Three-quarters of IFAs would NOT have recommended the demutualisation of Standard Life, if the resolution to hold a special general meeting had been approved by the Scottish Life office.
A poll of IFAonline readers - through the news site's "Polls" facility - reveals only 24% of the 239 IFAs who voted since July 3rd would have recommended their clients opt for demutualisation and the associated windfall.
Research conducted for Standard Life on behalf of George Street Research also indicates that 72% of IFAs would have voted "no" to the demutualisation of Standard Life.
