Complaints Handling & Disputes Resolution

Our Internal Complaints Process

If you have a problem, concern, or complaint about any part of our service, please let us know in writing so that we can try to fix the problem or concerns in a fair, timely and transparent manner.

You can make the complaint through either the following methods:

  • By sending an email to Eugene at eugene@twineadvisers.co.nz and CC in your Twine Adviser
  • By logging into your Trail client portal and pressing on the “Make a Complaint” button on the bottom right of the page.
  • When we receive a complaint, we follow an internal complaints procedure to ensure we address the issue:

    1. Acknowledge your complaint within 2 working days.
    2. Inform you how we will address the complaint.
    3. Gather any information that will help us resolve the complaint.
    4. Aim to resolve the complaint within 10 working days.

    If we cannot resolve the complaint within this timeframe, we will contact you within that time to let
    you know we need more time to consider your complaint.
