At Standard Life we don’t stand still. We improve, challenge, learn and adapt to earn our place in the future. We were founded in 1825 and since then we’ve kept growing and innovating.
Our drive led us to become the largest life assurance company in Scotland by the 1950s. And in the 20th century we expanded from annuities and basic types of insurance into group pension schemes, savings and investments. We never stopped working hard to build a better future for our customers. By the 1990s we were Europe's biggest mutual company.
More recently, in 2017, Standard Life plc merged with Aberdeen Asset Management plc to become Standard Life Aberdeen plc. And in 2018, Standard Life Assurance Limited (SLAL), formerly part of the Standard Life Aberdeen Group, became part of the Phoenix Group.
We’re proud of our history and excited for the future. There’s a lot to look forward to.
We’re here to help our customers move forward in a way that matters and makes sense to them.
To succeed, we believe that values matter. That’s why trust, teamwork, transparency, and integrity are at the heart of our culture. And we always stay positive. Life might not be perfect but we‘ll always strive to help people make good choices when it comes to their life savings.
