Advisor or Provider
From time-to-time clients express dissatisfaction to their adviser about the product/provider/manufacturer. We will need to establish whether your complaint relates to the advice given, the adviser service or the service or performance of the product/provider/manufacturer. If unclear, this must not delay investigation and we will proceed with our own investigation. We will review this matter and take the complaint to the provider/manufacturer if appropriate in consultation with you.
We will work with the relevant department manager to establish the nature and scope of your complaint.
In situations where we require further time to investigate your complaint, we will issue a holding letter informing you of this, we also advise in this letter that you would have our final response within eight weeks of the date of receipt of your complaint.
This will set out clearly the firm’s decision and the reasons for it. If any compensation is offered a clear method of calculation will be shown.
Closing a complaint
We will consider a complaint closed when we have made our final response to you. Our intention is always to provide a fair outcome for all parties. This outcome does not affect your legal statutory rights.
