If you are unfortunately, dissatisfied with our services, kindly inform us so that we can improve and serve you better in the future. When we receive your complaint, we will deal with it promptly, effectively and in a positive manner. We have in place a complaints handling procedure that works following the procedure below.

What is a complaint

A complaint refers to a statement or an expression of dissatisfaction/concern by a customer addressed to a financial institution in relation to access or utilization of a financial service or product. Complaints handling is one of the key objectives of consumer protection as it:

  • ensures that consumers have access to recourse mechanisms in order to timely resolve their complaints;
  • promotes transparency in the process of handling customer complaints; and
  • improves service delivery by financial institutions

How to lodge a complaint

Step 1

If, at anytime you have cause for complaint, please contact the Banking Centre Manager and/or our trained and well experienced Account Relationship Officers who will be happy to help you.

We hope that you will not then need to progress beyond this first step. However, if you remain unhappy, we want you to let us know so that your complaint can proceed quickly to the next stage.

Step 2

If you feel that your complaint has not been resolved to your satisfaction, it can be progressed to the next stage. You can write to:

The Chief Business Development Officer
CDH Investment Bank
CDH House
5 Independence Drive
P.O. Box 1444
Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We always aim to provide a full response within 5 working days, but if there is reason for further delay, we will keep you informed and let you know how the investigation is progressing.

It is expected that this process will bring the matter to a mutually agreeable solution, but if you remain unhappy then you can progress to the final stage of the Internal Complaints Procedure.

Step 3

If you remain dissatisfied you can refer you complaint to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/Managing Director of the bank indicating why you remain dissatisfied, and the CEO's office will ensure that your complaint is reviewed objectively, fairly and reasonably. You can contact him on the following:

The Chief Executive Officer
CDH Investment Bank
CDH House
5 Independence Drive
P.O. Box 1444
Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Mobile phone: 0111 821 300

We always seek to resolve complaints internally, but there may be instances when we cannot reach an agreeable solution. Either the CEO or the Chief Business Development Officer will have reviewed the details of your complaint in all cases, and we will send you a letter confirming our final response.

External complaint procedure - complaints handling through the Reserve Bank of Malawi

If you feel that your complaint has not been adequately resolved using our internal procedures, and you are still not satisfied (or 8 weeks have passed since you first raised the matter with us) you have the right to refer your complaint to the Registrar of Financial Institutions, the Reserve Bank of Malawi who regulates our services.
