  • We are an Investment Intermediary. We are in an ideal position to place business with all the leading insurers and product providers with whom we hold agency appointments.  We are not tied to any specific institution and are therefore able to provide advice and choice. We have a list of the Insurance and Assurance Companies with whom we hold an Agency available on request.  The Company is also a member of Brokers Ireland
  • The Company acts as a Broker which means that:
    1. the principal regulated activities of the firm are provided on the basis of a fair & personal analysis of the market; and
    2. You have the option to pay in full for our services by means of a fee.

 

Fair & Personal Analysis

 

The concept of fair & personal Analysis is derived from the Insurance Distribution  Directive.  It describes the extent of the choice of products and providers offered by an intermediary within a particular category of life assurance, general insurance, mortgages, and/ or a specialist area.  The number of contracts and providers considered must be sufficiently large to enable an intermediary to recommend a product that would be adequate to meet a client’s needs.

The number of providers that constitutes ‘sufficiently large’ will vary depending on the number of providers operating in the market for a particular product or service and their relative importance in and share of that market.  The extent of fair & personal analysis must be such that could be reasonably expected of a professional conducting business, taking into account the accessibility of information and product placement to intermediaries and the cost of the search.

In order to ensure that the number of contracts and providers is sufficiently large to constitute a fair &personal analysis of the market, we will consider the following criteria:

 

  • the needs of the customer,
  • the size of the customer order,
  • the number of providers in the market that deal with brokers,
  • the market share of each of those providers,
  • the number of relevant products available from each provider,
  • the availability of information about the products,
  • the quality of the product and service provided by the provider,
  • cost, and
  • any other relevant consideration.

We provide advice on Health insurance on a limited analysis basis (providing services on the basis of a limited number of contracts and product producers available on the market).

 

We provide advice in relation to the following product provider:

Irish Life Health DAC.

 

We also provide some Investment products regulated under Markets in Financial Instruments (“MiFID II”) on a limited analysis basis from the following providers BCP Asset Management DAC, Wealth Options Ltd, Davy Select (a division of J&E Davy), Premier Benchmark Property LTD., t/a Greenman Investments, BlackBee Investments Limited trading as BlackBee & BlackBee Investments, MMPI Limited trading as Broker Solutions. Where we offer these products to you, we will confirm this in writing to you.

We will provide assistance to you for any queries you may have in relation to the policies or in the event of a claim during the life of the policies and we will explain to you the various restrictions, conditions and exclusions attached to your policy. However, it is your responsibility to read the policy documents, literature and brochures to ensure that you understand the nature of the policy cover, particularly in relation to PHI and serious illness policies.

Specifically on the subject of permanent health insurance policies it is our policy to explain to you a) the meaning of disability as defined in the policy; b) the benefits available under the policy; c) the general exclusions that apply to the policy; and d) the reductions applied to the benefit where there are disability payments from other sources.

 

For a serious illness policy, we will explain clearly to you the restrictions, conditions and general exclusions that attach to that policy.

The Company can provide advice on and arrange products from the following range: fixed-rate loans, variable rate mortgages, capital & interest mortgages, interest only mortgages, endowment mortgages, pension mortgages, and residential investment property.

Such information should be produced promptly upon request. We may receive commission of up to 1% (or whatever maximum is applicable) of the loan for arranging mortgage finance. This commission is paid by the mortgage lender. We have a list of the lenders with whom we hold an Agency available on request.

 

Sustainability Factors – Investment/IBIPS/Pension Advice

When providing advice, The Company considers the adverse impact of investment decisions on sustainability.  As part of our research and assessment of products, we will examine the Product Providers literature to compare financial products and to make informed investment decisions about ESG products. The Company will at all times act in the client’s best interests and keep clients informed accordingly.

In accordance with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (‘SFDR’), when providing advice on insurance-based investment products/Investments, we assess in addition to relevant financial risks, relevant sustainability risks as far as this information is available in relation the products proposed/advised on. This means that we assess environmental, social or governance events/conditions that, if they occur, could have a material negative impact on the value of the investment.

 

We integrate these risks in our advice by reviewing the product provider literature in relation to sustainability risks, we liaise with the providers in relation to any queries in relation to the funds.  This information is reviewed by the firm on an ongoing basis.

 

Considering Principal Adverse Impacts (PAI) on sustainability factors in the advice:

When providing advice on insurance-based investment products (‘IBIPs’) or investment advice we assess the PAI information published by product manufacturers as follows:

 

We will examine the Product Providers literature to establish the Principal Adverse Impacts for the relevant products.  The firm will then compare financial products across available providers to make informed investment decisions about the suitability of ESG products for individual clients.

 

Impact on Return

 

If sustainability risks -are deemed relevant:

We also assess the likely impacts of sustainability risks on the returns of the IBIPs on which we advise. We estimate that the likely impacts of sustainability risks on the returns of Pensions/Investments are based on the returns in the product documentation provided by the product manufacturer.

Cooling off Period  

 

A consumer (as defined by SI No 853 of 2004) has the right to withdraw from an insurance policy (as defined under SI No 853 of 2004) within 14 days of the start date of the policy (except in the case of travel policies whose operative period is for one month or less), 30 days in the case of Life Assurance without penalty and without giving any reason. This is known as the cooling off period. The right of withdrawal may be exercised by notice in writing to Dooley Insurances Ltd quoting your policy number provided that no claim or adjustment has been made or is intended to be made or no incident has occurred which is likely to give rise to a claim or for travel policies. Should this right be exercised the insurance company may charge for the period you are on cover. For motor insurance the insurance certificate and disc must be received by Dooley Insurances Ltd before the policy can be cancelled. Please note that the policy set up charge is non-refundable if you choose to withdraw from the policy within the cooling off period.

 

Payments

 

An invoice detailing the premium and any relevant taxes for the insurances will be sent to you. In order to ensure continuation of cover, settlement with cleared funds must be made to us within the specified time period given. If you are unable to pay by the due date you must notify us. Failure to meet the payment date may lead to insurers cancelling cover. Our service to you does not include payment to insurers of your due premiums from our own funds. If you wish to pay your premium by instalments your details may be passed to our third party instalment provider. They will send you a welcome pack detailing their full terms and conditions. If you have any questions about your instalments you should contact the provider direct on the contact number provided. On renewal of your policy we will continue to pass your details to the third party provider unless you instruct us otherwise.

If any direct debit or other payment due in respect of the credit agreement you enter into with the provider to pay insurance premiums is not met when presented for payment or if you end the credit agreement with the provider or if you do not enter into a credit agreement with the provider we will be informed of such events by the provider. If you do not make other arrangements to pay the insurance premiums you acknowledge and agree that we may, at any time after being so informed, instruct the relevant insurer to cancel the insurance (or, if this occurs shortly after the start or renewal of the insurance, to notify the insurer that the policy has not been taken up). You will be responsible for paying any time on risk charge and putting in place any alternative insurance and/or paying arrangements you need. There is no VAT charge on any insurance transaction.

Mortgage lenders may seek early repayment of a loan and interest if you default on your repayments. Your home is at risk if you do not maintain your agreed repayments.

 

The Company will accept payments by cash, cheque, credit cards, laser, direct debit & Premium Finance in respect of all classes of insurance in the circumstances permitted under Section 25 (G) of The Investment Intermediaries Act 1995.  A Section 30 receipt will be issued for these payments. Return premiums will be sent to you as soon as possible.

 

Default or Failure to pay

 

We reserve the right to instigate cancellation of a policy in the event of, but not exclusively due to, the following:

 

Non-payment of the premium due at inception, renewal or following a mid-term adjustment

Your bank returns your cheque

Non-disclosure of relevant information

Our firm will exercise its legal rights to receive any payments due to it from clients for business services provided.

 

 

Cancellation

 

You, the customer can cancel your policy by notice in writing at any time. It may be that a rebate of premium is due to you but this is not always the case. For example, the policy may be subject to a minimum and deposit premium or short period rates may apply during the first period of insurance or if a claim is notified or in other circumstances as advised to you. A motor policy can only be cancelled from the date the Certificate of Insurance and Disc for each vehicle are returned.

Product Producers (Insurers) normally reserve the right to cancel a policy at any time by sending written notification to your last known address. For full details you should refer to the policy document.

 

In the event of cancellation of a policy we will, on request, send you any documentation or provide you with any information to which you have an entitlement.

 

 

Disclosure of Information

 

Your duty of disclosure when completing documentation for new business/renewals and midterm adjustments

 

Section 14 (1) – (5) of the Consumer Insurance Contracts Act which is effective from 1st September 2021 alters consumers duty of disclosure:

 

You are required to answer all questions posed by us or the insurer honestly and with reasonable care – the test will be that of the ‘average consumer’.  Average consumer as per Directive No. 2005/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2005 is reasonably well informed and reasonably observant and circumspect, taking into account social, cultural and linguistic factors.

 

Specific questions will be asked. Where you do not provide additional information (after being requested to do so) it can be presumed that the information previously provided remains unchanged.

 

An insurer may repudiate liability or limit the amount paid on foot of the contract of insurance, only if it establishes that non-disclosure of material information was an effective cause of the insurer entering into the relevant contract of insurance and on the terms on which it did.

 

Completed proposal forms/statement of fact

Completed proposal forms or Statements of Facts will be provided to you.  These are  important documents as they form the basis of insurance contract between the insurer and you the consumer.  You should review and confirm that the answers contained within are true and accurate.

CONSUMER INSURANCE CONTRACTS ACT 2019

 

Following the commencement of the Consumer Insurance Contract Act 2019 which was implemented to protect consumers. There is important information that you should be aware of and we are bringing to your attention. There are obligations on you as the consumer and duties that you must fulfil at the various stages of the process of arranging and renewing your Insurance policy.

So please read the following information very carefully and if you have any questions please ask a member of our staff.

 

Pre-Contract Stage

Before a contract of insurance is entered into, you as the  consumer need to understand the following:-

If an insurer asks a specific question, it must be presumed the matter to which it relates is material to the risk undertaken by the insurer or the calculation of the premium by that insurer, or both.

You as the consumer is under a duty to answer all the questions posed by the insurer honestly and with reasonable care. We are advising you that this is extremely important to adhere to.

 

New Business & Renewal

A consumer may cancel a contract of insurance, by giving notice in writing to the insurer, within 14 days after the date the consumer was informed that the contract is concluded.  The insurer cannot impose any costs on the consumer other than the cost of the premium for the period of cover. (This does not affect notice periods already in place, i.e.  30 days in respect of life policies and 14 days in respect of general policies under respective pieces of legislation).

 

The consumer is under a duty to pay their premium within a reasonable time, or otherwise in accordance with the terms of the contract of insurance.

 

A court of competent jurisdiction can reduce the pay-out to the consumer where they are in breach of their duties under the Act, in proportion to the breach involved.

 

Post-Contract Stage and Claims

If, in respect of the insurance contract the insurer is not obliged to pay the full claim settlement amount until any repair, replacement or reinstatement work has been completed and specified documents for the work have been furnished to the insurer, the claim settlement deferment amount cannot exceed

5% of the claim settlement amount where the claim settlement amount is less than €40,000,

or

10% of the claim settlement amount where the claim settlement amount is more than €40,000.

 

An insurer may refuse a claim made by a consumer under a contract of insurance where there is a change in the risk insured, including as described in an “alteration of risk” clause, and the circumstances have so changed that it has effectively changed the risk to one which the insurer has not agreed to cover.

 

Any clause in a contract of insurance that refers to a “material change” will be interpreted as being a change that takes the risk outside what was in the reasonable contemplation of the contracting parties when the contract was concluded.

 

The consumer must cooperate with the insurer in an investigation of insured events including responding to reasonable requests for information in an honest and reasonably careful manner and must notify the insurer of the occurrence of an insured event in a reasonable time.

 

The consumer must notify the insurer of a claim within a reasonable time, or otherwise in accordance with the terms of the contract of insurance.

 

If the consumer becomes aware after a claim is made of information that would either support or prejudice the claim, they are under a duty to disclose it.  (The insurer is under the same duty).

 

If the consumer makes a false or misleading claim in any material respect (and knows it to be false or misleading or consciously disregards whether it is) the insurer is entitled to refuse to pay and to terminate the contract.

 

Where an insurer becomes aware that a consumer has made a fraudulent claim, they must notify the consumer advising that they are avoiding the contract of insurance.  It will be treated as being terminated from the date of the submission of the fraudulent claim.  The insurer may refuse all liability in respect of any claim made after the date of the fraudulent act, and the insurer is under no obligation to return any of the premiums paid under the contract.
