ENGAGE FINANCIAL SERVICES LTD –  Complaints Procedure

We take care to maintain the highest standards of service. Where we become aware of client concerns or unease we give priority to resolving the matter as quickly as possible and ensuring that your concerns are handled fairly and within reasonable timescales.

You can contact us regarding a complaint via any of the following contact methods:

Via telephone:    020 3637 7007

Via email:            hello@engagefs.co.uk

In writing:            Engage Financial Services Ltd, The Stanley Building, 7 Pancras Square, Kings Cross, London, N1C 4AG.  

 

Upon receipt of a complaint we will do all we can to resolve your concerns within three business days, and confirm this to you in writing. If we can’t do this we will write to you, normally within five business days, to acknowledge your complaint and to let you know when we expect to be able to issue a full response.

A senior person who, where possible, is independent of the case, will investigate your complaint. You will be given their name and contact details.

When acknowledging your complaint, especially in the case of an oral complaint, we will set out the nature of the complaint and may request further clarification if necessary. Your complaint will be investigated using our files together with reports from other parties if relevant. We may also write to you if further information is required. We will keep you informed of the progress of the complaint investigation.

After eight weeks, if a final response letter has not already been sent to you, you will receive;

  • A final response letter detailing our conclusions and resolution to the complaint. This letter will also confirm that if you remain dissatisfied with our final response that you may refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) within six months of the date of our final response letter, otherwise you would lose this referral right. A copy of the FOS leaflet ‘your complaint and the Ombudsman’ will be enclosed, if not already supplied.

OR

  • A response that we are still not in a position to make a final response, giving the reasons for the further delay and indicating when we expect to be able to provide a final response;

AND

  • Informing you that you may refer your case to the FOS if you are dissatisfied with the delay. A copy of the FOS leaflet ‘your complaint and the Ombudsman’ will be enclosed, if not already supplied.

Please bear in mind that if your complaint involves information from third parties some delays could be beyond our control. We will however, pursue information on a regular basis.

 

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)

 The Financial Ombudsman Service handles individual complaints that consumers and financial businesses haven't been able to resolve themselves. The Ombudsman can look at complaints about a wide range of financial matters including investments, pensions and insurance. More information about the Ombudsman can be found at: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk.

FOS will not normally review your complaint until we have issued our final response or until eight weeks have passed since we received your complaint.

 

In the event that we receive a complaint that is not about us, or our services, and assuming that we can identify the firm to whom the complaint should be addressed, we will carry out the following action:

  • We will write to the firm concerned, explaining that we believe the complaint to be theirs, and suggesting that they contact you, the client, directly.

  • We will enclose a copy of the original complaint letter.

  • We will write to you, the client, giving contact details of the firm, and invite you to get in touch with them. We will also enclose a copy of the letter we send to the firm.

  • We will copy the new firm in on this letter as well.
