Private Banking - Exceptional service with a personal touch

For those who value an attentive, discreet service as well as banking expertise, Hampden & Co provides it all. As a respected client, you have a dedicated Private Banker who will meet you at your convenience and who will provide a service tailored according to your needs, and those of your family and your business. We focus purely on providing a superior banking experience and work collaboratively with your other advisers to make your life as effortless as we can. We were delighted that these services resulted in us being named “Private Bank of the Year (UK)” at the prestigious Spears Wealth Management awards in November 2018. We predominantly support clients who are resident in the UK.

Professional & Experienced

Our Private Bankers have been recruited on the basis of their commitment to providing clients with a long-term, valued relationship. They are all highly experienced, and use this experience to create a banking service that is unique for each individual client. To help ensure a complete focus on providing exceptional service none of our bankers have any sales incentives.
