Southbank VIC 3006, Australia
What does a complaint cost?
The entire complaints process is free of charge.
What to do if you need assistance to make a complaint?
We know that accessing and understanding financial services can be difficult. If you think you may need assistance to lodge a complaint, please contact us, or arrange for your representative to contact us. We will endeavour to assist you with lodging your complaint.
We have access to the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) and National Relay Service (NRS) if required. TIS is a national interpreting service for people who do not speak English and for business who need to communicate with them. The NRS can provide a range of services for hearing and speech-impaired people.
Is your complaint about us or one of our Partners (or both)?
Diversa Trustees Limited (Diversa) and CCSL are the trustees of the Funds listed, and we work with different partners that help administer these funds. This means that when you make a complaint about your fund, it may relate to a product or service provided by one of our partners or to products or services provided by both us and our partners.
Our partners assist in providing services to you in a number of ways. They may operate call centres to assist us in responding to your queries, manage websites providing you with information about our products or provide claims management services to help us pay benefits. For more information about how our partners assist us with your fund please refer to the information for your fund.
If your complaint relates to a product or service wholly provided by one of our partners, their complaints policy will apply to the complaint and not our policy. However, if you are a member or beneficiary, we will still work with the relevant partner to ensure your complaint is managed appropriately.
If your complaint relates to products or services that both we and our partners provide then our policy will apply and we will work with the relevant service provider to ensure all of the issues you have raised in your complaint are managed appropriately.
