CEO Alex Wynaendts will highlight Aegon's progress in delivering on its strategic
priorities during the company's annual investor day in New York, December 5, 2012
beginning at 8:45 am EST/14:45 CET. Aegon Americas CEO Mark Mullin will detail actions
underway in Aegon's largest market, the US, to capture opportunities in the life
insurance, investments and retirement markets while delivering sustainable, profitable
growth, consistent with Aegon's strict risk-return requirements.
The main focus of the conference will be the progress of Aegon's three strategic
business units in the United States; Life & Protection, Individual Savings & Retirement
and Employer Solutions & Pensions. Aegon's operations in the US - which now all operate
under the Transamerica brand - are pursuing growth by focusing on the core markets of life
and supplemental health insurance, pensions and at-retirement solutions. The leadership
teams of each unit will highlight the significant opportunities they have identified and
the steps they are taking to capture further growth through product innovation, expanding
distribution and differentiated customer service. A key element of Aegon's strategy is to
get closer to its customers by utilizing technology and investing in innovative
capabilities to address customer needs at every stage of the life cycle.
Mr. Wynaendts, Mr. Mullin and the senior management from Aegon's three U.S. business
units will host a series of small group meetings, providing analysts and investors the
opportunity to address specific topics relative to the company's product lines,
operations, and market ambitions.
The conference presentations will be available on Aegon's corporate website at
8:30 am EST/14:30 CET at aegon.com. The presentations will be webcast live also
on the website beginning at 8:45 am EST/14:45 CET.
