Boutique fund manager Liontrust's first large cap fund is among the range of 28 external funds which Standard Life will offer under its new pension proposition from March 15.
Standard is also introducing a new commission model for its pension range, with commission based on the term until the custo-mer's retirement date.
Fourteen external fund managers are being used by Standard, with access to funds such as Fidelity's special situations, Threadneedle's American select growth and JP Morgan Fleming's life global equity funds.
For policies with less than two years to retirement, no commission will be paid. Commission is 6 per cent where there are 25 years to retirement, with a 1.5 per cent clawback if the funds are moved within three years.
