Aegon is one of the world's leading providers of life insurance, pensions and asset management. We started life as Scottish Equitable in 1831 and, over the years, we’ve evolved our brand. We’ve combined our strong UK heritage with Aegon’s global strength, while staying committed to our original purpose; to help people take responsibility for their future and achieve a lifetime of financial security.

Better together

On 1 January 2017, Cofunds, a UK based investment administration service, became part of Aegon. By combining the scale and experience of Cofunds, with the innovation, financial strength and product knowhow of Aegon, we aim to provide even better support for customers, advisers and employers.
