How to resolve a complaint

If you have a problem…we can help

At CIBC FirstCaribbean we take your concerns and complaints seriously and are committed to doing all we can to resolve all issues that come to our attention as quickly as possible.

Our employees, where you do your banking are best placed to address your concerns and work with you until you are satisfied. If you have a complaint we encourage you to review our Complaints Management Policy and let us know following the steps outlined here:


Step 1: Tell us about it where you do your banking

Most concerns can be quickly resolved simply by bringing them to the attention of the Branch Manager or a member of the management team where you do your banking.

Our aim is to bring full resolution to your complaint within 10 business days. By this time in the majority of cases, we expect to be able to advise you that the matter has been made right to your satisfaction. If we are unable to resolve your complaint within this timeframe, we will advise you and continue to keep you informed of our progress towards resolution.


Step 2: Is there more we can do?

Our team is here to help. Should the complaint not be resolved to your satisfaction where you do your banking, you may refer the issue to the Customer Relations Officer by email or telephone as follows:

Tel: 876-935-4959

  • You should provide the following information:
  • Name and contact information (including email address)
  • The nature of the complaint
  • Details relevant to the complaint and with whom it has already been discussed


Step 3: Refer to the Managing Director’s Office

We expect this to be the exception, but if the problem is not resolved following the steps above you may consider escalating the matter, in writing, to the Managing Director:

Managing Director’s Office
CIBC FirstCaribbean Jamaica
23-27 Knutsford Boulevard
Kingston 5

Please let us know why you remain dissatisfied, and the Managing Director’s office will ensure that your complaint is reviewed objectively, fairly and reasonably and respond as quickly as possible.


Step 4: Refer to the Regulator

In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied with the decision taken you may refer the matter to the appropriate regulator for review.
