"Chris and the team at the Oldham branch of Handelsbanken have handled all of our personal and business banking for some time, having switched from one of the well-known high street banks. They look after our various business banking facilities and our personal banking. They are flexible, personable, approachable and extremely switched on. We can recommend them in the highest possible terms."Corporate Banking customers
Customer testimonials about Oldham
"After several frustrating efforts with other banks, Chris and Scott at Handelsbanken were recommended to me to assist in the share purchase / buy out of an existing company. They were very helpful, professional and provided excellent advice and assistance in banking matters and with our additional needs. Chris made what was a difficult process as stress-free as possible.
Having completed the deal we have transferred our banking to Handelsbanken and they continue to offer help and support on every level.
We would thoroughly recommend Handelsbanken to any business."

"I was recommended to approach Handelsbanken, at a very difficult time in my life. The staff were very professional and made me feel relaxed and at ease, with what could of been a very stressful experience. They gave me sound advice for both my business and personal needs. Nicky, my Individual Banking Manager, was able to accommodate my, not straightforward, requirements and now has my full personal banking. They genuinely have a joined up approach with their corporate and personal knowledge to make logical and very timely decisions for business customers.
They were all very helpful, considerate and continue to take an interest."Julie German

“ We were looking to improve on past experiences of banking.
As a small business our banking needs are straightforward and we were looking for a high level of service and customer care and knowledge. This was essential as these criteria mirror our approach to our customers. Handelsbanken provide us with the service and customer care that we were looking for and two years on we look forward to continuing to bank with them long term.
In summary Handelsbanken provide for us what our old bank didn’t."

"Having moved from one of the so called big four banks I must admit to being very impressed with Handelsbanken.
Handelsbanken arranged to meet with me at a time of my choice so we could discuss what I required from a bank.
I then received a return visit to confirm all that details of the accounts and terms on offer which had been organised to meet my personal needs. The level of service offered to me has been second to none.
If like me, you are a bit of a technophobe there is no problem about that either. The Bank just talks to you like they did in the past. If however, you want electronic banking, then they can organise that too. This is how banking should be. I would recommend joining this bank to anyone."
Individual Banking customer
"I am an experienced property investor with over 15 years’ experience and have been working with Handelsbanken for the last six months. I have been, and still am a customer of other big UK high street banks. Given this knowledge and experience, I feel I am in a good position to judge when I am receiving the level of customer service I need, to successfully run and expand my business.
When setting business goals, objectives and strategy it is vital to assess the risks your business faces, so you are then able to mitigate or reduce these risks to a minimum and allow your business to flourish. I have no doubt in my mind that one of the most significant risks to any business is not having a bank that can provide a consistently excellent level of customer service. To be able to provide the level of customer service you need, your bank must:
· Have knowledge of your business and understand your business ambitions
· Have knowledge and experience of the broader financial world
· Deliver what is required to support your business within the necessary deadlines; and
· Be dynamic and react to change with innovative and cost effective solutions.
Scott and the team at Handelsbanken Oldham have delivered this excellent level of customer service in spades and assisted me to expand my business significantly in the last six months. I have found it hugely refreshing to work with a bank that wants to understand and support my business. I speak to the team on a weekly basis, either over the phone or by calling into the branch. Handelsbanken Oldham is an excellent combination of the right people and the right banking model, who have the ability and desire to assist me in developing my business.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Handelsbanken Oldham to anyone who has business ambition and is looking for the best financial backing available."Christian Lawton
