If you are still not satisfied
We are committed to resolving complaints whenever possible through our complaints procedures. If a matter cannot be resolved satisfactorily, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. This would depend on the nature of the complaint and whether within the rules of the Service the person making the complaint is "eligible" to refer the matter to the Ombudsman (within the eligible timeframe of 6 months set by them). The Ombudsman Service exists to provide independent adjudication and an investigation will be undertaken prior to making a decision about outstanding disputes. Alternatively the Ombudsman can be contacted direct at the following address:
