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 2016

Early in 2016, our Management Board identified Responsible Investment as one of its key 2020 strategic initiatives. While we are still defining the 'RI target operating model' that we want to achieve in 2020, this has already led to concrete new projects and resources: to determine how we can measure climate-related investment risk, to analyze the concept of 'long-termism', and to better understand the state of play in impact measurement.
