Standard Life launches AGM website

Standard Life has today launched its AGM website which includes the annual report 2006, corporate responsibility report and remuneration report.

The website has been launched ahead of the life office’s AGM which is scheduled for May 29.

The remuneration report shows that Group chief executive Sandy Crombie received a salary of £1.6m in 2006 while Standard Life Assurance chief executive Trevor Matthews was paid £1.3m.
