Financial companies are now required to report all complaints received from customers. This is a different approach from previous reports, where those complaints that had been resolved by the end of the following business day were not reported. Therefore these figures are not directly comparable to previous publications.
The figures below show how these relate to the number of accounts in each grouping, to allow comparisons to be made with other financial organisations on a consistent basis.
Complaints are very important to us. We use complaints to understand where our customers aren’t happy with our service so we can make improvements. We always do our best to deal with complaints as quickly and fairly as possible. Our complaints process has been designed with customers at its heart. If you have a complaint, please get in touch and we’ll do all we can to resolve the matter with you.
