How do I make a complaint?

Making a complaint

Octopus Investments Aust Pty Ltd (“Octopus Investments, we or us”) is committed to effective and efficient complaints management and to fair and transparent dealings in the financial marketplace

A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction made to or about an organisation, related to its products, services, staff or the handling of a complaint, where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected or legally required.
