These details might include as a minimum; the nature, date and method of communication of the complaint, your details, how the complaint was dealt with (outcomes), whether the complaint was upheld or refuted, whether the complaint was closed or whether it remains open and outstanding and what financial redress or other significant outcome resulted from the complaint.

    We will write to inform you of the progress of the measures being taken for the complaint's resolution.

    If you respond to our Initial Response, we will acknowledge receipt of response with 5 working days.

  6. Final Response

    All complaints should be resolved promptly and within a maximum of fifteen (15) working days from the date of the official receipt of the complaint.

    When an answer cannot be provided within the expected time limits, Weezzo will inform you, in writing, about the causes of the delay before the expiry deadline and indicate the time period within which the company's’ investigation is likely to be completed.

  7. Complaints Records

    We retain records of all complaints received and the measures taken for five years from the date the complaint was received. This record may be used to help the Financial Ombudsman if necessary.

    In handling complaints, we aim to identify and remedy any recurring or systematic problems, for example, by:

    • Analyzing the causes of individual complaints so as to identify whether there are any root causes common to types of complaint;
    • Considering whether such root causes may also affect other processes or products, including those not directly linked to your complaint; and
    • Where we can reasonably do so, correcting such root causes.

    Financial Ombudsman Service

    The Financial Ombudsman Service is an independent and government-backed service designed to help retail consumers and small commercial businesses who find themselves in a dispute with a financial organization such as us.

    The FOS can be contacted at any point in a dispute providing the complainant has first contacted the financial organization with whom the dispute relates to.

    The Financial Ombudsman can consider complaints about a wide range of financial matters – from insurance and mortgages to savings and investments. They are not a regulator or trade body or a consumer champion – their role is to take an objective standpoint and help settle disputes.

    Consumers do not have to accept any decision made by the Financial Ombudsman and at all times the consumer has the right to seek redress in a court should they so wish.
