Ratings

Our objective is to maintain our operating units’ capital above the amount required for a very strong financial strength rating from the industry’s most respected independent rating services.

Why do ratings matter? 

Aegon is highly rated by the industry's most respected independent rating services. As a measure of our financial strength and performance, these ratings are a direct reflection of the care with which we manage our business.

Aegon's financial strength ratings provide comfort to clients and partners and support business growth. Our issuer credit ratings are an additional tool to help investors assess Aegon's credit quality and support the company's financial flexibility by allowing easier access to the debt and capital markets.

Ratings reflect the opinion of the individual rating services regarding Aegon's financial strength, operating performance and claims paying ability.
