Code of conduct

Our business is founded on trust, respect, and integrity. These principles are at the heart of Aegon's Code of Conduct. This mandatory framework shapes the actions of everyone who works for Aegon.

Aegon's Code of Conduct embodies the company's values and helps ensure that all employees act ethically and responsibly.

It prescribes a mandatory set of conditions for how Aegon employees should conduct business, comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and exercise sound judgment in reaching ethical business decisions in the long-term interests of our stakeholders.

Who does it apply to?

Aegon's Code of Conduct applies to all directors, officers (regardless of the contractual basis of their employment) and employees of all Aegon companies around the world, including associate companies, joint ventures and other co-operative ventures.

Every Aegon employee has to certify that they have read and understood the Code of Conduct, and agree to abide by it. Employees are encouraged to follow an e-learning to help embed the principles of the Code in the way they work.

Aegon's Code of Conduct is available in the languages of the countries where we operate.
