What our customers say


"We recently took the decision to move all of our Corporate Banking to Handelsbanken, and I am already very pleased with the decision. As a business with ambitious expansion plans, it is essential that our bank takes the time to understand our goals and specific requirements. Our Account Manager and the team have excelled in this, giving us the confidence to accelerate our development plans. For instance, they recently created a funding suite to enable us to make an acquisition - the decision to support us was taken extremely promptly, meaning we could negotiate the transaction with real confidence. The support throughout the whole process from beginning to end was fantastic – even to the extent of supporting our discussions with our legal team. With operations in Europe, the Far East and now America, we need a Bank that can assist us on a day to day basis operationally, but also strategically as we look at other opportunities. With Handelsbanken we certainly feel as if we have the right partner bank in stark contrast from our former high street bank. I have no hesitation in recommending them."

''We decided to move our banking to Handelsbanken after several decades with the same high street bank. We found their approach to be refreshingly different, with the authority to make decisions resting with the local team, all of who are readily accessible. 

From our initial meetings, they gave us the confidence that they understood the business and were prepared to offer a straightforward financing solution to meet our ongoing requirements.

Since moving across, we have been delighted with their traditional and professional approach. They offer first class service levels and it is refreshing that each member of the team knows us and can deal with any requests quickly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend Handelsbanken and look forward to building a long-term relationship with them.''
