Interesting article in Wealth Manager today reporting that Standard Life has struck a deal with 12 fund groups (G12) to market them more heavily to advisers.

Wealth Manager understands that Standard Life already has the deal in place with the 12 groups, but is set to go public with the arrangement at the start of 2013.

Whilst not confirm, it is understood that the 12 Fund Groups (known internally as the G12), are as follows: Invesco Perpetual, BlackRock, Schroders, Henderson, Vanguard, JP Morgan, Jupiter, M&G, BNY Mellon, Threadneedle, Investec and Aberdeen Asset Management.

The deal means fund group representatives will speak at Standard adviser seminars, have managers give webcasts and views on IFA portal Adviserzone, and join in on calls between advisers and Standard account managers.
