The merger between Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life suffered a setback after its largest client pulled assets

The tie-up created a "material competitor", according to Scottish Widows chief executive Antonio Lorenzo, who said: "It is now appropriate to review our long-term asset management arrangements to ensure they remain up-to-date and that customers continue to receive good service and investment performance". Shore Capital reaffirmed a "hold" rating on shares of Standard Life Aberdeen PLC in a report on Tuesday, August 8th.

The fund management behemoth will lose revenue and take a £40m impairment charge as a result of losing its customer relationship with Scottish Widows' owner Lloyds Bank. This included long-term contracts for the management by Aberdeen of over £100bn of assets on behalf of Scottish Widows and Wealth.
