Aegon to appoint new independent auditor

Aegon's Supervisory Board will propose to appoint PwC as the company's independent auditor for the Annual Accounts 2014 through 2016, during the upcoming Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on May 15, 2013.

This recommendation is the result of a competitive tender process that Aegon conducted, consistent with its sound corporate governance principles.

The Supervisory Board will also propose to reappoint the company's current auditor, Ernst & Young, for the financial year 2013. Aegon appreciates the excellent service Ernst & Young has provided and expresses its gratitude for the firm's contributions.
