Complaint handling

The satisfaction of our Investors and Clients is of utmost priority to us. We have therefore established a point of entry for complaints, which you can turn to if you want to convey criticism. Beyond the compliance with legal obligations, your comments are valuable to us to allow to continuously optimize our processes.

PCM is subject to the supervision of the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (“CSSF”). The Management Company has adopted a Complaint Handling Policy for managing investor complaints in an effective manner. Investors and Clients may file complaints free of charge in one of the official languages of their EU Member State.

Any complaint shall be sent to the attention of the Complaint Handling Officer, via email at: complaints@probus.lu.

The Complaint Handling Officer upon receipt of an investor’s or client’s complaint will take the following steps:

  • An acknowledgment letter or email will be sent to the Investor or Client within ten business days after receipt of the complaint where the complaint cannot be closed within these ten business days.
  • The Investor or Client will be informed of the name of the person handling the complaint.
  • An answer will be provided to the Investor or Clientwithout undue delay. It must be handled within a period which will not exceed one month between the date of receipt of the complaint and the date at which the answer is sent.
  • When the Complaint Handling Officer cannot provide an answer within this period, the Complaint Handling Officer informs the Investor or Client of the causes of delay and indicates a timeframe for resolution.

PCM informs Investors and Clients of the existence of out-of-court dispute settlement procedure with the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (the “CSSF”). This out-of-court resolution applies when the complainant did not receive a response or satisfactory response within one month of a complaint being submitted to the Management Company. In this case, the complainant can refer to the CSSF by the following means:

  • Either by post to: the CSSF, 110 route d’Arlon, L-2991 Luxembourg
  • Or by e-mail at: direction@cssf.lu
