Standard Life Aberdeen (SLA) has today announced the appointment of Noel Butwell as chief executive officer of Standard Life Savings.
Mr Butwell’s responsibilities encompass Standard Life’s platforms, advice and savings businesses.

Assets under Administration across both total £57.6 billion and over 3,500 advisers trust the platforms to help them manage the wealth of over 425,000 clients.
Noel Butwell, who will report to Martin Gilbert, vice chairman of Standard Life Aberdeen, said: “I am delighted to have been appointed Chief Executive of Standard Life Savings. I have worked for SLA for 16 years and throughout this time my primary focus has been building enduring relationships with financial advisers as we work together to meet the needs of their clients.

The acquisition will increase 1825’s AuA to £5.8 billion.
