We are delighted to confirm that following our annual audit, the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) have confirmed renewal of our Chartered Insurance Broker status.

We remain one of only 150 Chartered firms in the UK and the CII confirm:

“Chartered titles are jealously guarded by professional bodies and are not awarded lightly. Chartered status therefore brings with it a number of serious obligations. A Chartered title is not simply recognition for staff having passed examinations.

The title Chartered Insurance Brokers is a public declaration that the advice given by your firm:

– is of the highest quality
– is based solely on the researched needs of the consumer
– is provided by someone not exceeding their level of competency”

At a gala evening at Stanley House in Mellor, Garratts walked away with the Best Social Media Presence title for 2014 and were finalists in the Best Business category.

We are delighted that our efforts and service to our clients is recognised by the wider business community and acknowledge the role played by our staff in helping our reputation continue to flourish and grow.

We are delighted to confirm that both Matt Garratt and James Grindley have successfully achieved their first professional qualifications within 12 months of entering the industry.

As part of their Apprenticeships they have both achieved the Cert CII title following 12 months intensive learning and three external examinations. Whilst their daily learning continues, this is a huge positive step in their professional careers.

Well done to them both.
