AEGON Delivers Strong Earnings Growth And Increased Value Of New Business

In the Netherlands, Aegon is on track with reorganizing its business to be more agile and better positioned to respond to changing conditions and opportunities in the Dutch market. The reorganization program, and other initiatives, will result in reducing the cost base for Aegon the Netherlands by EUR 100 million, compared to the cost base for 2010. The cost savings aim to offset pressure on underlying earnings from increased longevity provisioning and a declining life insurance back-book. Up to and including the third quarter, Aegon has implemented costs savings of EUR 80 million.

Aegon retained its place in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for 2012-2013, and regained its position in the European index after a one-year absence. This was due to a significant improvement in the company's overall sustainability rating. Aegon has made substantial progress in several key areas. In particular, the company has improved its approach to human resources, brand and customer relationship management. The introduction of a company-wide framework governing pay and remuneration, as well as the further progress of Aegon's talent management program also strengthened overall performance. In addition to the DJSI, Aegon is included in the FTSE4Good Index, and was recently admitted to Vigeo's Advanced Sustainability Performance Index for euro zone companies.
