Complaints Policy

A summary of our complaints handling processes are detailed below:

1. A complaint or issue of dissatisfaction should be addressed to the Firm in the following ways:

In writing to: Director of Operations at 15 Old Bailey, London EC4M 7EF.
By phone: 020 3700 7391
By email: david.pickles@squaremileresearch.com

2. On receipt of your communication we will undertake an assessment as to whether this is a complaint and should be handled in line with our internal complaints policy.

If the communication is a complaint, we will endeavour to provide you with a resolution within three business days. We will provide you with a written summary resolution, which will contain details as to how you can escalate your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”) if you are an eligible complainant, should you be satisfied with our resolution.

Within our written resolution we will provide details as to any findings we have made as a result of our investigation into your complaint and whether any remedial action will be taken by ourselves. We will ask you to confirm if you are satisfied with our conclusion.

If you are not satisfied with our conclusion, we will not close your complaint and will continue to seek resolution. You may raise your complaint to the FOS if you feel dissatisfied with our resolution.

3. If we feel your complaint requires further review and we cannot respond to you with a resolution within three business days we will inform you of this. We will provide you with details of who is responsible for handling your complaint at the Firm as they will provide you with updates.

We will provide you with a written Final Response Letter within eight weeks of the date of your original complaint. Within this letter we will provide details as to any findings we have made as a result of our investigation into your complaint and whether any remedial action will be taken by ourselves. We will ask you to confirm if you are satisfied with our conclusion.
