Handelsbanken is a universal bank that supplies services within the entire banking area, which includes traditional business transactions, investment banking and trading, as well as banking services for private persons. The bank's basic philosophy is to have a strong decentralized organization based on the offices' responsibility for individual customers.
Handelsbanken has a strong position in the Swedish market. During the past 15 years, universal banking operations have been developed in the other Nordic countries and in the UK.
They provide a range of services in Great Britain, and can provide all your day to day personal and business banking needs on a flexible, efficient and highly personalised basis. They can also provide Private Banking services to certain customers with the provision of all your private banking requirements.
"Over 600 branches worldwide"
Founded in Sweden in 1871, Handelsbanken is one of the largest Nordic banks with over 600 branches worldwide.
Handelsbanken specialises in providing highly personalised and competitive banking services to both Corporates and Individuals.
"Each branch is treated like a small company"
Unlike most other banks, the operations are not centralised and customers benefit from extremely short decision lines. Each branch is treated like a small company in its own right. This means that every branch has the power to make decisions at a local level enabling it to offer a banking service that is precisely tailored to the needs of the local market.
"An ongoing expansion plan in Great Britain"
The bank has been operating in Great Britain for over 30 years and has an ongoing expansion plan for the opening of new branches. In 2008 14 new branches were opened with more already planned for 2009, taking the total to over 60.
