A word from the Branch Manager, Chris


"Ever since we opened our doors in 2012 we have been delivering exceptional relationship-led service to our local personal and business customers. 

We’re passionate about understanding and supporting the needs and ambitions of our customers. Not only do we get to know our customers really well we also understand the local market and are active in supporting the local community. 

You can make direct contact with us at the Bedford branch either by telephone, dropping by for a coffee or we’ll come and visit you. If you are interested in experiencing banking the ‘Handelsbanken Way’ give us a call to find out more."

What our customers say


"We have only been with Handelsbanken Bedford for 15 months but they have proven over and over again that the move was worth it.

"Having firstly approached them for a personal mortgage, we were so impressed by their ethics, personal service and efficiency, we moved all of our business banking to them also. We cannot emphasise enough how good it is to have Handelsbanken as one of our business partners. 

"Our local team are available at any time on the phone and always without fail provide the information or help we need. The switch over was easy and faultless. The online banking is really easy to use. Their Asset Finance team are quick, efficient and understand our business needs and provide a very quick turnaround. 

"A great business decision."

Corporate Banking customer

"In over 30 years in business, I have used all the major clearing banks and have endured the endless phone calls to call centres trying to solve simple problems.

"Now a quick call to my local Handelsbanken branch where I am on first name terms with most of the staff solves any problem I now have. Even better, I now get a courtesy call from the branch when an unusual payment goes through my account just make sure its not a fraudulent transaction.

"A professional, secure and personal service that is second to none."
