Chartered Insurance Brokers

Our chartered status

 

Turner Insurance Group is proud to hold the prestigious Chartered Insurance Broker title.

This title is only awarded to firms committed to developing and maintaining the knowledge and capability of their people, in order that they can deliver the highest quality advice.

Chartered firms must also follow a demanding code of ethical practice, to work in a manner that places the clients’ interests at the heart of the advice they give.

Chartered status – granted by the Privy Council – is the industry’s gold standard for insurance brokers and is currently met by fewer than 200 firms across the country.
