Located just outside Stansted in North Street, Bishop’s Stortford we are the local relationship bank for private and business customers located in Stansted and the surrounding area.
Founded in Sweden in 1871 we opened our Bishop’s Stortford Branch in October 2012.
“The branch is the bank”
Handelsbanken’s decentralised model is central to our success. Each branch operates as a small business, enabling us to make decisions locally and to provide a service that is truly bespoke.
We do not have internal sales targets, bonuses or product campaigns which could be seen to blur our focus on the true needs of our customers.
Our Branch has power to decide the structure and pricing of products, which directly benefits our customers through swift decision-making. We are committed to long-term customer relationships and consistent, prudent banking.
Like us our customers tend to be financially prudent, responsible and looking for a long term relationship with branch staff who are experienced, know their customers and the local area well.
