Threesixty signs Standard Life custom wrap

Standard Life has become affiliated platform provider to support services provider Threesixty.

The partnership means Threesixty clients will be able to use a customised Standard Life wrap from today.

Threesixty says the wrap was developed to help support key services such as file checking. It says the deal will lead to significant added efficiencies at no extra cost to advisers.

Threesixty partner Phil Young says: “We are delighted to have worked closely with Standard Life to enhance their existing wrap solution. Threesixty clients benefit from a full range of constantly expanding services and we were keen to work with a strong provider in the platform space.

Standard Life Savings chief executive Geoff Towers says: “We believe this approach fits in very well with Standard Life’s approach to wrap where we have put the adviser at the heart of the development by providing a solution which has the potential to revolutionise the services on offer to customers.”
