Complaints Data & Financial Ombudsman Information

 

Do you have a complaint that we were unable to resolve to your satisfaction? Please read below.

 

 

Financial Ombudsman Service

Should you have a complaint that we are unable to resolve to your satisfaction you may refer it to the Financial Ombudsman at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk, by letter to the Financial Ombudsman Service at Exchange Tower, London E14 9SR or by telephone on 0800 023 4 567 or 0300 123 9 123. Please click here for call charge information.

 

If you do not take up your complaint with us first, you will not be entitled to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

 

To encourage the use of online dispute resolution (ODR) there is an ODR platform created by the EU commission which allows consumers to submit their complaint through a central site which will forward the complaint to an appropriate alternative dispute resolution scheme. In this case it would be the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). You can contact the FOS directly using the contact details given above. For more information about ODR please visit ec.europa.eu/odr

 

 

Publication of Complaints Data

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires all companies regulated by them to publish high level information relating to complaints. The information is published twice a year for the period 1 January to 30 June and 1 July to 31 December. The FCA also requires firms to breakdown the nature of such complaints into product categories. Currently all complaints received by Vanquis Bank relate to Banking and Credit Cards, Loans and Insurance.
