanding of insurance practice, both in terms of technical subject matter and overall application skills. Successful candidates are eligible for chartered status, which demonstrates the holder’s commitment to learning, competence and ethical practice.
Mr Lee-Briard commented: ‘The ACII qualification was an extremely rewarding experience as it enabled me to undertake research and development as part of a wider learning experience. It helped me to expand my knowledge to a greater level against practical examples and case studies, and developed my understanding of the insurance industry as a whole.’
To achieve the ACII status Mr Lee-Briard was required to complete a number of varied and challenging units, ranging from insurance business and finance to insurance law. He was assessed through a blend of written and multiple-choice examinations, along with coursework modules.
‘Being able to demonstrate a real understanding of insurance placement requirements and client needs, as well as the ability to provide sound guidance and advice, is vitally important. Customers can be assured that in dealing with an associate, and a chartered insurance broker, that their insurance requirements will be met with the utmost professionalism and integrity,’ added Mr Lee-Briard.
‘We are delighted that Nigel has achieved his ACII status. His success confirms Rossborough’s commitment to professional qualification and our status as Jersey’s only Chartered Insurance Broker,’ said managing director of Rossborough, Clive De La Cour of Mr Lee-Briard’s achievement.
Mr Lee-Briard has over 30 years’ experience in the placement of local business insurance. He joined Rossborough in 1986 as a motor insurance broker, and was subsequently promoted to the position of account executive within the commercial team, before taking on the role of director in 2005. Mr Lee-Briard’s areas of specialism include the placement of construction and development risks, as well as other general commercial insurance needs.
The Advanced Diploma in Insurance is a professional qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the industry, and the logical progression from the diploma in insurance completed by Mr Lee-Briard. Mr Lee-Briard becomes the sixth member of the team at Rossborough in Jersey to have achieved the ACII certificate.
