We, at Fraser Financial Services (QLD) Pty Limited, believe that it is essential for our customers to be able to identify and deal with a broker who has the ability, authority and proper training to hear and respond appropriately to any complaints or disputes.  We are committed to the effective handling of complaints and timely resolution of disputes.

Receiving complaints and the complaint process :

If you have a complaint or a dispute, you have the option of either contacting your broker or lodging the complaint directly with Fraser Financial Services (QLD) Pty Limited.

You can lodge complaints with FFS by contacting the Complaints Officer by:

·         telephoning 07 5576 6299,

·         e-mailing  info@ffsqld.com.au ,

·         writing to PO Box 566, West Burleigh QLD 4219, or

·         speaking to any representative of our business who will refer you to the Complaints Officer.

·         Mr. Ian Fraser and Mrs. Kelly Fraser sit on the FFS Disputes Resolution Committee

You should explain the details of your complaint as clearly as you can.  You may do this verbally or in writing.

When we receive a complaint, we will attempt to resolve it promptly.  We hope that in this way we will stop any unnecessary and inappropriate escalation of minor complaints. 

We will observe the following principles in handling your complaint:

1.     there is no requirement for face-to-face contact between you and us, although it may be useful for us to come to a satisfactory resolution;

2.     we expect that both parties will make a genuine attempt to resolve a complaint promptly;

3.     we expect that both parties will provide all essential and relevant information, documents, written statements and any other materials that may properly and reasonably be believed to assist in resolving the complaint;

4.     we expect that both parties will comply with all reasonable requests from the other party to provide information within a reasonable time frame. 

Timeframes for response

If your complaint cannot be resolved immediately, we will respond to your request within two (2) business days of receipt of the complaint. We will keep you updated of the progress and, if resolution takes longer than five (5) business days, provide you with a written final response no later than 30 days from the date of the complaint. If resolution cannot be achieved within 30 days, we will provide a written explanation as to the reason.
