Annual management charges for the funds range between 0.95% and 1.55% depending on wrapper choice for the multi-manager range, between 0.70% and 1.30% for the market funds and between 0.70% and  1.30% for the in-house Standard Life range.

The committee will also oversee the provider's Quality and Choice guided architecture offering.

Standard Life head of investment proposition Iain Mcleod said the offerings would help advisers meet the requirements of the retail distribution review.

'Advisers told us they want to reduce the cost and risk associated with selecting and managing investments,' he said. 'They also want an easier process when choosing funds that match their clients' requirements and long term plans.'
