What our customers say


"Handelsbanken is one of the reasons my business has grown and grown over recent years. They are the best bank AND the best partners a business could ever have. 

When we started with Handelsbanken, my company’s systems were struggling to cope with our growing overseas markets. A few months later, the team in Morpeth had set us up in four countries with four different currencies, advised us on managing company growth, helped us to buy a superb office in Alnwick, and eased our transition from a small company of three to an international team of 20+ and rising. 

Nothing is ever a bother for them. Meetings are face-to-face and at our offices at a time to suit us. Everyone in Morpeth knows the key people in my team and are always ready to listen and to help. The advice they offer is outstanding and the service second to none. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to other business across the region." 

Corporate Banking customer

"Handelsbanken is an altogether different experience. When I ring my branch, the call is answered by somebody who knows who I am and, as often as not, they’ll say something like “Oh hi Alistair, how was your son’s rugby at the weekend?” They have an office just 10 minutes from our premises here in Northumberland and I can see my manager at very, very short notice. What’s more, he fully understands my business and personal banking needs. 

In fact, I’m so pleased with him, I bought him lunch just a couple of weeks ago! That never happened with the UK banks I can assure you!"
