Head of Client Services, ref Complaint — CRUX Asset Management Ltd. 48 Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5JG
We make complaints our highest priority and find that most issues can be resolved within a few days. There may be times, for example 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 progress.
Investigating Your Complaint
Under most circumstances our Client Services department will be handling your complaint and will communicate with you directly. In some circumstances a complaint may need to be referred to our Compliance department, in which case you may receive a response from them.
CRUX Asset Management Ltd will send you a written acknowledgment within 2 working days following the receipt of your complaint; if at all possible we will provide a resolution at this time. 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 have not been able to issue a Final Response Letter within eight weeks of receiving your complaint we will provide a written explanation as to why the issue remains unresolved and will tell you when we expect to be in a position to resolve your complaint.
Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)
CRUX Asset Management Ltd is covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). You may refer your complaint to the FOS if you are still unhappy after receiving the Final Response Letter or if you have not received the Final Response Letter within eight weeks of us receiving your complaint. We will provide an FOS leaflet to you any time upon request. We will include a leaflet with our Final Response Letter or send you one if we are unable to resolve matters by the end of the eighth week following receipt of your complaint.
