The Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) received a delegation from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) led by CEO of CII, Alan Vallance, to discuss providing more professional certifications and training opportunities for professionals in the fields of insurance and financial planning. The visiting delegation included Interim Membership and Engagement Director, Azlina Bulmer, and Regional Director for the Middle East, Gaenor Jones. 

During the visit, the CII and the BIBF discussed ways to further develop their relationship and support the CII’s future strategies in the region, with a particular focus on providing more valuable support to the CII members in the region helping them in their career development. 

The BIBF also arranged official meetings with CEOs and executives of insurance companies to gather market feedback. In addition, CII delegates also met with the Governor of the Central Bank of Bahrain, His Excellency Rasheed Mohammed AlMaraj, to discuss the Kingdom’s efforts in developing the insurance sector.
