Welcome to a unique banking experience

If you want a bank whose team is focused on you, not sales targets (we simply don’t have them) and where you’ll always have a dedicated account manager alongside you, you’re in the right place.

Our approach is a unique one; we’re decentralised, which means it’s the teams in our branches that make the decisions that matter to you.

We believe that having a long term relationship with you is the best way we can really help. Your account manager will get to know you and your circumstances to reach solutions that match your ambitions, whether that’s buying a property, wealth planning or taking that leap to becoming your own boss.

Why not try the Handelsbanken difference?


Our team is ready to meet you here at our Bournemouth office, or at any of our branches throughout the country.

What our customers say


"We were recommended to Handelsbanken to discuss our future commercial banking arrangements and from the first meeting through to the successful conclusion, we have been very impressed with the excellent detailed personal service and sound practical commercial advice they provided, more reminiscent of a previous banking era."

Corporate Banking customer

"I was very pleased to find that Handelsbanken is a local bank for local people where lending decisions are made in-house by people with local knowledge. I would thoroughly recommend Handelsbanken to anybody that is looking for a traditional bank that is customer focussed and needs the services that high street banks used to provide."
