Changing the perception of aging in partnership with World Press Photo

Since 1955 the World Press Photo Contest has recognized professional photographers for the best pictures – presented as singles or stories in eight categories – contributing to the past year of visual journalism.

At Aegon, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Through the stories of triumph and the moments of struggle, we've seen a lot in our 175 year history. Our customers are the protagonists of life's greatest story, their own, and our role as a financial services provider is to help them continue doing what they do best: live, learn and grow.

John Adams Institute

Francis Fukuyama (March 2019)

The John Adams Institute, in collaboration with De Balie, hosted the renowned political scientist Francis Fukuyama to discuss his new book Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment.

The United States is Aegon's largest market, served by its popular brand Transamerica. This strong connection made The John Adams Institute – an independent podium for American culture in the Netherlands – an obvious choice.

The John Adams institute invites the best and the brightest from a multitude of disciplines – novelists, politicians, historians, scientists, screenwriters, poets, photographers and tech wizards – to the Netherlands to talk about their work, their thoughts, their insights.

As a main sponsor of the John Adams Institute for almost 30 years, our diverse mix of employees and business partners are able to benefit and learn from these inspiring and education events.

With immigration, diversity, and national identity being major topics of debate in the Netherlands, it is all the more valuable that the John Adams Institute bring American perspectives to the Dutch public and Aegon employees.
