RBC's Office of the Ombudsman
RBC has its own ombudsman to whom you are able to refer your complaint, if you wish. The Office of the Ombudsman provides clients with an appeal mechanism for unresolved issues and ensures that all parties involved in a dispute receive a fair and impartial hearing. The Ombudsman aims to ensure that you are treated with consideration and respect, and that everyone involved in the proceedings retains their dignity and privacy.
The Ombudsman is empowered to examine commitments made by member companies of RBC and to review their compliance with proper business procedures.
The United Kingdom Financial Ombudsman Service
Clients of RBC's United Kingdom operations may also have recourse to the UK Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”). If your complaint is outstanding after eight weeks then we shall write to let you know that even though we have not been able to conclude the matter, you are entitled to take the matter to the FOS without further delay.
Otherwise, if you are advised that the matter has been concluded by us, but you are not satisfied with our final response, you can contact the FOS, subject to you doing so within six months of the date of our final response.
In the UK we are authorised and regulated by the two main regulators (Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority). For information on a specific entity regulated status then please click here.
