Cornish Mutual's Claire Achieves Highest Insurance Accreditation


Claire Longman, Technical Leader at Cornish Mutual, has been named a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). Claire has achieved the CII’s highest qualification by proving her in-depth insurance expertise and her commitment to ethical practice.


Claire grew up in Truro and has 15 years’ experience in insurance, mainly gained through working for insurance firms in the South East. She returned to her home county and joined Cornish Mutual in 2012, where she has been at the forefront of developing a number of new insurance offerings for the company’s Members across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset.


Claire was previously an Associate of the CII. To achieve her Fellowship, she had to complete an assessment and a number of case studies, demonstrating her technical knowledge and expertise.


Claire said: “I am really delighted to have been made a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute. Achieving the top qualification from the leading professional body for insurance and financial planning is great for Cornish Mutual as it demonstrates our expertise and our commitment to providing the very best service to our Members.”


In 2012, Cornish Mutual became the first mutual insurance company in the UK and the first insurer in the South West to achieve Chartered status from the Chartered Insurance Institute.


Alan Goddard, Managing Director of Cornish Mutual said: “Congratulations to Claire on being named a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute – this is testament to her commitment and the depth and breadth of her expertise.


“At Cornish Mutual we are committed to providing training and development for our staff, so we were delighted to support Claire in achieving her Fellowship. For our Members, these accreditations give peace of mind, showing that we have the best people who really understand insurance.”
