Handelsbanken was formed in 1871 and is the oldest company on the Swedish stock exchange. Today, we are one of the world's strongest banks, with roots in local communities and trusting relationships.
We operate on timeless values of trust and respect, for customers and colleagues. We aim to build lifelong relationships with our customers and to grow through their recommendation. We trust our branch teams to take all the decisions that matter to their customers, and to engage locally in the ways they find best.
We are more than 12,000 employees working in our home markets, branches and representative offices. More than 40 per cent are employed outside Sweden. In 2020, 41 per cent of all managers were women.
