Responsible Investment

Profitable and sustainable growth is important to us, but so is helping to make a brighter future for our clients, communities, society and the environment we work in.

Responsible Investment at Aegon Asset Management

Aegon Asset Management believes in active, responsible and engaged investment. At Aegon Asset Management, we believe Responsible Investment helps to pinpoint risk, and may improve returns over the longer term. For us, Responsible Investment is about making sure we take environmental, social and governance factors into account when we invest. It's also about targeting some of our investments in areas we know will bring definite social or environmental benefits, as well as financial returns.

Responsible investing in 2015, see our report

At Aegon Asset Management, Responsible Investment is an integral element of our approach to long-term investing. In 2015, the management board of Aegon Asset Management included Responsible Investment among its key strategic objectives for 2020.

More than ever before, we are seeing that our key stakeholders – our clients, employees, and regulators – are demanding an increasing focus of our investment management expertise on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
