Part VII Transfer Scheme
Kleinwort Benson Bank Limited has agreed to transfer the entirety of its business (KBBL) to SG Kleinwort Hambros Bank Limited (Kleinwort Hambros). We have written to all clients individually, outlining the next steps and frequently asked questions. We expect all clients to have received their letters and emails no later than 6 September 2017.
What does this mean for clients?
We do not anticipate any immediate impact on how your account(s) operate. Your interaction with your private banker will continue as before. You will still be able to access your account to make and receive payments and the services provided to you currently by KBBL will continue after the transfer. Your account number(s) will remain the same and all automated payments currently set up on those accounts will continue as before.
If you wish to contact us, you may do so by contacting your designated private banker or our dedicated team at the address and/or phone numbers set out below:
UK clients: please call us on 0800 085 7138.
Clients calling from overseas: please call us on +44 203 207 7045.
The lines will be open from 09:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
