We've always believed that the first step to building wealth is building relationships.

For over 200 years, we’ve been working with our clients to preserve and enhance their wealth. By getting to know you and your family, we’re perfectly placed to adapt as your needs change over time. This is just one of the reasons many of our clients have trusted us for generations.

The art of listening.

Done well, listening is not just a skill; it’s the key to getting to the heart of your current circumstances and future ambitions. It’s how we’re able to build bespoke teams around you to deliver a planning-led approach that will encompass our three core services of wealth planning, investment management and lending. In a continuous cycle of evaluation we listen, plan and deliver so that these services work together to achieve your goals, and we’re able to adapt as your needs change over time. It’s why our clients trust us to manage their wealth so they can focus on living their lives.

Local relationship banking 

We are a local relationship bank, built on satisfied customers, financial strength and traditional values. We aim to provide a personal and competitive banking service, giving customers sound advice, making sensible decisions and creating unique solutions to match their individual needs. Handelsbanken has a different perspective from many other banks. We are driven only by our customers, designing tailored solutions to suit their demands. Because we are not target driven, we can take a long-term view, investing time to get to know our customers, their needs and ambitions.

The branch is the bank 

Originally from Sweden, Handelsbanken now has over 800 branches in 20 countries. Over recent years, Handelsbanken has steadily made a name for itself among Yorkshire customers looking for a more personal, long-term relationship with their bank. Demand for Handelsbanken’s modern day take on traditional banking has helped the bank grow, so we now have over 200 branches serving communities across Britain. Handelsbanken’s decentralised model is core to its success, with each branch operating as a local business. Throughout the region, our customers benefit from only dealing with people they know – experienced banking managers who understand the local market, and from swift, clear decisions made within the branch.
