How To Complain

Here at First Trust Finance we take complaints very seriously.

How Does It Work?

  1. Contact us on the telephone number or email address below. We’ll do all we can to deal with your complaint immediately. If your complaint cannot be resolved by the end of the next working day, we will write to you within five working days to acknowledge it has been received and confirm our understanding.
  2. We will provide you with a response to any issues you have raised. We will endeavour to do this as quickly as possible.
  3. If we are unable to fully respond to the issue within 28 days, we will contact you to explain why this has not been possible, keep you informed of the complaint’s progress and let you know when we will contact you again.
  4. After a further 28 days we will contact you again – either with a full response or reasons why we have been unable to provide this. If we are unable to provide a full response, we will inform you of any rights you have to refer the matter on to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

In the vast majority of cases, we are able to resolve issues quickly and satisfactorily by dealing with our customers directly. However, if you feel your complaint has not been fully or fairly dealt with, you may have the option of contacting the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) who may be able to take the matter further. You have six months from the date of our final response to refer your complaint to FOS.
