What our customers say


"The daunting process of changing banks after being with another bank for 20 years was made effortless, seamless and stress free. 

We had many different accounts intertwined with legal agreements, overdraft facilities and loans. The professionalism of the team at Handelsbanken was exceptional, and their interactivity with our personnel in the changeover demonstrated their abilities, willingness and commitment to their bank, propelling it forward as the one to be with. 

It’s refreshing in this day and age of faceless electronic banking where everything has to be referred to another department or office, that you can actually speak to a manager and his team and get a decision or help immediately. "

Stephen Grindrod, Director, Salt Separation Services Ltd

"It is very rare these days to find companies like Handelsbanken, let alone a bank. When my current bank, whom I’ve banked with for over 40 years, couldn’t help with a funding project, my solicitor introduced me to Handelsbanken, the best thing he ever did, they were fantastic! 

Not only did they call me to set up a meeting, they then came to my home to discuss my project and took a real and sincere interest right from the start. Needless to say it got the green light from them in a very short space of time. 

I really couldn’t recommend the Bury branch highly enough, every single person just wants to help. It really is personal banking at it’s best."

Mr AG, Individual Banking Customer
