Meet the team
What our customers say
"The approach to Handelsbanken arose owing to a breakdown in the relationship with our previous bankers. I made the decision to move to Handelsbanken based on my initial meeting with Jim and Andy. As with any move to a “new” system, establishing the infrastructure to ensure business continues as efficiently as possible is daunting. However, the potential difficulties were negated by the hands-on approach by the local team. The local team came to our premises and demonstrated the system in depth. I am delighted with the simplicity of the system which exceeds the company’s requirements and has saved significant administration time in comparison to the previous banking system. It has never failed and is exceptionally user friendly.
"The most pleasing element of the move to Handelsbanken has been a return what commercial banking should be – a positive working relationship with the individuals who are proactive, personable and always there when you need them for any query no matter how significant. In this respect, I can’t fault the Canterbury team who demonstrate a great deal of professionalism at all times. All staff I have dealt with have exceeded my expectations.
"I can state with categorical honesty that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Handelsbanken Canterbury as a bank to partner with."
Chris Parsons, Finance Director, Halsion Ltd
"I turned to Handelsbanken on the recommendation of my business partner. Having suffered years of tele-banking, anonymous personnel, and a world devoid of flexibility, I needed to find a service that could help me manage my ever-increasingly complex financial affairs. Handelsbanken took the challenge without hesitation. Faces and names came together and decisions to help my projects were practically instantaneous.
"The service runs with modern intellect and systems but based on the old High Street bank model namely the managers have significant control of their P&L, underwriting, and service definition. Moreover they want to know, and get to know, their clients very quickly which means I spend more time discussing my personal risks than I do filling in generic forms. I have actively been recommending Handelsbanken to my associates ever since."
