Lloyds to pay £140m to settle with Standard Life Aberdeen

Lloyds Bank is to pay Standard Life Aberdeen (SLA) around £140m in a settlement intended to end their long-running dispute over an asset management contract.

The two firms have been in contention over the future of a £100bn asset management mandate that SLA looked after for Lloyds for the past 18 months, after Lloyds terminated the contract.

However, a tribunal held in March ruled that Lloyds was not within its entitlement to end the contract.

As part of the agreement, SLA would retain control of £30bn of assets for three years and a receive a cash payment of £140m – less than originally anticipated – Sky News Reported.

Despite the news, insiders have cautioned that an agreement had yet to be formally reached, adding that it remained subject to change.

A further review of the stewardship of the funds will take place in 2022.
