The branch is central
In Handelsbanken, the local branch office is responsible for all the Bank’s business conducted in its area. This decentralised way of working gives us the chance to really know our customers and the community. It also makes us a central part of each community we operate in, and gives us the opportunity to contribute in various ways to those communities.
Respect for human rights is essential to long-term value creation for us at Handelsbanken. We support and respect the protection of human rights in all of our operations. Examples of conventions and principles which are relevant to us are the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. As part of this, we have chosen to integrate a number of the sustainable development goals into our operations.
A wide branch network
In our six home markets of Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK we have extensive branch networks. In addition, we are present in other markets to support customers from our home markets.
