Standard Life Investments is on track to acquire Newton’s £3.5bn wealth division in a deal worth up to £90m.

The Telegraph reports SLI adviser and investments managing director Richard Charnock is leading the talks following several rounds of bidding and has reportedly reached an exclusivity agreement.
