Upgarde your Membership
There are five categories of CIS membership. These are Student, Graduate, Associate, Honorary Fellow and Fellow.
Graduates are individual students who have successfully completed our examinations or equivalent but have not satisfied the conditions for admission as associates into the full membership grade of the Institute.
While Graduates may participate in some activities of the Institute such as CPD/Seminar, they cannot not hold offices or vote in the Council election. Graduates are not entitled to use any designatory letter. To upgrade your status from Graduate member to Associate member, click here to download the Association membership form.
Associate membership is granted to individuals who have completed our examinations or equivalent and have at least three years relevant experience in the financial services industry, one of which must be after completing the examinations.
Honorary Fellows ( FCS(Hon.))
Individuals who, in the opinion of the Council of the Institute, have distinguished themselves and made immense contributions to the profession and the securities and investment industry may be awarded Honorary Fellowship status.
