While we take serious precautions to minimise risk, mistakes will still sometimes happen. There'll be bugs. There'll be delays. There'll be outages. In short, there will be errors which we can't anticipate. But whenever plans don't unfold as expected, we want to do everything possible to listen to you, fix things for you, impress you with how we deal with your complaint and understand how we can do things better next time.
The following table shows how many complaints we received, how quickly we dealt with them, and how we are doing compared to the industry.
We submit this data to the Financial Conduct Authority every six months.
