Standard Life adviser head passes away

Mobley-Ian-Standard Life

Standard Life head of adviser engagement Ian Mobley has passed away following a cancer diagnosis last year.

He passed away on 21 August, aged 52.

During his eight years at Standard Life he held a number of positions working with advisers to help build their advice propositions with clients.

Colleagues and advisers knew him for his technical knowledge and understanding of the market, and his self-deprecating presentation style.

His career in pensions and investments spanned more than 25 years, starting as an adviser at Endsleigh Insurance, before joining Friends Provident and then ultimately Standard Life in 2008.

He also worked on secondment as head of business development with Threesixty in 2013.

Threesixty managing director Phil Young says: “Ian was much loved during his time at Threesixty. He was an honest and generous man, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of music.”

Standard Life head of adviser and wealth propositions David Tiller says: “Ian was a passionate advocate of financial advice, helping advisers deliver better results for countless clients through his training and insight.”
