How a complaint is made
Complaints can be made either orally or in writing – by letter, e-mail or fax.
Step 1: Where you are familiar with the person/team working on the matter, you may address the complaint to your usual insurance advisor or Prodromou & Makriyiannis Insurance contact.
Step 2: If you are not sure to whom to refer within the company, or feel it is inappropriate to address the complaint to a member of staff, please address your complaint to: –
- The Managing Director
- Prodromou & Makriyiannis Insurance Underwriting Agencies & Consultants Ltd, P O Box 25045, 1306 Nicosia Cyprus
- Email: [email protected]

Your complaint will be acknowledged, in writing, within 2 (two) business days of the complaint being received.
A decision on your complaint will be provided to you, in writing, within 15 (fifteen) business days of the complaint being received.
