We make complaints resolution a high priority and find that most issues can be resolved within a few days. There may be times - if the investigation is complex and/or further enquiries have to be made - that the process takes longer. In these circumstances, we shall keep you informed of any progress.
Investigating your complaint
We recommend that you discuss the issue with your financial adviser first. If you then wish to make a complaint to us, please provide us the relevant documents and other supporting information including detailed records of letters, names, times and dates relating to your complaint so that we can assist you. Usually, our Client Services department will be handling your complaint and will communicate with you directly. In some circumstances a complaint may need further investigation and our Complaints Handling Officer may contact you. Praemium Australia Ltd will acknowledge all verbal and written complaints. If you write to us, we will send you a written acknowledgment within 2 working days following receipt of the complaint. We aim to resolve all complaints as soon as possible. If we require more information to resolve the matter we will make a request in writing. When our investigations are complete we will send you a final response letter that explains the results of our investigation and what action we propose to take. We shall endeavour to always keep you informed of the progress made in investigating your complaint. If we cannot resolve the matter within 45 days of receiving your complaint we will provide a written explanation as to why the issue remains unresolved.
