Our Complaints Process
Your complaint will be investigated by an employee of sufficient competence, who, if applicable, was not involved in the subject matter of the complaint.
We aim to resolve all complaints in a fair and speedy manner, usually by close of business on the business day following receipt of the complaint. If we cannot resolve the complaint within this time, we will:
- Acknowledge your complaint in writing within 5 working days with either a full response or information about the progress of your matter and a contact name for future reference;
- Provide you with a final response and redress (if appropriate) within 4 weeks of receipt of your complaint. In some cases, a complaint may require more complex investigations and may take longer to resolve. We will aim to resolve such complaints within 8 weeks. If this is the case with your complaint we will let you know.
If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of your complaint and you are an eligible complainant, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) within 6 months of our final response.
Generally, an Eligible Complainant is one who is:
- a private policyholder or an enterprise that employs fewer than 10 people and has a turnover of less than €2 million at the time the complaint is made;
- a charity which has an annual income of less than £1 million at the time the complaint is made;
- a trustee of a trust which has a net asset value of less than £1 million at the time the complaint is made.
We will include a web link to the Financial Ombudsman Service’s explanatory leaflet with final response letters. Copies can also be obtained free of charge from us, or from the Financial Ombudsman Service at the address below.

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and, depending on your status, you may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we are unable to meet our obligations.
