The group also saw a 2 per cent rise in membership to over 93,000 members.
The CII says there has been a 60 per cent increase in diploma in financial planning exam sittings year on year.
CII chief executive Alexander Scott says: “These are another good set of financial results including growth in every area of our business. It is widely recognised that during periods of economic downturn people do tend to focus on their personal development and try to increase their perceived value by undertaking more qualifications and training.
“This provides us with a strong base in which to support members through this difficult time and to maintain our work to raise professional standards across the profession and to further enhance CII activity to facilitate this. We are noticing a strong beginning to 2009 but we are exercising suitable caution due to the unstable environment.”
