We understand that occasionally issues may arise and you may have a complaint. We take complaints seriously and have a process through which we seek to resolve them.
The complaints process and the times for each step is outlined below. We aim to work within these timeframes and keep you informed of the progress of your complaint. In the unlikely event that your complaint is not resolved within a maximum of 45 days, you may wish to access external review options such as the Financial Ombudsman Service.
The first thing you should do is talk to one of our consultants or email us about your concerns. The consultant may be able to resolve the complaint for you. If not, they'll refer you to, or you may request to speak to a manager.
The consultant or manager will attempt to respond to your complaint as soon as possible. If they require more information, they'll aim to respond within 15 business days of receipt of your complaint.
If the manager cannot resolve your complaint, you may request the matter be referred to our customer relations area or you can choose to contact them via the following options:
