Swedish bank Handelsbanken has opened its second branch in Glasgow, in Finnieston.

St. Vincent Street in Glasgow was the chosen location for Handelsbanken's first Scottish branch around six years ago and since then the bank has opened a further nine branches across Scotland, as part of a UK network now numbering over 200 branches.

The new branch in Finnieston is headed by David Waddell, a highly experienced senior banker who has previously worked for RBS and Bank of Scotland. He is joined by Ian Gibson, ex Adam & Co. and Michael McCuaig, ex RBS and Bank of Scotland.

Handelsbanken's clientele ranges from corporates to SMEs to personal customers and its rapid growth in the UK is based on the bank's de-centralised approach, a focus on local decision making and the building of long term relationships with highly personalised levels of customer service.

In the EPSI Rating UK 2015, an independent survey of UK bank customers, Handelsbanken was ranked top for customer satisfaction and loyalty, for the seventh year running. And, in July 2015, Bloomberg Markets acclaimed Handelsbanken as one of the strongest banks in the world, for the fifth year running.
