Dividend Policy

After investments in new business to generate organic growth, capital generation in Aegon's operating subsidiaries is available for distribution to the holding company, while maintaining a capital and liquidity position in the operating subsidiaries in line with Aegon's capital management and liquidity risk policies.

Aegon uses cash flows from the operating subsidiaries to pay for holding expenses, including funding costs. The remaining cash flow is available to execute Aegon's strategy and to fund dividends on its shares, subject to maintaining the holding company targeted capital.

Depending on circumstances, future prospects and other considerations, Aegon’s Executive Board may elect to deviate from this target. Aegon’s Executive Board will also take capital position, financial flexibility, leverage ratios and strategic considerations into account when declaring or proposing dividends on common shares.

Under normal circumstances, Aegon would expect to declare an interim dividend when announcing Aegon’s second quarter results and to propose a final dividend at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders for approval.

Dividends would normally be paid in cash or stock at the election of the shareholder. The relative value of cash and stock dividends may vary. Stock dividends paid may, subject to capital management and other considerations, be repurchased in order to limit dilution.

When determining whether to declare or propose a dividend, Aegon’s Executive Board has to balance prudence versus offering an attractive return to shareholders, for example in adverse economic and/or financial market conditions. Also, Aegon's operating subsidiaries are subject to local insurance regulations which could restrict dividends to be paid to the holding company.

There is no requirement or assurance that Aegon will declare and pay any dividends.
