 Tiller, who has been with Standard Life for over 20 years, is taking on the new role having previously worked in the Standard Life Investments and Wealth departments.

Richard Charnock, managing director, adviser and investments at Standard Life said: “As we settle into the new post-RDR world, one of our key strategic priorities is the growth and success of our platform business. We have created this new role to ensure cohesion between all parts of the business and the adviser community to enable us to provide the best end-to-end platform for investment advice.

“Our role is to support advisers in the establishment, development and maintenance of a sustainable and profitable business – we believe our platforms can help support and realise their potential.”

Tiller will draw upon his experience as a platform user in his new role. Of his new appointment he said: “Standard Life has taken a leading position in addressing the large scale regulatory change driven by RDR. There is much more to come and we are determined that the advisers we support will grow and thrive as the market evolves.”

“We cannot lose sight of the core purpose of our platform, which is to build successful adviser businesses by enabling them to deliver excellent client outcomes. This means enabling advisers to deliver suitable investment advice in an efficient, scalable and well-governed manner.”
