Aegon Asset Management (AAM)

Discover how AAM has embedded responsible investment in its business.

Aegon manages more than EUR 840 billion of assets (March 2017). Our customers fall into three main areas – General account, Insurance linked and Third-party business. Insurance-linked are those with whom we co-sell products through partnership with our insurance groups. Third-party business clients are non-affiliated clients.

General account clients are other Aegon companies throughout the world. Transamerica is the largest of these and is also referred to as affiliated. We have recently partnered with the Transamerica Asset Management Group on a consolidation project for the Transamerica Funds. Several fixed income funds are being taken over by AAM as a sub-advisor, improving investment performance and reducing fund expenses for the shareholders.

Brands

Aegon Asset Management also operates under a number of sub-brands around the world. These, such as Kames Capital in the UK, tend to offer investment management in a specialist market. To learn more about Aegon Asset Management's other brands, visit our brand overview.
