Investigating your complaint

We value your relationship with your financial adviser and believe that open communication with them can often lead to quicker issue resolution. Therefore, we recommend that you consider discussing any concerns or issues with your financial adviser first, as they can provide valuable insights and assistance tailored to your specific financial situation.

If you decide to bring a complaint to our attention, we are here to assist you. To help us understand your concerns fully and resolve them effectively, we encourage you to provide any relevant documents and information you have available. This may include any correspondence related to the issue, as well as relevant names, dates, and times. This information will enable us to better assist you in addressing your concerns effectively.

Usually, our Client Services department will handle 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 is committed to promptly acknowledging all verbal and written complaints as soon as practicable, and in any case within 24 hours (or one business day) of receiving it. We typically acknowledge complaints in writing but will endeavour to acknowledge your complaint through your preferred method of communication (e.g. verbally or in writing).

We aim to resolve all complaints as soon as possible. If we require more information from you to resolve the matter, we will make a request through your preferred method of communication (e.g., verbally or 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.

In certain instances involving complex facts or circumstances, the resolution process may exceed the relevant response timeframes. Nonetheless, we are committed to providing you with regular updates on the progress of your complaint.
