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:
