CIIA recognition by FSP
In July 2007 the CIIA designation gained recognition from the Financial Skills Partnership in the United Kingdom as a Key 2 qualification. The ACIIA now has awarding body status and the CIIA qualification will be included on the appropriate examinations list for seven relevant activities that are regulated by the FSA (Financial Services Authority) in the UK.
The CIIA designation can be found in the examinations list by entering CIIA into the search table at the bottom of the page.
Successful candidates from the CIIA designation will need to take a UK specific examination such as those offered by The Securities and Investments Institute and The UKSIP for full recognition. Details of these examinations can be found on the FSP website.
In the US the CIIA holders are recognised by PRMIA (Professional Risk Managers' International Association) as the equivalent of passing the first two required exams. LOMA, also headquartered in the US recognises the CIIA designation for Professional Achievement Credits (PACs) in its Fellow, Financial Services Institute (FFSI) Programme.
