As a responsible business, Aegon advocates for issues and initiatives that we think will benefit our customers, employees, wider society and our businesses.
Our approach to advocacy
Aegon's advocacy efforts include proposals regarding financial stability, pensions and retirement law reforms, sustainability, cyber security and data privacy.
Registrations, contributions and memberships
Aegon is headquartered in the Netherlands. We are registered in the EU Transparency Register and adhere to the EU code of conduct for organizations engaged in EU policymaking and implementation. Aegon's EU transparency register number is 627192514539-08.
In the United States, our spending on advocacy is also a matter of public record. We report all our expenditures and contributions — including a record of what issues we have lobbied on — to the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Furthermore, Aegon has established a Political Action Committee (PAC), which pools voluntary contributions from employees to support candidates for elected legislative office. Officers from Transamerica, Aegon's US subsidiary, form the PAC Board, which approves contributions from the PAC fund. These are made to candidates — regardless of political party affiliation — who are in a position to support legislative policy impacting Aegon's business. As a company we do not make donations to the PAC, political parties, governments or candidates for public office.
