If we can’t resolve the matter straight away

Wherever possible, we will attempt to resolve the matter during your initial telephone call to us, or we may attempt to call you where appropriate. Where a more detailed investigation is required, or we have been unable to speak with you, we will acknowledge your complaint in writing within five working days of receiving it. Where possible, we will provide you with a full response within this acknowledgement letter.


Note: If we receive a complaint outside normal working hours, it is treated as if it had arrived at the start of the next working day. 


Complaints that require further investigation

We will always try to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible. However sometimes this is not possible. If we do not reach a decision in time to include it in your acknowledgement letter, as it was necessary to carry out additional investigations (eg listening to recorded calls or awaiting additional information from your broker), after 20 days we will explain why and let you know when we will next contact you.


In the unlikely event that we have not finished investigating your complaint 40 business days after we received it, we will send you a further letter to:

  • Explain why we have been unable to reach a decision
  • Let you know when you can expect our final decision
  • Provide contact details for the Financial Service & Pensions Ombudsman and explain their service

Our response

Once we have fully investigated the matter, we will write to you confirming our decision, how it was reached and any offer of redress where this is appropriate. Should you be unhappy about our response, you may refer the matter to the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman (FSPO).

The FSPO is an independent arbitration service provided free for consumers. Should you be dissatisfied with our response you may contact the FSPO, using the contact details below:
