C. Hoare & Co. is the United Kingdom’ s oldest privately owned bank, founded in 1672. We have weathered many crises and we stand ready to support our customers through the COVID-19 pandemic. The bank is very much open for business. Our full range of services is operating as usual, with most staff working remotely while branches are closed. We have a number of measures in place to help our customers and their businesses through this difficult time and we continue to welcome new customers.
We remain small enough to offer our customers a highly personalised private banking service and are dedicated to building lasting relationships with everyone who banks with us. On becoming a customer of C. Hoare & Co., you will be assigned a relationship manager who will take time to look after you and your family.
