complaints data – showing individual financial businesses

The two tables of figures below cover the six months from 1 Jul to 31 Dec 2016. The figures will help people to see how individual financial businesses handled their customer complaints. The tables show:

  • new cases
    The number of new cases received by the ombudsman service in this six-month period – from consumers dissatisfied with the financial business’s response to their complaint. This number is likely to reflect the size of the business involved.
  • resolved cases
    The percentage of resolved cases where the ombudsman service made a change in favour of the consumer. This change could range from £1 to £150,000.

These figures cover financial businesses only where we received at least 30 new cases and resolved at least 30 cases in the six-month period from 1 Jul to 31 Dec 2016. Complaints relating to these businesses made up around 95% of the total number of cases handled by the ombudsman service in this period.

Any questions? See our special FAQs for more details on our complaints data.

can't find the name you're looking for?
Businesses are listed in these tables under the official name by which they are regulated. But they may also operate under different brands or trading names. Check the name you’re looking for to find any related business name under which complaints data might be listed.

older data
You can also look at complaints data relating to previous six-monthly periods – but please note that business names (and brand or trading names) may have changed between periods.

This table shows the number of new cases received by the ombudsman service in the six-month period from 1 Jul to 31 Dec 2016 – from consumers dissatisfied with the financial business’s response to their complaint. This number is likely to reflect the size of the business involved.

For more details of the different financial products covered by the five main complaint categories, please see the full list of complaint product-codes [PDF format].

† From 1 July 2016 complaints about endowment products are included in the investment product grouping. This reflects changes made by the Financial Conduct Authority to how it publishes complaints data. Complaints data relating to previous six-monthly periods includes endowment products under the product group life & pensions and decumulation.

business name: the names listed alphabetically are the official names by which businesses are regulated.
business group: this is the name of any larger group that the individual business was part of at the end of the six-month period.
