In March 2004 Standard Life announced that they were going to undertake a strategic review and consider demutualising. Within weeks we were appointed - one of the first advisers to be appointed.
The Standard Life demutualisation was one of the most complex with 5.2 million members and customers managed from four overseas offices.
Standard Life was listed in July 2006. The IPO raised £1.35 billion from customers and over 92% of members received their free shares or cash election at the time of flotation.
We were seconded full time to Standard Life for 18 months to manage the logistics workstream which included IT and systems development, printing & mailing, call centre & enquiry unit, data clean up, response handling, vote handling, receiving bank & registrar and sharedealing.
