A relationship bank for your business

At Handelsbanken, your dedicated manager at your local branch delivers personal service and expert advice

Business banking at Handelsbanken

At Handelsbanken, relationship banking is taken seriously. We believe that our success is dependent on helping our customers achieve their financial goals. This means at each branch we make a point of understanding the local market in which we operate, and work to build long-term relationships with our customers. 

Efficient, reliable and personal service is key, with a dedicated account manager for each customer, backed by an experienced team. At the branch we have the authority to make the majority of banking decisions, provide advice and deliver solutions tailored to the needs of your business. 

Satisfaction is at the heart of what we do: we have been first for overall service quality according to the Competition and Markets Authority Independent service quality survey for the third time, since the survey began. 

Independent service quality survey results


Business current accounts

As part of a regulatory requirement, an independent survey was conducted to ask approximately 1,200 customers of each of the 15 largest business current account providers if they would recommend their provider to other small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The results represent the view of customers who took part in the survey.

One of the world's safest banks

Handelsbanken takes a prudent approach to risk, only dealing with customers we can meet and with whom we can develop a business relationship. We believe financial strength and stability is key – with one of the highest credit ratings in the UK, Handelsbanken’s Swedish parent is one of the joint top scoring commercial banks in Global Finance magazine’s ‘World’s Safest Banks’ 2022 ranking.
