Standard Life is a Scottish life insurance, pensions and investments company listed on the London Stock Exchange. It was founded almost 200 years ago.
Its life insurance product is underwritten by LV= (Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society), the UK's largest friendly society, which wins a Fairer Finance ribbon in every product area in which it is rated.
As well as life insurance, Standard Life offers ISAs, pension products and investment accounts.
LV='s recent drop in claims drag down its good transparency performance to leave Standard Life in the middle of our life insurance table.
