Global Events

Climate attribution remains easier for some weather events than others and temperature records are the simplest data to link to any immediate climate change.

However, earthquakes, tropical storms and volcanos can and will have an immediate effect on global and localised weather — which are influenced by a complex interplay of sudden temperature changes and extreme low and high precipitation intervals.

RMD is committed to being responsive to the needs and concerns of our customers or potential customers and to resolving all complaints as quickly as possible.

If you are dissatisfied with a service provided, incorrect statements or if you have any other complaint please contact Jeanne-Marie van Zyl at the RMD Compliance Department directly.

Acknowledgement of receipt of the compliant will be sent to you. The Compliance Department will investigate the matter as soon as reasonably possible. Where necessary, and with the approval of the client, the complaint will be escalated to either RMD’s Directors, or the JSE, or the FSB whichever is applicable.

Due to legal requirements you might be required to submit your complaint in writing. Following the complaint investigation, we will notify you as soon as possible of our findings, and any possible actions.

If the complaint is resolved, and you, the customer, have confirmed that you are satisfied with the outcome, this will be seen as finalised.

If your complaint is not resolved in six weeks or not resolved to your satisfaction, RMD will provide you in writing with an explanation, and possible reasons for this.

FAIS prescribes that you may submit your complaint to the FAIS Ombud in writing, backed by supporting documentation, within 6 months

The FAIS Ombud will then notify RMD of the complaint received, and request a written response. Once the FAIS Ombud has reviewed RMD’s written response and this was forwarded to the plaintiff, you will have two weeks to decide whether to pursue the claim or not.

If you choose to pursue the claim, the FAIS Ombud will endeavor to resolve the matter with mediation and consultation, and then present both RMD and the customer with a recommendation in writing.

If both parties agree to this, it becomes the final recommendation, and it will be communicated to the relevant Clerk of the Court.

However, if one of the parties does not agree with the FAIS Ombud’s recommendation, the FAIS Ombud is to be notified in writing to consider the claim and make another recommendation, if need be.

If both parties agree to this recommendation, it will then be sent to the Registrar, all parties involved, and the Clerk of the Court who has jurisdiction over this matter

However, if either party disagrees with the Ombudsman’s final recommendation, they may apply for appeal against this outcome within one month. This matter will then be handled by the Board of Appeal.

RMD is committed to being consistent, fair and impartial when handling complaints. When you lodge a complaint your personal details will be treated as confidential, unless you give permission that it might be disclosed.

Please feel free to contact Jeanne-Marie, or any member of management of RMD, if you have any additional questions
