How we will deal with your complaint

We will respond to your complaint in a timely and flexible manner. Our goal is to ensure the earliest possible resolution and we will try to resolve your complaint wherever possible at the first point of contact. Where your complaint is urgent it will be prioritised.

We will ensure you have the opportunity to explain your complaint. To this end we ask that where possible, that you provide the following information about your complaint:

  • your full name, date of birth and contact details
  • if relevant, your financial adviser's or mortgage broker’s name
  • the names of any service providers, such as any investment, insurance or credit product providers, associated with your complaint
  • any identifying account numbers or other references, such as an investor number, loan number, policy number or superannuation account number
  • supporting documentation and
  • the resolution you are seeking.

We will address your complaint fairly and consistently, treating each complaint in an un-biased manner, and ensuring all allegations are investigated thoroughly. We will inform the financial adviser or mortgage broker involved about your complaint and ask them to respond to us.

Once your complaint is resolved any agreed outcomes will be implemented in a timely manner.
