About Handelsbanken

Founded in Sweden in 1871, Handelsbanken has become one of the world’s strongest banks with over 800 branches in 20 countries worldwide. We offer local relationship banking with products and services tailored to the needs of our personal and business banking customers

Handelsbanken’s decentralised model is central to its success. Each branch operates as a small business, enabling it to make decisions locally and to provide a service that is truly bespoke. This different perspective works.

In 2015, Handelsbanken was rated top for customer satisfaction and loyalty for the seventh year running, in an independent survey of British banks’ personal and business customers
