Strong showings for Standard Life's SIPP and wrap propositions helped boost net inflows for the group by 60% to £7.2bn for the nine months to 30 September.
Customers in Standard Life's individual SIPP proposition increased by 21% to 101,400 (31 December 2009: 83,900) while wrap customers rose 63% to 51,400 (31 December 2009: 31,600).
In total, long-term savings net inflows for the group more than doubled to £3.5bn (2009: £1.4bn) with growth of 63% to £1.0bn (2009: £0.6bn) in Q3.
Group assets under administration (AUA) were 13% higher at £192.4bn (31 December 2009: £170.1bn).
There was also a strong showing for Standard Life Investments (SLI) with third party assets under management (AUM) 21% higher at £69.1bn over the period.
SLI's third party net inflows were 48% ahead at £6.3bn (2009: £4.3bn) helped by demand for fixed interest and Global Absolute Return Strategies. Net inflows were 35% up at £1.6bn (2009: £1.2bn) in Q3.
The life company announced earlier in the year it was doubling its level of investment in 2010 to grow the business. This includes an Employee Wealth & Benefits Platform for the corporate market which is in the final stages of development, with the first client set to join in the coming months.
It is also preparing to roll-out new online propositions for both advisers and customers.
The group says: "In particular the UK remains an exciting place for Standard Life to do business, with the investment we are making in our market-leading products and propositions positioning us well to capitalise on the significant movement in corporate and retail assets that will arise from changes in the regulatory environment and customer behaviour.
"The prospects for Standard Life Investments remain strong, with a healthy pipeline in institutional business reflecting the continued demand for our fixed interest and GARS propositions."
