The Financial Ombudsman Service is governed by an independent board of consumer representatives and financial services industry representatives. The role of the Board is to monitor the performance of the Financial Ombudsman Service, provide direction to the Ombudsman on policy matters, set the budget and review from time to time, the Terms of Reference including the jurisdictional limits of the Ombudsman.
