Written by Jonathan Clark, interim CEO of the Chartered insurance Institute (CII)
One of the key findings from our Shaping the future together consultation was that members wanted greater collaboration between the CII and Personal Finance Society (PFS) Boards and a new PFS leader within the Group, empowered to raise public trust in the profession.

This was both welcomed and supported by the CII Board, so I am delighted the PFS Board is recruiting an interim CEO.
I am, and always have been, deeply committed to working collaboratively with the PFS, to best serve insurance and financial planning professionals. I have been very clear I believe the PFS needs a strong leader and I look forward to working closely with them as soon as they are in place.
We must continue our collective engagement, so we have a united understanding of the challenges both professions face. Then we can deal with those challenges in a simple clear way; a way that – without compromise – always has our membership at heart.
The PFS is an absolutely critical part of what we do – its 39,000-strong membership is highly valued and is a great voice for advice, especially at a time when the cost-of-living crisis is impacting even the most resilient among us.
