Aegon to outline growth opportunities at investor conference

New York, June 25, 2014

CEO Alex Wynaendts will today at Aegon's Analyst & Investor Conference outline Aegon's strong foundations for growth, how the company is successfully executing on its strategy and is on track to achieve its 2015 financial targets.

Mr. Wynaendts will highlight how Aegon's strong financial position and expense savings have created room to invest in the business. He will also explain the ways in which investing in new technology is helping Aegon to meet its objective of being more customer centric, and how this is enabling Aegon to benefit from growth opportunities in both established and new markets.

At the conference, Mr. Wynaendts will be joined by members of Aegon's Management Board and U.S. operations:

Mark Mullin, CEO of Aegon Americas, will describe progress achieved by Aegon's business units in the Americas, and highlight strategic actions taken in Aegon's largest market, the United States. This includes the merger of two of its business units – Individual Savings & Retirement and Employer Solutions & Pensions – into a new Investments & Retirement unit. This new business unit will improve Aegon's capability to serve its customer needs and accelerate growth.

In addition, the leadership teams of each of the individual business units in the US will explain why their focus on customer needs, together with Aegon's innovative approach to products and distribution, are enabling the company to capture profitable growth.

Darryl Button, CFO, will provide further insight about Aegon's capital management policy, unveiled at last year's Analyst & Investor Conference, and will address Aegon's capital position under Solvency II.

Tom Grondin, CRO, will outline how Aegon's sound risk management policies support the operational and financial performance of the company.
