This page features Aegon’s statement on Financial Economic Crime, the Wolfsberg Group Financial Crime Questionnaire for Aegon N.V. and aims to support you with your Know Your Customer (KYC) and due diligence-related inquiries.
Aegon's position on Financial Economic Crime
At Aegon, we are committed to conducting business with the highest level of integrity, and strict compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and standards in each of the markets and jurisdictions in which we operate. As a global financial institution, Aegon is at risk of being used to launder proceeds of crime, to finance terrorism and/or to be involved in transactions related to sanctioned persons, entities and/or countries as well as trade controlled exports and proliferation financing. Aegon defines these as Financial Economic Crime (FEC) risks. Aegon implemented several policies on FEC to prevent its businesses from involvement in money-laundering and terrorist financing, fraud and/or bribery. Aegon's FEC policies include:
- Anti-Fraud Policy (covering internal fraud, intermediary fraud and external fraud)
- Anti-Money laundering & Terrorist financing Policy
- Sanctions Policy
- Bribery & corruption – via the Gift & Entertainment Policy and the Conflict of Interest Policy
