  • give your complaint the attention it deserves
  • resolve your complaint fairly without delay
  • make sure you are satisfied with how your complaint was resolved

How long will it take?

We aim to resolve your complaint straight away but if we can’t we will write to you within 5 business days to tell you:

  • Why we have not resolved your complaint
  • Who is dealing with your complaint
  • When we will contact you again

We will usually resolve your complaint quickly but if it is complex it may take longer.

We will keep you informed on a regular basis (and every 4 weeks as a minimum) but if you need an update please call us and ask to speak to the person handling your complaint.

If we cannot reach agreement with you

If we can’t agree a solution with you within 8 weeks, we will:

  • Send a letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a final decision
  • OR
  • Issue our summary resolution letter which will explain our final position

Our aim is to resolve all complaints internally. However, if after receiving our final decision letter or if 8 weeks have passed you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). Their contact details:

Please note: Only complaints relating to the sale of financial services are to be referred to FOS
