Business Banking Switch

Handelsbanken is participating in the Business Banking Switch, where eligible Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) customers can benefit from cash incentives by switching to Handelsbanken

Local relationship banking

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. 

Incentive payments for Business Banking Switch

If eligible, you could receive incentive payments for switching your banking to Handelsbanken. Subject to conditions, incentive payments are paid in two payments. The first payment is at 5 months and the second at 13 months after moving your banking to Handelsbanken. As part of the switching process, your local branch will be able to provide you with more information on incentive payments when they contact you.

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 14 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’ 2019 ranking.
