It’s fantastic to be shortlisted for this prestigious award recognising business value and innovation in my role. Working at Davy has given me the opportunity to learn so much from serving our clients while progressing in my career.’

A note from Chantal Brennan: 'Delighted to have been nominated for this award! Super to be recognized for delivering consistent investment returns for our clients using state-of-the-art investment techniques. Working at Davy has enabled me to share my passion for investing with our graduates and help them build their careers as investors.'
Some words from Niamh Prendergast: I’m delighted to be nominated for Wealth Manager of the Year. The Women in Finance awards recognise the immense value women add to the financial services industry and although we are still the minority in the industry, thankfully I see this changing. I love my role, especially getting to know and working closely with clients. I find it really rewarding helping them and their families work towards their financial goals , which in turn enables them to do the things in life that matter most to them.
