en glad man och andra personer i bakgrunden

"Commercial Property Partners LLP (CPP) approached Handelsbanken in 2013 to support the business with its banking requirements. CPP was a newly formed company at the time and the assistance the bank provided was first rate and 3 years on this support has never wavered, only getting better year on year. The personal nature and local feel of the bank is fantastic and makes it unique within the banking sector." 

Roger Haworth, Sheffield
Partner CPP

"I joined Finnegan’s in 2008 and at that time Handelsbanken had fairly recently become the main funder for the business. During what has been an extremely challenging period for the construction industry I have enjoyed a very close relationship with the bank and in particular with our Corporate Manager. It is reassuring to know that you can maintain an honest open dialogue with your bank and be confident that they will adopt a sensible whilst pragmatic approach to your banking requirements."

John Diggins
Finance Director J F Finnegan Ltd

"It is a refreshing change to find a bank that really listens, and Handelsbanken have been listening to us since 2012. Local relationship managers make it their business to know each individual clients requirements with the intention of helping the business develop. There is always someone on the end of the phone to talk to, and to assist if a temporary change in requirements is needed. Handelsbanken take it all in their stride. No request goes ignored and as a bank, we find the one to one relationship invaluable."

"I want a person I know to speak to. I want a creative and flexible banker and most of all I want mutual trust. 

Handelsbanken provides me with all of the above which together with a great internet platform enables me to build my business and manage my affairs,

My relationship with Handelsbanken reminds me of when I started in business 50 years ago. I deal with people who know me personally, understand my business, take a call personally and not through a call center and even invite you to come for a Christmas drink! Personal banking at its best."

Derek Mapp, Sheffield
Corporate Business customer

"Across our diverse group of property businesses’ we have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Handelsbanken, over several years. Against a particularly hostile business environment over the last few years Handelsbanken has been very supportive allowing us to pursue new opportunities and expand. That support continues to bear fruit as we enter a more optimistic climate and I fully expect our relationship to continue to prosper and grow."

Dale Fixter
Group Managing Director
City Estates Group

"Throughout our six year relationship, Handelsbanken has impressed us with its levels of service, competitiveness and sensible attitude to risk. As well as knowing its customers, the bank’s employees understand its core beliefs and are consistent in the application of those beliefs to the proposals they consider. As a customer I appreciate this because it means I know where I stand - to sum up, it is good old fashioned banking."

Chris Phoenix
Group Finance Director
Tawnywood Ltd Group of Companies

"We have worked with Handelsbanken’s Sheffield St. Paul's branch on the refinancing of two properties within our investment portfolio, a drawdown for a further development within one of those properties and a development facility for a retail scheme. 

Handelsbanken have always proven highly efficient and customer focused. They are a pleasure to deal with and have been clear from the outset what they could offer us and deliver and have done so every time. We have already recommended them to several of our contacts and wouldn’t hesitate to do so unreservedly to anyone else."

Mark Twelves
Managing Director
Litton Property Group 

"I have now been a commercial customer of Handelsbanken for over 10 years. Throughout this period I have received a high standard of advice on product availability from managers and for our day to day banking from the excellent support staff. These are qualities which was once the hallmark of High Street banks, but which sadly, from my experiences, have largely disappeared. The Bank’s policy of personal service and  regard for banking security engenders great confidence. I have no hesitation in recommending Handelsbanken for your commercial banking requirements."
