C. Hoare & Co. employs around 400 people at our headquarters in Fleet Street and our branch in Lowndes Street, Knightsbridge. Our staff come from a diverse range of backgrounds and all share the values of the bank.
Founded in 1672 by Sir Richard Hoare, C. Hoare & Co. is still owned and led by 11th generation members of the Hoare family. They remain central to the business and manage the bank on an unlimited liability basis, which allows us to be independent, flexible and fair. The family’s values are at the core of the business and we continue to deal honestly and discreetly with our customers, staff and suppliers.
