What our customers say


"It was no light decision for us to move banks as we hadn’t for 119 years! We were looking for relationship banking and this is what Handelsbanken excel in delivering."

Chairman, Corporate banking customer

"When we were looking for a bank to help us to fund our self-build project, Handelsbanken were able to offer a mortgage that was completely tailored to our needs. From the initial phone call, to the ongoing contact with our Individual banking manager, the service has been nothing short of outstanding. The bank were genuinely interested in our unique project and went out of their way to help us; visiting the site, offering advice and problem solving along the way. Handelsbanken offer a genuinely personalised service and pride themselves on building strong relationships with their clients. They liaised directly with our solicitors and the valuers and kept us up to date with each step of the process. As novice self-builders it has been incredibly reassuring to know that we are in the hands of such a professional team and we can't recommend them highly enough."

Mr & Mrs H, Individual banking customers
