Complaints Procedure

With the introduction of the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Act, all financial service providers (FSP) are required to be members of an approved external dispute resolution scheme.   Peak Portfolio Management Ltd is a member of FSCL (Financial Services Complaints Ltd). If you have a complaint about any aspect of our service please contact Shelley Hanna.  If you have any complaints you should call us first, in an endeavour to come to a mutually satisfactory resolution. We will provide you with information about our internal complaints process, the Financial Markets Authority, and my Disputes Resolution Scheme, FSCL (Financial Services Complaints Ltd). I will try in the first instance to resolve the complaint internally.   If I am unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, then you may make the complaint to the FSCL (Financial Services Complaints Ltd) of which we are a member. 

All complaints not resolved by Peak Portfolio Management Ltd after 40 days are referred to FSCL as part of the resolution process.  This has a three-step process. We are bound by the outcome of that process. You can choose to be bound by the outcome but you can also choose to pursue other legal avenues. The FSCL contact details are:

Website:                      www.fscl.org.nz
Email:                          info@fscl.org.nz
Telephone:                   0800 347 257
Fax:                            04 472 3727
 
Postal Address:             PO Box 5967
                                  Lambton Quay
                                  Wellington 6145
In the event that the first two steps prove unsatisfactory then a complaints process exists within the Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA), of which I am a member and by which I am bound. The IFA can be contacted at P.O. Box 5513, Wellington, Ph: (04) 499 8062; Fax: (04) 499 8064.
 
Any complaints referred to the IFA are recorded, and then investigated to determine likely degree of seriousness, then depending on the level of severity handled by IFA National Office staff directly with the client concerned, or referred on to a Professional Complaints Committee consisting of a legally qualified chair-person and two professionally credentialed advisers to resolve.
 
This can be a lengthy and sometimes frustrating process for those involved, and is restricted to only those complaints that breach the IFA’s own rules. It does not allow for civil litigation. I would urge any dissatisfied clients to resolve any issues personally and directly with me if at all possible.’

Some complaints can be made directly to the Financial Markets Authority.  You can find guidance on Financial Adviser complaints on their website here.
