What our customers say


“I recently transferred my personal banking to Handelsbanken from another bank using the Automated Switch Service and found the process very easy. The team at Handelsbanken have been excellent in supporting me through the transfer process and have answered any queries I have had. Now that my accounts have been switched, I am very happy with the service I am receiving from the team at Handelsbanken Newcastle and would not hesitate in recommending them.”

Mr. T. C., Newcastle
Individual Banking customer

“I have been a customer of the branch since 2007 and they look after all of my Corporate and Individual banking requirements. I recently acquired a large plasma cutter for my engineering business for which Handelsbanken provided asset finance. The branch maintained regular dialogue with the supplier to ensure the paper trail was in order to ensure funds were released on delivery making the transaction extremely smooth and easy. I like talking to individuals within the Bank who can make decisions and they are always on the other end of the phone when I need them.”
