Hampden & Co

Hampden & Co opened its doors in June 2015, the first new private bank in the United Kingdom for 30 years. Operating from offices in Edinburgh and London, the bank was established and is run by a team of experienced bankers who understand that many successful and wealthy people still require a very personal banking service which is harder to find in the marketplace today. The bank is independent, with over 350 shareholders and no controlling party.

The bank concentrates on the provision of banking facilities to UK residents and is happy to work with its clients' own wealth management advisers so as to provide a holistic approach to their financial affairs. In addition to looking after clients' personal banking requirements, the bank is pleased to care for the banking of their family and their business interests.

The bank offers a discreet, high quality, personal service that combines regular face-to-face meetings with modern technology. The business relies on an ability to form and nurture enduring relationships with clients. Mutual respect, understanding and accessibility are essential, as is the ability to respond promptly to client requirements.

All clients of the bank have a dedicated private banker, who is supported by a team to whom clients also have direct access. The bank does not set sales targets for its private bankers, this ensuring its clients' interests are never compromised. Honesty, integrity and fairness are the basic principles on which the bank was founded.

The bank provides a range of banking facilities, including current and deposit accounts, Payment cards, Worldwide money transmission and Foreign Exchange, Internet banking, as well as Borrowing facilities including loans, mortgage and overdrafts.
