Established in 2010, Blue Square Re acts as an internal reinsurer for the Aegon Group. It was formed by and for Aegon with the goal of harnessing and better reflecting Aegon's risk tolerance and appetite for underwriting risk.
Blue Square Re's strategy is to accept risk from other parts of the Aegon Group, thus enabling greater retention of risk or to allow the pooling of risk before it is ceded.
The Aegon Group believes that by using Blue Square Re it can benefit from economies of scale, and it can capitalize on the calculated and transparent management of risk that evolves from such a set up.
