Cater Allen Private Bank is a part of Santander Private Banking and in turn part of the Santander Group.
Santander and Cater Allen take customer service very seriously and work hard across all areas of our business to continually improve for our clients and introducers.
We also recognise that we still need to do more and we have many measures in place to prevent errors happening in the first place and to resolve issues quickly when they do arise. We are committed to improving our service and putting matters right when things go wrong.
Cater Allen Private Bank and the UK’s major banks and building societies are required by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) to publish details of the number of complaints received if this number exceeds 500 in the first or second half of the calendar year. In the second half of 2011, the number of complaints received by Cater Allen was below this figure.
You can find details of our complaint volumes from previous periods in this section.
