What our customers say


"Handelsbanken genuinely stands out from other banks with its personal service offering. It is so refreshing to deal with individuals who know your name, take time to get to know you and understand your circumstances both personally and corporately. 

I am always dealt with quickly and efficiently, nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. If I need something doing I will pop in to the branch or pick up the phone and speak to one of the team who deal with it for me immediately and professionally. There are no call centres nor automated phone options. It is traditional banking at its best and I am delighted to be a valued customer."
