A word from the Branch Manager, Brian


"From our Newcastle base, our ambition is quite simple – to be the best bank around. We serve the North East heartland with a passion for delivering unrivalled customer service. We invest time in getting to know our customers and contacts on a personal level which, in turn, helps us shape solutions tailored to individual needs.

Our team spans both corporate & personal banking, with dedicated account managers at the heart of the community. With a full service support team working alongside them we can move swiftly to help both businesses and individuals fulfil their own aspirations. 

And being at the heart of the community means we are keen to support local charities through events and sponsorship. It is important, to each and every one of us, to help make a positive impact.

If you’re looking for a local bank that specialises in building personal relationships, or simply would like to find out more, than please do give us a call."

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.”

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.”
