What’s more, it appears to be an attempt to steal the trading name of the IFS School of Finance who for many years have been known as the Institute of Financial Services.
Searching the internet, I have found tens of thousands of global references to the Institute of Financial Services as part of the IFS School of Finance. Why on earth would we want to steal this name, other than to confuse people into thinking we are one and the same as this body?
I urge CII members to vote against these proposals and send a message to the CII leaders that 1: insurance should remain our focus and 2: We have no need to steal an existing organisation’s name. Doing so does not set an example of good ethics or professionalism.
