Standard Life is in discussions with Barclays Capital about adding structured products to the platform, Money Marketing understands. If a deal goes ahead, the Barclays Capital funds will be the first structured products on the platform.
A Barclays Wealth spokeswoman says: “We are in discussions with a number of platforms about offering our products.”
Standard Life declined to comment.
Not all platforms offer access to structured products, with Cofunds and Fidelity FundsNetwork also yet to include them.
Skandia offers two funds it classes as structured products, the £405m Investec multi-asset protector fund and the £47m Skandia shield fund.
Transact, Nucleus and Ascentric offer structured products from various providers.
AISA Professional Chartered Financial Planners senior financial adviser Geordie Bulmer says: “It would make it easier for advisers to use structured products if they are available on platforms.”
