Chartered Financial Planners

AES International, Chartered Financial Planner

Corporate Chartered Financial Planners status has been awarded to AES International in the UK and its branch in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) by the UK Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). The CII is empowered by the Privy Council (through Royal Charter) which can trace its roots back to the royal court of 12th Century England. 

Chartered status for Financial Planners, as for other professions such as Accountants and Engineers, demonstrates commitment to the highest degree of knowledge, capability and ethical practice.

AES International is proud to be the first ever organisation to attain Corporate Chartered Financial status in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region via our Dubai International Financial Centre based branch.

Being the first, we are largely unique within the European and wider international financial marketplace and are the largest specialist in international, cross-border and non-domiciled and offshore financial planning to hold Corporate Chartered Financial Planner status.
