What are agency services?

Origo provides a range of online agency services. Origo is the Industry sponsored company which provides online standards and services to the UK life, pensions and investment sectors.

Standard Life is a supporter of these services, which allow you to register and administer agencies across a number of providers.

Online agency registration service

The service allows directly authorised advisers to complete an agency application. They only need to do this once, then the application can be issued to us and a number of other participating product providers to establish an agency relationship. This process allows you to sign up to the terms of business for us and other providers.
