An introduction to abrdn
We’re here to help you plan, save and invest for your future.
Through the expertise, insight and innovation of our team, we aim to give you more confidence to reach your financial goals, and also help your money make an impact.
We’ve been helping people look after their financial futures for nearly 200 years. Our heritage goes back to 1825, when The Life Insurance Company of Scotland was founded in Edinburgh.
In 2018, we sold our life and pensions business to the Phoenix Group. We then sold the Standard Life brand to them in 2021. That gave us the opportunity to launch a new, unified brand for all of Standard Life Aberdeen’s global businesses – abrdn.
What we offer at abrdn
We help people throughout the UK plan for their financial futures with our financial planning and advice services, and digital investing products.
Our technology and tools help advisers and wealth managers in the UK create more opportunities for their clients and their businesses.
