Steps in the complaints process
We’ll acknowledge your complaint as soon as practicable, generally within two (2) business days of receiving your complaint.
Most complaints can be resolved on the spot or within days. We’ll keep you informed and if we can’t resolve your complaint to your satisfaction within five (5) business days we will respond to you in writing. We will advise you of the process we will undertake to resolve your complaint along with other relevant information.
If the resolution of your complaint is delayed and a resolution is not expected to be finalised:
- for complaints relating our funds management business, within 30 calendar days of the date on which we first received your complaint; and
- for complaints relating to our credit business that involve default notices, hardship notices or enforcement proceeding, within 21 calendar days of the date on which we first received your complaint,
we will notify you in writing that the resolution of your complaint will be delayed and we will provide reasons for the delay.
Once the investigation into your complaint is final, you will be notified in writing and you will be provided with the details you may need should you wish to appeal the outcome.
