Standard Life Company

Standard Life is a life assurance, pensions and long-terms savings company in the UK which is owned by Phoenix Group.

History: 1825–2010

Standard Life House Glasgow

The Standard Life Assurance Company was established in 1825 and reincorporated as a mutual assurance company in 1925. During the 19th century it opened offices in Canada, India, China and Uruguay.

In 2006 demutualisation took place and the company was floated on the London Stock Exchange. The company sold Standard Life Bank plc to Barclays plc in January 2010 and then acquired the remaining 75 per cent stake in Threesixty, a financial advisory support business, that it did not already own for an undisclosed sum in March 2010.

It sold its healthcare division to Discovery Holdings, a South African business, in May 2010 and went on to buy Focus Solutions Group, a financial software company, for £42m in December 2010. In 2018, Phoenix Group Holdings plc acquired Standard Life from Standard Life Aberdeen plc. In July 2021 Aberdeen Standard Life Group companies rebranded as ‘abrdn’.
