Axi is committed to:

To achieve the above, we rely on your cooperation with our complaint handling staff by providing clear information and behaving reasonably.

What is a complaint?

Axi defines a complaint as “an expression of dissatisfaction made to us by clients, related to our trading products or services, staff or our handling of a complaint, where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected or legally required”, which is derived from Australian Standard AS/NZS 10002:2014 Guidelines for complaint management in organizations (“AS/NZS 10002:2014”) and ASIC RG271.

External Dispute Resolution

If there are circumstances where the complaint has been fully considered under Axi’s internal complaints procedure and has not been resolved to your satisfaction, you have the option of having the complaint heard by External Dispute Resolution bodies– the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) and the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA)

AFCA is an independent external dispute resolution scheme approved by Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) who will make a determination after reviewing your complaint and all relevant issues, for example any relevant laws.

DFSA is the independent regulator of financial services conducted in or from the DIFC, a purpose-built financial free zone in Dubai, UAE. Depends on the types of complaints, the DFSA might consider your case.

You can contact AFCA or the DFSA in the following manner:
