The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) is the largest and most widely respected professional body for those who work in the securities and investment industry in the UK.
On Thursday 21st May 2015, The CISI hosted a Wales Branch inaugural Dinner at Cardiff Castle. With esteemed guests that included the First Minister, Carwyn Jones, the dinner was CISI’s major social occasion of the year with them celebrating their local, national and global achievements.
Rugby legend Ieuan Evans MBE, former Wales captain and veteran of three British & Irish Lions tours, added his words of welcome and entertained guests at the inaugural annual dinner of the Wales Branch at Cardiff Castle. The event was a fantastic success with over 100 guests, including members of the CISI Board, which earlier in the day had held its first meeting in Wales. Two Board members, CISI Chief Executive Simon Culhane, Chartered FCSI and Alan Ramsay FCSI(Hon), addressed the event.
More than £1,500 was raised at the event for Tŷ Hafan, one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities which offers the only children’s hospice service in South Wales.
Sponsors of the event included: the Welsh Government, Cardiff City Council, Penderyn Distillery and Gordon Dadds Solicitors.
