What our customers say


"Handelsbanken is one of the reasons my business has grown and grown over recent years. They are the best bank (not saying much) AND the best partners (that is saying a lot) 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, Graeme and his team in Morpeth had set us up in 4 countries with 4 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 3 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." 

James Nottingham
Founding Director, Challenging Learning
"Such a huge benefit, to have a Bank team that know both of us, understand our lives and support us thoroughly. The work of the team is totally efficient and unobtrusive, providing instant and approachable response to all of our needs.
Always thinking ahead, helping us plan and deliver different responses to the varied demands of our busy lives, conversations are always beneficial and provide a great sense of security and knowledge. A great combination of genuine relationships, backed by the strength of a super efficient and reliable banking group."
