We'll help you find the best solution to your needs

A word from the Branch Manager, Russell (Colchester branch)

Branch manager Russell

"Strong and lasting customer relationships, low-risk tolerance and cost-awareness are all cornerstones of Handelsbanken's culture. This kind of sustainable thinking has been integrated in how we do business for so long that it has become natural to us. 

As a team, we invest time to get to know you and aim to provide excellent service, making sensible decisions at the branch to match your needs."

It's about customer satisfaction, not targets and bonuses

It’s unusual in banking, but our colleagues don’t work to meet targets and bonuses, they work for you. We don’t run expensive marketing campaigns and rely on our reputation to meet new people, so it’s essential we deliver on excellent service. Independent surveys show our approach works; we’re consistently rated top for customer satisfaction.

"We chose Handelsbanken because of the team. They listened more than they talked, urged caution above gearing and introduced us to like-minded people. As a family business, by stressing the personal touch and long term horizons, their values chimed with ours."
