We at Aegon UK recognise the upgrade of the Cofunds retail book in mid-2018 resulted in service and operational issues for advisers and our customers and our customer complaints for this period reflect their dis-satisfaction at the service. We’re fully committed and focused on resolving these problems and we have placed a huge emphasis on restoring service levels for our Aegon Platform Retail customers following the migration of former Cofunds users in May. Between June and December significant strides were made, with people from across our businesses coming together to address the service issues. We’re pleased that by the end of the year, core operational services had returned to target levels. We recognise this was a particularly challenging time for many and we’re thankful for everyone’s patience, support and efforts.
