Combining traditional values with a modern approach

C. Hoare & Co. is the only family owned survivor of the private deposit banks which were established in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, we combine our traditional values with a modern approach to banking and take pride in delivering an outstanding service tailored to our customers' needs.

Our aim is to pursue excellence over the long-term without regard to short-term gain. We do not force cross-sales or push products but instead focus on customer needs.
We have a long history of philanthropy and are innovators in helping customers to achieve their philanthropic goals.
Our people come from a diverse range of backgrounds, sharing a passion for delivering exemplary customer service and demonstrating the values of the bank.
The bank is both well capitalised and profitable. The Partners, who are all direct descendants of the founder, take pride in the continuing success of the bank.
The bank has a long and interesting history. Founded in 1672 by Richard Hoare at the sign of the Golden Bottle in Cheapside.
Our customers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and have different requirements. We focus on building long-term relationships with them.
We are delighted to welcome prospective customers to the bank, particularly when they are recommended by existing customers. A prospective customer must share our values and have the capacity and intention to do business with us.
We have been recognised and rewarded for our achievements both in Private Banking and Wealth Management and for innovation in our Master Charitable Trust.
We publish a variety of articles and information, including quarterly reviews and economic views and videos.
Fraudsters have turned their efforts away from banks and are increasingly targeting the public to accomplish financial gain.
