How our online application process works

  • An online application for the Davy Select Personal Investment Account is available for execution-only clients. (Please note that corporates currently cannot avail of an online application. Please contact Davy Select for further information on opening a corporate account).

  • Once you have filled in your details you will be asked to upload your supporting documents. These will be attached to the account application.

Before you can submit your completed application, you must sign it. This can be done digitally. For more details on how to do this please see the ‘Signing your digital application’ section below.

Save and resume your online application

You can save and resume your application at any time by clicking the 'Save and resume later' button on the left-hand side of the screen on desktop devices or in the menu on mobile devices. 

Take note of your application reference, which is displayed on every page of the application. You will need this to resume your application. 

Once you save the application, you will be sent an email with a link to resume the process. This email will also contain your application reference code.

Two – Factor authentication

When you are resuming an application, you will be prompted to enter a two-factor verification code for security purposes. This verification code will be sent by SMS to the mobile phone number you entered in the application. 

If you are resuming a joint application, you will be asked if you are applicant 1 or applicant 2. This will determine which mobile phone number the two-factor verification code will be sent to.  

Single vs. joint application

If you are applying for a joint account, both applicants must complete the information in the application. 

Email addresses can be unique to each applicant.

For joint applications the mobile number must be unique for each applicant.

Signing your digital application

Once you have uploaded your verification documents you will be asked to complete your application by signing it.

In the case of joint accounts, the signature process will then be repeated for the second account applicant. Please note that in the case of joint accounts we cannot start processing your application until we have received signatures from both applicants. 

How do I check on the status of an application? 

We endeavour to open all accounts within 48 hours once we have received all necessary documents.

Once your account has been set up you will receive a call from a member of the Davy Select account opening team to inform you of your client account reference number. Your client account reference number is a 7-digit number which you will need for trading on your account. 

We will then send you your username and password in the post to the address which you have provided. These details will be required when you are logging into myDavy.
