Hampden & Co is an independent private bank, established 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. From its offices in Edinburgh and London, the bank aims to build lasting relationships founded on the basic principles of honesty, integrity and fairness, and cares for the individual, their family and their business banking.

The bank concentrates on the provision of banking facilities and is happy to work with its clients’ own wealth management advisers so as to ensure a holistic approach to their financial affairs. Providing a discreet, high-quality, personal service that combines regular face-to-face meetings with modern technology, the bank relies on its ability to form and nurture enduring relationships with its clients. Mutual respect, understanding and accessibility are essential, as is the ability to respond promptly to the needs of its clients.

The Hampden & Co business is based on a traditional and conservative banking model. In particular, the bank does not set sales targets for its bankers in order to ensure that the interests of its clients are never compromised.

All clients of the bank have a dedicated Private Banker, who is responsible for all of their banking requirements and who is supported by an experienced team to whom clients have direct lines of communication. The bank does not set rigid criteria for the acceptance of new clients but ask that prospective clients understand that their business model necessitates that all relationships are mutually beneficial, if not at the outset, then within a reasonable period.
