Acknowledgement

The Firm endeavours to send complainants a written acknowledge of complaints within 5 business days of receipt.

Complaints Investigation

The Firm will investigate the subject matter of the complaint and, where required, may contact the complainant to obtain further information to adequately investigate the complaint. The nature of the investigation will depend on the nature of the complaint but may involve interviewing relevant staff and listening to call recordings.

When possible, the Firm will ensure that the individual(s) involved in investigating complaints are independent and have not been involved in the events complained about.

Final Response

The Firm will endeavour to issue a final written response to the complaint within 8 weeks of initial receipt.

  • The Firm’s final response will either:
    • Accept the complaint and, where appropriate, offer redress or remedial action;
    • Offer redress or remedial action without accepting the complaint; or
    • Reject the complaint and give reasons for doing so.
  • If the Firm is not in a position to issue a final response within 8 weeks the complainant will be provided with a written response explaining why the Firm is not in a position to issue a final response and set out the date by which the Firm expects to be able to issue one.

    Appeal

    Complainants have the right to escalate their complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, free of charge if they are dissatisfied with the Firm’s final response or if the Firm does not issue a final response within 8 weeks.

    It is to be noted that complaints must be escalated to the Financial Ombudsman Service within six months of receiving the final response or of the 8-week deadline.
