What our customers say


"We have been with Handelsbanken almost 10 years and there has not been a day that has passed during this time that we have regretted moving from a well-known high street bank. Handelsbanken continue offer us a very bespoke tailored service. 

Whenever there have been changes in our business, Handelsbanken have been quick, efficient and on hand to act. The unique in-house decision making structure results in hassle free personal banking year after year."

Mr & Mrs P, Corporate and Individual Banking Customers

"Although our principal contact has changed on occasions, since our relationship started in 2011, the culture at the bank has not. Local decision making processes have allowed a degree of flexibility from both sides when looking at financing options, and the personal nature of the relationship is a throwback to the days when there were people who you could talk to and understood the world from both the bank's and the client's perspective and not just what is best for the bank."
