Please provide us with your name, address and account or reference number together with full details of your complaint.
How soon will we deal with your complaint?
One of our independent specialists will attempt to resolve your complaint within three business days following receipt. Should this not be possible, we will aim to resolve (depending on the complexity) or acknowledge your complaint in writing within five business days and include a copy of these procedures.
Your complaint will be investigated promptly, impartially and thoroughly by our specialist who will provide you with a full response at the earliest opportunity. If your complaint is particularly complex, we will need more time to investigate.
We have a regulatory obligation to send you a final written response within eight weeks, following the receipt of your complaint.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks after you first told us about it, we will inform you accordingly in writing. At this stage we will provide you with the details of the Financial Ombudsman Service, together with an explanatory leaflet. This will enable you, should you wish, to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman if you are dissatisfied with the delay. We try to resolve all complaints to our clients’ satisfaction. However, if you are unhappy after receiving our conclusions, you may wish to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service. This option will be available to you during the six months following our final response and we will provide you with an explanatory leaflet to assist, such a referral.
You can contact the Financial Ombudsman Service at:

If your complaint is about the sale of a product and you purchased through an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) you should, in the first instance, refer your complaint to that IFA. If you are considering engaging a third party to help you with your complaint, you should be aware of any additional costs involved. If you decide to employ the services of a third party, any redress due will be paid directly to you.
