FINANCIAL SERVICES GUIDE
What should you do if you have a complaint?
If you have a complaint or concern regarding the financial planning services provided to you by your financial adviser, which has not been satisfactorily resolved by your adviser within 5 days, we encourage you to take the following steps:
Contact our Brisbane-based Complaints Manager on +61 7 3608 6888, or alternatively you can send an email detailing your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon lodgement of a complaint, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt and an indication of the time frame in which SPW will respond to the complaint. For Financial Planning related complaints, SPW has 45 days following the lodgement date to notify you of its decision with relation to the complaint. If the complaint is not resolved within the time frame set above, following the lodgement of the initial complaint date, the Complaints Manager will inform you of the reasons for the delay.
If your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction you have the right to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). As a condition of licensing, SPW is required to be a member of an external dispute resolution body.
