We are full members of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) and are subject to the MFAA Code of Practice; as well as being members of The Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA), an independent external dispute resolution scheme.

The AFCA rules require you to attempt to resolve your complaints with the member of AFCA (Ortus Financial Pty Ltd ABN 34 635 111 198) in the first instance via our Internal Dispute Resolution (IDR) process. If the matter is not resolved to your satisfaction through the IDR process, then you are able to lodge the complaint with AFCA for them to consider. If you lodge a complaint with AFCA before Ortus Financial has had an opportunity to resolve the complaint with you directly, AFCA will refer it to Ortus Financial before it can be considered further.
