At GilesSmith we’re committed to giving you the best service at all times. However, if we don’t deliver the standard of service you expect, or if we make a mistake, we need to know so we can put things right. So if you’re unhappy with any aspect of our service, please tell us. We will investigate the situation and set about putting it right as quickly as we can.
A summary of our internal complaints handling procedures for the reasonable and prompt handling of complaints is available on request and if you cannot settle your complaint with us, you may be entitled to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk or by contacting them on 0800 023 4 567.
You can telephone, write or send an email detailing your complaint at:
The Compliance Officer
GilesSmith Wealth Management LLP
27 East Street
or contact a member of staff at one of our branches.
We aim to resolve all complaints by the close of three working days after the date the complaint is received. If this is not possible, we will let you know that we have received your complaint and are investigating it.
Within four weeks of receiving your complaint we will explain what caused the problem and what steps we have taken to put it right. If we have been unable to settle the complaint by this time then we will tell you why and what we are doing to resolve the issue. We will also tell you when we will be in touch again.
We will send you a final response within eight weeks explaining the outcome of your complaint.
If you are still not satisfied or if eight weeks have passed since you first raised your complaint with us you have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). We will send you instructions of how to do so at that point.
We subscribe to the Financial Ombudsman Service
The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) provides consumers with a free independent service for resolving disputes with financial organisations.
The FOS will only investigate a case when the financial institution has had the opportunity to put things right. They allow GilesSmith Wealth Management LLP up to eight weeks to deal with your complaint. If you are still not satisfied, you must take your complaint to FOS no later than six months from the date of our final response letter.
