We have a written policy for handling complaints and how we ensure we deal with each complaint promptly and fairly. You can obtain a summary from us should you so request. Should you have cause to complain for any reason a copy of our policy for handling of complaints will be automatically sent to you. Please direct your complaint to Ian Painter at the company address at the bottom of this document.
Clients should be aware that if they are unhappy with any response to a complaint received from the company, they may complain directly to the Financial Ombudsman Service who will then assess whether they have an eligible complaint before proceeding with an investigation. You can contact FOS via www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk or telephone:0800 023 4567
If you are an eligible claimant under the rules of the Financial Conduct Authority, you will also be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. Compensation for investment advice is provided at £50,000 per claimant per defaulting firm. Non-Investment Protection cover for compulsory insurance is 100% of the claim with no upper limit and for other non-compulsory insurances, the cover is 90% of the claim with no upper limit.
Further information about compensation arrangements is available from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme may also provide awards if any third-party institution we may use is declared in default or insolvent.
