At Aegon, we’ve been helping our customers achieve financial security since we started out as Scottish Equitable back in 1831. Over the years, we’ve evolved our brand by combining our proud heritage with Aegon’s global strength. As one of the world’s largest financial service organisations, we work with advisers, employers and individuals to offer long-term savings, investments, pension solutions and protection products.
As a long-term savings provider, we want to help our customers align their investments with a fair and sustainable future. This relates both to how we behave as a business and how we help our customers invest responsibly. Making a positive impact is a key pillar of our strategy – there is a real passion in our business for how we support our communities and how we take care of the environment. That's why our purpose - helping people achieve a lifetime of financial security - is at the heart of our strategy.
At Aegon, we’re committed to responsible investment – in fact, we’ve been managing ethical funds for over thirty years. And we’re firmly on the road to net zero across our default funds, aiming to achieve this by 2050, and halving emissions by 2030. In addition, Aegon’s global strategy supports the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), with targets outlined in our annual reports. We are a member of CDP Worldwide (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), signatory of the Paris Pledge for Action, and a founding signatory of the UNEP-FIs Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI). And Aegon NV has been included in the FTSE4Good Global Index since 2001.
