Darren Kelly ACSI of the Isle of Man was one of an elite group of 96 award winners at the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) Annual Award ceremony at Mansion House, London.
The Awards are made every year for top exam performers and Darren joined prize winners from India, the UAE, Singapore, Bahrain, Lebanon, Qatar, Republic of Ireland and France.

Darren said “To receive this award from such a prestigious industry body as the CISI is a real honour. The CISI qualifications I’ve undertaken so far have given me an excellent understanding of the financial services sector and how it currently operates. I expect the knowledge gained from completing them will serve me very well in my future study and career plans.”
Darren received his CISI Level 3 Award in Global Financial Compliance from Sir David Howard FCSI(Hon), Chairman, CISI Examination Board.
