Our vision is to be a world class investment management services provider, delivering exceptional customer value and helping people achieve more through the excellence and integrity of our employees.
In order to achieve our vision we:
This means that we aim to ensure that our products meet the needs of our customers. At the product design stage, we ensure that our target market is identified and we select our distribution channels accordingly.
This means understanding our customers' needs. If relevant, and where appropriate, we will consult with customers and distributors. We will also analyse complaints and other feedback from customers. Our products all undergo a regular review process which monitors fund performance.
This means making sure that the information we give to our customers about their product options and features is clear and fair and given at an appropriate time. We will use plain English or explain jargon where we cannot avoid using it. If there is a risk that our customer might be adversely affected by a particular course of action because of their particular needs and circumstances, we will encourage that customer to seek advice on the best course of action to take before making any decisions.
This means we will provide a reliable and accurate service which meets the needs of our customers. We will ensure that all of our staff are trained.
This means we will deal with customer queries, requests or complaints in a professional and courteous manner, within reasonable timescales. We will tell customers what our timescales are and let them know if these change.
One of the ways that we know we are achieving our aims and objectives on treating customers fairly is from customer feedback, whether good or bad.
