Governance, in short, is the way in which a business is governed and to what purpose.

Aegon's governance structure is a system of rules, practices and processes by which we direct and control decision-making at Aegon. This identifies who has accountability and who makes decisions. It ensures that management has the appropriate decision-making processes and controls in place, so that the interests of all our stakeholders are balanced.
