Exceptional Private Banking

We are an award-winning Private Bank providing banking expertise to personal and professional clients. As a valued client, your dedicated Private Banker will provide a service tailored to meet your needs and those of your family and your business.

We focus purely on providing a superior banking experience, meaning we have no other priorities or distractions, and work seamlessly with your other advisers.

Our commitment to our clients and to service excellence is why we were named “Private Bank of the Year (UK)” at the prestigious Spears Wealth Management awards in November 2018.

Tailored Banking

We tailor our services according to each client's individual requirements. We provide day-to-day banking, including current accounts and charge cards in a number of currencies, as well as lending facilities and deposit accounts. All our lending decisions are made personally by our experienced team, to enable swift decision-making regardless of complexity. We also provide a convenient digital banking service.

All borrowing is subject to status and is available to persons of 18 or over. Security might be required for borrowing in the form of a charge or standard security over land, or other forms of security over your investments or other assets. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER DEBT SECURED ON IT.

Banking Director

Duncan has been in Banking since 1995, working across multiple roles and institutions, he specialised in Private Banking 15 years ago, supporting clients of Bank of Scotland Private and the wider Lloyds Banking Group.    

More recently his focus has been in helping  both High Net Worth and Corporate clients with their complex borrowing requirements. This was achieved during a period of economic uncertainty and an ever-changing regulatory environment.  Duncan joined Hampden & Co in 2018, and continues to specialise in working with clients who have unusual or complex borrowing needs.


In his spare time he loves training for, and competing in, cycling time trials around the country, walking in the Lake District and growing veg in his (surprisingly successful) garden.
