At Stake, we are committed to providing exceptional service to our clients. However, we understand that there may be instances where you are not completely satisfied with our services. We value your feedback and take your concerns seriously.  This policy outlines our approach to handling complaints and ensuring that these are addressed in a fair, transparent, and timely manner.  We strive to investigate each complaint competently, diligently and impartially.

What happens after we receive your complaint

Upon receipt of your complaint, Stake will:

  • Acknowledge your complaint promptly, usually within 1 business day

  • Thoroughly assess and investigate your complaint to understand the issues and gather relevant information

  • Keep you updated of the complaint handling process 

  • Provide you with a final response, outlining our findings and proposed resolution (if any).

We understand the importance of timely resolution. While the complexity of the issue may influence the exact timeframes, we strive to provide you with a final response within 30 calendar days from the date of receiving your complaint.  If we are unable to provide you with a final response within this timeframe, we will inform you accordingly and explain the reasons for the delay; your right to complain to AFCA if you are dissatisfied; and the contact details for AFCA.

External review

If you are not happy with the response we provide, or if you have not received a response within the specified timeframes, you have the option to escalate your complaint to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).  AFCA offers a free, independent dispute resolution scheme that provides a platform for resolving disputes between consumers and financial firms.

You can contact AFCA:

Time limits may apply to complain to AFCA, so you should consult the AFCA website to find out if or when the time limit relevant to your circumstances expires.
