Complaints Procedure

CurrencyFair Complaints Procedure

CurrencyFair is committed to providing our customers with the highest standard of service, through our product and our Customer Experience team. However, we understand that occasionally there may be times where our product or service do not meet your needs. If this is the case you should contact our Customer Experience team at support@currencyfair.com so that we can understand and rectify your concerns or issues when possible. Our Customer Experience team members will be pleased to help. From experience, many customer issues can be easily resolved at this early stage.

If your concerns cannot be resolved at the first point of contact, the matter will be referred to CurrencyFair’s Customer Experience Team Lead/ Manager. They will then do their utmost to help support and resolve any issue or grievance you have.

At this stage, if the issue has not been resolved to your satisfaction, you will be asked to set out your issue in writing, providing as much detail as you can so that we can fully investigate your complaint. Although you have the right to make a formal complaint verbally, in order for us to gain clear understanding of your issues, once you have expressed a wish to make a complaint we will ask you to submit your complaint by email, clearly detailing your CurrencyFair ID and outlining fully the nature of your complaint.

All of our team receive full training on recognising, managing and escalating a complaint. Our complaints procedure and your rights as a consumer are outlined below. The procedure has been designed in line with the recommendations and requirements of our regulators and the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman (Ireland) / Financial Ombudsman Service (Australia).

When you make a formal complaint to us we will:

  • Acknowledge your complaint in writing within five business days; providing you with a reference number and contact details;
  • Make sure we understand the issues and, when necessary, contact you should we require any additional information regarding your case;
  • Do everything we can to fix the problem;
  • Keep you informed of progress;
  • Keep a record of your complaint;
  • Provide a final response to you within 40 business days, including an explanation of our decisions and reasons for our actions.
