Hotline: VCCP appointed to handle Standard Life account

VCCP has been appointed to handle the £7 million ad account for Standard Life after a pitch against undisclosed agencies. VCCP will initially work on the launch of a new product for the company later this year. Standard Life ended its 18-month relationship with Saatchi & Saatchi in August, soon after the agency had won the £15 million Axa business.
