Standard Life

Our pensions and savings business, Standard Life, continues to build on nearly two centuries of success. We remain focused on achieving our ambition to be our customers’ first choice for their life savings. Our business is primarily based in the UK, with operations in Ireland and Germany.

For almost 200 years, our aim has been to meet the changing needs of people looking to save for their future and today we have around 4.5 million customers. We enjoy a leading position in the UK pensions and savings industry as a result of our investment in distribution, product and service innovation. The UK remains one of our core markets – alongside Ireland and Germany – and this is reflected in our long-term strategy.

Our award-winning platform businesses, Wrap and Elevate, support a large number of financial advisers in the UK. Each platform helps advisers provide high-quality financial planning services to their clients in different, but complementary, ways.
