Handling your complaint
The Firm has internal policies in place to address how complaints are managed by the Firm. Once we have received your complaint, we aim to resolve the issue as quickly as possible and in a consistent manner. Your complaint will be promptly acknowledged and investigated by the complaints management function which is independent from the functions and circumstances giving rise to the complaint. Throughout the investigatory process we will keep you up to date with our progress and aim to provide you with a substantive response. After investigation, we aim to provide you with a final response communication as soon as possible. In case of a payment services related complaint the firm will comply with the relevant provisions imposed by the Payment Services Directive II, which were implemented in § 62 ZAG (15/35 working days for response) in Germany. Furthermore, in case of MiFID complaints (i.e. complaints related to the provision of investment services or ancillary services) the independent Compliance function will review the complaints data and their resolution to ensure that all risks and problems are identified and addressed. The Firm maintains records of the complaints it receives and the measures taken for their resolution.
If required, JP Morgan will submit information with regards to your complaint to the Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BaFin) as the responsible German regulator.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
If we have not been able to resolve your complaint, or you are not satisfied with our response then you may be entitled to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service in Germany.
