A word from the Branch Manager, Andy


“Welcome to our Watford branch of Handelsbanken, where we have been providing corporate, personal banking and wealth management services since 2011.

If you have not come across us before, the Handelsbanken business model is based on a number of key differentiators, such as our decentralised way of working and a long-term approach that is not target driven but more focused on investing time to get to know our customers, their needs and ambitions. 

We continue to make the majority of decisions at branch level with each customer having a dedicated account manager who you can still meet here in the branch or contact directly by phone or email. Our 'hands on' approach is complimented by secure online and mobile banking services. 

Whilst the nature of our business model means we have a focus on certain customer segments, please do get in touch with us and we shall be delighted to discuss your banking requirements.”   

What our customers say


"We have been a corporate customer of Watford Handelsbanken for a number of years and approached the bank to ascertain if they could provide a short term mortgage for us to buy another home whilst our current home was being marketed. Handelsbanken stepped up to the mark and were able to understand and accommodate our individual situation, working with us to get over the usual hurdles encountered when taking out a loan. Most importantly, we had a point of contact who always responded to emails or calls and made the whole process as painless as possible. We can only sum up by saying the service we received was exceptional and more akin to how banking was conducted in the past, personal high quality of service with a human touch."

Corporate Banking customer

“I recently transferred to Handelsbanken, who were proactive in assisting with funding my new build. In terms of my account manager, I have been delighted with her high level of service, knowledge and support throughout my build. Given the additional stresses that these projects tend to demand, she has always been available when funds have been required, and her hands on approach has allowed the process to run smoothly. Furthermore, she has made several site visits and worked well with my build team. I have enjoyed my experience with Handelsbanken, and look forward to a long relationship with the Bank”.
