Scottish Widows has announced its post-Retail Distribution Review (RDR) charging model and the enhancement of its e-commerce channel.
The firm said new business can now be applied for on an RDR charging basis for both corporate pensions and the firm's' individual pension product, Retirement Account.
It added a range of practical approaches have been developed to allow both advised and non-advised top-ups to existing plans across individual pensions and investments products after the legislation change.
Adviser charging functionality will also be available on the majority of the group's annuity products. Additionally, a fully compliant factory gate priced investment bond has been designed.
Meanwhile, the group has invested in its e-commerce offering to support advisers by improving back office integration and servicing efficiency.
Scottish Widows head of distribution, Robert Kerr, said: "We have delivered a range of RDR compliant products and changes to existing products that we believe maximises the options available to advisers when agreeing charges with consumers that meet both their needs.
"The scale of the change we have introduced goes far beyond what is required to be RDR compliant.
"These additional changes highlight our continued commitment to the intermediary market and the opportunities that lie ahead."
