handelsbanken 150 jaar logo
This year Handelsbanken is celebrating its 150 years! Handelsbanken’s history dates back to the spring of 1871, when several prominent Swedish companies and entrepreneurs founded 'Stockholms Handelsbank'. The bank has since grown into an international listed bank with the highest average credit rating worldwide and a local branch network in six home markets.
