Strategic corporate development

Aegon AM is comprised of active global asset managers focusing on four asset classes: fixed income, real assets, equities and multi-asset and solutions, which are structured as four global investment platforms. By organising our investment teams globally, we harness our investment expertise and research across regional borders to help create an information advantage to aid us in delivering consistent long-term outperformance.

Within each investment platform, we offer a distinct product suite that cannot easily be replicated by our competitors and index managers and that meets industry leading standards and operating margins. For our existing traditional strategies, we aim to benefit from our responsible investing edge and scale advantages. For alternative strategies, we also strive to grow existing capabilities while increasing the number of distinct strategies that are not easily replicated by competitors or index managers.

Across markets, we believe in the investment benefits that come from responsible investing. By leveraging our well-resourced, dedicated responsible investing team, we aim to increase the number of sustainable and impact strat- egies to meet the increasing demand of our clients.

We continue to leverage our heritage managing insurance and pension assets. We remain committed to developing and customising innovative solutions for our affiliate distribution channels and the general account of our parent company. By leveraging our affiliate investment needs, we have access to seed capital and can offer third-party clients attractive co-investment opportunities
