Aegon in Japan

March 21, 2011

Aegon is active in Japan. We are an employer and a provider of pension products, and are now contributing to the disaster relief operation in place since the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011.

To assist all those affected by the recent disaster, Aegon has launched a global appeal among our 27,500 employees. The company has committed to matching all contributions collected through the appeal.

The proceeds of this combined effort will be given to the Japanese Red Cross. The Japanese Red Cross has mobilized more than 110 disaster response teams in the areas affected by the disaster, providing medical assistance, distributing relief items and providing psychological support.

Aegon has 180 employees in Japan, working for us in three businesses: Aegon Sony Life Insurance Company, our joint venture with Sony Life; Transamerica Re; and Aegon Direct Marketing Services.
