Handelsbanken has become an official partner of the Plymouth Law Society (PLS) – a move that sees the bank further extend its local relationship ethos within the legal community in the city.

In becoming PLS’s first Official Banking Partner, Handelsbanken has agreed a one-year exclusive arrangement. Recognised as Europe’s safest commercial bank¹, Handelsbanken’s customers are amongst the most satisfied in British banking². Its branding will be featured on the PLS website and regular e-newsletters, whilst having the opportunity to showcase its personal and corporate banking expertise at the society’s regular events throughout the year.

Commenting on the new partnership, Darren Edwards, Branch Manager at Handelsbanken in Plymouth said:

“We’re looking forward to bringing our unique bank to even more people across the legal community in Plymouth. Our approach offers something different. We’re a bank focused on building long-term relationships with our customers, not sales targets. We can offer a truly personal service; with a dedicated account manager each of our customers know, so they’ll always deal with someone who really understands them, their needs and ambitions. Key decisions are made here in the branch; and customers have access to experts, whether that’s for a mortgage or wealth planning, we have it all covered.”
