Update on the European Union (EU) referendum result

The people of the UK have now voted in favour of leaving the EU and we fully respect this decision. We understand that in the coming period the UK Government will begin negotiations with the rest of the EU over the terms of the UK’s withdrawal. We expect that process to take at least two years.

Standard Life has a strong track record of successfully adapting to changing markets and regulation, and the evolving world around us. Consequently, we will have the required measures in place to help ensure we can continue to support our customers and clients and our other stakeholders across our group as the negotiations develop. As a business we already operate successfully across many borders in the EU and elsewhere in the world.

We want to provide continuity and peace of mind throughout the process of negotiation; we will follow developments closely as the new arrangements are agreed and where appropriate, we will contribute to the process. We will keep all our stakeholder groups regularly updated on progress as appropriate.

We have more information on our UK customer site on what the EU referendum result could mean for your investments.
