Davy’s commitment to clients in relation to complaints handling is set out both in our Terms and Conditions and reads as follows:

 

We are constantly working to improve our service to our clients. An essential part of this continuous improvement process is feedback both positive and negative from our clients. We strongly encourage you to give this feedback to us. In particular should you be dissatisfied at any time with the service that you receive from Davy, do not hesitate to make this known to us. We have an internal complaints procedure and will deal with your complaint promptly. Please address your correspondence to Davy Dealing Desk or Davy Credit Union Support Team at Davy, 49 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, who in turn may refer the matter internally, which is independent of the Davy Dealing Desk. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of our review of your complaint, you are entitled to refer the matter to the Financial Services Ombudsman, the Pensions Ombudsman or the Pensions Authority, depending on the nature of your complaint.
