About the Hong Kong Confederation of Insurance Brokers (“HKCIB”)
HKCIB was formed in February 1993. From 30 June 1995 until 23 September 2019, HKCIB was one of the two approved bodies to self-regulate insurance brokers in Hong Kong. The fundamental role of HKCIB as a self-regulatory organization ended in September 2019 when the Hong Kong Insurance Authority (“IA”) took over the self-regulatory functions to implement direct licensing regime in Hong Kong.
Today, CIB is a professional body representing the interest of insurance brokers. CIB is now focusing on three key roles for serving our members:
“Professionalism” - to promote professionalism amongst brokers in the industry;
“Representation” - to represent the interests of members;
“Communication” - to continue the communication with the IA to reflect members’ interest.
