Ex-platform boss to head Standard Life's new Dubai office

Former head of distribution at Standard Life Chris Devito will head the life company’s first office in Dubai, according to reports.

The Scotsman reported that Devito (pictured), now a regional chief execuitve, will head a branch of Standard Life International in Dubai.

Devito will oversee the Dubai development, which the firm said was part of its strategy to broaden its push into ‘high-growth, high value’ emerging markets.

This follows its move into Singapore last month, with plans to quadruple its Asian business over the next five years.
