It is the aim of the Company to resolve any Complaint at the earliest possible stage.
Complaints can be received by various means including letter, telephone, email, Live chat or in person. All Complaints will be initially handled by a member of the Back Office/Account Opening Department.

Redress need not be financial, and can take the form of an apology. The company reserves the right to choose the method of resolution at its sole discretion.
