Oldest Family Firms In The South East

1672 – C. Hoare & Co.

Established in 1672 at the Sign of the Golden Bottle and owned continuously by the Hoare family for 12 generations, C. Hoare & Co. is the UK’s oldest privately owned bank. The partners today are stewards of a unique and evolving culture built on personal trust and outstanding customer service.

Underpinned by Hoare family values of honesty, empathy, excellence and social responsibility, personal relationships are the heart of the business. They enjoy working with individuals, families and businesses who share their values; they take time to understand exactly what is important to them and how best they can help them prosper. These high standards of care extend to the world around them: the partners donate up to 10% of the bank’s annual profits to charitable causes via the Golden Bottle Trust, while their Master Charitable Trust helps customers make the most of their own charitable giving.
