Brexit – how will it affect you?

The UK left the EU on 31 December 2020. After this date, Handelsbanken in Sweden is no longer able to offer certain new products and services to customers in the UK. One exception to this is corporate credits, which we will continue to be able to offer our corporate customers.

The ambition is to offer you as a customer personal service and sound advisory services. Our aim is to continue to be able to offer the best possible service, wherever you are based.

Are you a customer in Sweden but resident in the UK?

Are you a customer of Svenska Handelsbanken AB with residency in the UK? In that case, the products and services we offer will be affected. 

Services involving payments, cash accounts or access to debit cards will remain unchanged, as well as credits granted to corporate customers. However, credits granted to private individuals will be limited. Existing mortgage loans will not be affected, but other credits will not be renewed or extended. No new credits will be granted. 

Investment products such as security accounts and mutual funds will require special treatment. Generally, Svenska Handelsbanken AB will not be able to offer any investment products to customers resident in the UK. 

We will contact you if we believe that we will no longer be able to offer you banking services as a result of prevailing legislation in the UK. 

Do you have permanent residency in the UK?

Are you settled in the UK as a permanent resident? In this case, we recommend that you contact Handelsbanken plc, a subsidiary of Svenska Handelsbanken AB, which can offer banking services directly in the UK. For more information, please visit Handelsbanken plc's website. 

The services that Handelsbanken plc offers its customers in the UK will not be affected by Brexit.

Are you a customer in the UK, but resident in Sweden/the EEA?
