The website - insurancehistory.cii.co.uk - covers the history of the institute’s Aldermanbury building, including a 360-degree virtual tour of the Insurance Hall and displays the unique stained-glass windows of the historic building.
The CII’s collection of more than 1,500 Fire Marks, which were formerly on display in the staircase of the Aldermanbury building, can be viewed on the site.
There are also digitised versions of hundreds of insurance-related documents, dating back as far as 1669, plus rare, no longer in print books, that give valuable insight into past insurance processes.
The original 1912 Charter of the Chartered Insurance Institute can also be found on the site.
Sian Fisher, chief executive of the Chartered Insurance Institute, said: “We want everyone to be able to appreciate the heritage of the insurance profession and now everybody from around the world can learn more about the history of the Aldermanbury building, insurance and the CII as an institution.”
