Aegon today

Headquartered in The Hague, Aegon is one of the world's leading financial services organizations, providing life insurance, pensions and asset management. Our history dates back to the mid-1800s, when two civil servants helped provide funds for people to bury their loved ones with dignity. More than 170 years on, our customers remain at the heart of everything we do.


We serve almost 30 million customers worldwide, mainly through our primary brands, Aegon and Transamerica.

In 2015, almost 15% of our sales were made direct to customers.


We have more than €700 billion in assets, which will be used to pay our customers' pensions as well as life insurance and other health benefits. 


We employ over 31,500 people across the world. Many more depend on us for their livelihoods through contracted service provision, such as suppliers and support staff.



Stronger going forward

"People need simple solutions and a trustworthy source of advice, and that is what we can provide for them."
