We value the relationships developed with our clients. It is a privilege to earn their loyalty and trust. Please read more about being a Ledyard client:
"Years ago, we chose Ledyard Financial Advisors for their expertise in financial planning, investments and tax management. Grounded in knowledge, enthusiasm and a glowing spirit, they’ve created a one-of-a-kind sub-community in which we place our full trust and appreciation. Walking into the Ledyard building feels like we’re seeing old friends – and we are! We are more grateful than ever as we get older to have Ledyard in our corner. We sleep well at night knowing that we will be well taken care of by an incredible team of financial professionals. Ledyard refers to this feeling in their tagline, 'Plan Well. Live Well.' We call it 'Peace of Mind."

"We are extremely proud to be a part of the Ledyard Bank family; a local bank that took interest in a local company. From day one it was clear that this was a partnership between ARC Mechanical and Ledyard. We discussed our goals and they wanted to be a part of helping make those goals possible. Ledyard Bank’s commitment to community and growing local businesses fits the values we hold as a company."
Jody Perkins & Andy Courchesne
Co-Owners, ARC Mechanical
"Ledyard impressed us from the very beginning and consistently wows us with above and beyond service! The personal attention given to our financial needs exceeds any we have experienced with other banks. Katie Blake and her team make it a point to treat us like gold. For example, on a recent trip overseas we left home with the financial peace of mind you only get when you have a team like Ledyard’s proactively watching out for you whether you’re in town or traveling abroad."
Mark & Marilyn Wendling
"In banking, as in healthcare, we are fortunate to have valuable local resources in our community. I never truly knew what a community bank was until I joined Ledyard’s Board of Directors. It has been satisfying to be part of an organization that cares, and to see firsthand how local employees, local knowledge and local commitment betters the lives of our neighbors. Beyond financial health, Ledyard invests in our region by promoting wellness through education, its annual walking challenge and its partnership with the American Heart Association. Plan well, Live well perfectly reflects the bank’s philosophy, capabilities, and their ongoing promise to our community."

"I joined Ledyard Bank’s Board of Directors nearly 20 years ago. It’s been incredibly fulfilling to serve on a local board that has real decision-making responsibilities resulting in powerful and positive impacts to the communities we serve. I also feel strongly about Ledyard’s core values. The leadership is outstanding and every employee cares deeply about the health and well-being of their clients and the region. “Plan well. Live well.” is more than just their tagline; it’s the philosophy that is honored in the many ways that they guide, educate and support their clients and community."

"Locally you know me, Lynn Solomon, as the host of the Kearsarge Chronicle. As a recent customer with Ledyard National Bank, I can honestly say that the experience has just been terrific! The entire process was so friendly and easy with the Ledyard team helping me every step of the way. Whenever I come into the New London branch, I am always greeted by name and given customer service that is beyond compare. Stop by their New London branch on County Road to see firsthand how the local Ledyard banking experience can make a difference for you. "
"As the owners of a specialty dental practice, we believe in providing our patients with both exceptional clinical care and customer service. We have come to value that same level of service from Ledyard Private Banking. From our business accounts and loans, to our home mortgages and beyond, their attention to detail and seamless customer service makes banking easy and allows us to focus on our patients and families."

"While managing our dermatology practice and patient responsibilities, we needed to find a bank that we could count on to oversee our finances while understanding our goals. Working with Ledyard’s Private Banking division over the last two years has been the perfect fit. We worked closely with Ledyard to have our mortgage, home equity line of credit, and our investments all in one place. With the first-class service and attention to detail we have grown to expect from Ledyard Private Banking, we have the freedom and peace of mind to focus on our patient care, knowing that they are taking care of us."

"Eight years ago when we decided to purchase our own business, we turned to Ledyard and their commercial banking team. Nearly a decade later, we still rely on Ledyard to help us navigate through the complex financial aspects of owning and operating our own business. We consider Ledyard Bank to be a partner in our success and look forward to continued prosperity in our future business ventures."

"Banking with Ledyard, a local bank who knows us and our business, is an advantage we appreciate. Since purchasing the Norwich Inn in 2006, we've relied on Ledyard's business banking team to lead us smoothly through the loan process and provide relevant guidance to help grow our business. Ledyard was there for us again in 2009, providing additional funding for our expansion. It's a great feeling to know that we have such a strong community bank believing in us and supporting our dreams."

"My wife, Chrysanthi, and I moved to Kendal in 2002, after living in Hanover for four decades. After years of working with a financial institution that was not based locally, we decided to move our trust account and utilize another firm - a local one that we could reach by walking down the street. So we thought of Ledyard Financial Advisors, and were pleasantly surprised to find familiar faces, outstanding service and the continuation of several long-standing relationships. We are delighted to be with trusted individuals who may be queried on a wide range of financial questions - for example, on the best way to help college-bound grandchildren: via custodial accounts or, as the Ledyard team informed us, by paying tuition bills directly to a college itself. All in all, we appreciate this personalized service that we discovered comfortably down the street."
Professor Emeritus Peter Bien
"As a family business based in the Upper Valley, having a banking partner with local roots is important to us. Ledyard Bank has been that partner since 1999. Through the years, we've relied on Ledyard for everything from cash management services to lending resources for our 20,000-square-foot facility expansion. The entire staff has always been prompt, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. With a partner like Ledyard, we know we'll continue to prosper and serve the needs of our customers well into the future."
President & CEO, Keene Medical Products, Inc.
"When we bought FloorCraft, we struggled with the idea of the business changing banks. Fortunately, Ledyard made the transition extremely easy and well worth the effort. Their expert advice and continued guidance reinforce that decision every day. Ledyard truly is an innovative bank with a hometown feel. Their amazing team consistently goes over and above for their clients. It is such a wonderful feeling to walk into our local bank and have everyone know our names! We feel that we are part of an invaluable partnership that will do nothing but grow for years to come."
Ken and Tobyn Olson
As a real estate developer, having a good banking relationship is key to the success our of projects, like The Commons at Silent Brook. Ledyard's approach has been a breath of fresh air: clear lending terms and fast decision-making. I especially appreciate the hassle-free way of managing our credit line on a monthly basis. Our bookkeeper was blown away by the online banking system. In an increasingly complex world, it is important to have simple banking solutions at your disposal. All around good service!"
Manager, Gros Ventre River Investment, LLC/Hanover Homes
"Six years ago when we moved our architectural firm to New London, we asked people locally for bank referrals. Ledyard was mentioned to us several times. When we were introduced to some of the staff and learned that their services fit our financial needs perfectly, we decided to move our accounts. Ledyard was instrumental in assisting us with both our personal and professional banking needs ranging from our house mortgage to the expansion of our firm. We value the relationship we've established with Ledyard and we are looking forward to continuing our affiliation with them in the years to come."
