Aegon Grows Earnings And Sales In Q4; Proposes Increased Final Dividend

Following 'The Changing Face of Retirement' survey, which studied retirement readiness across Europe and the United States, Aegon has recently released a supplemental report on aging trends within Japan. The Japanese have traditionally been recognized for their high savings rates, however this trend has changed since the mid-1990s. Aegon's study has revealed that the decline in Japan's saving rates has been so stark that household savings behavior now lags behind other countries surveyed. Although individuals do acknowledge the importance of planning for retirement, only 2% feel they are saving enough. Aegon, with its partner Sony Life, provides annuity products in Japan to serve the increasing need for retirement solutions. During 2012, Aegon Sony Life substantially increased its sales as it expanded its distribution reach by adding new bank partners and further leveraged on Sony Life's network of over 4,000 professional agents.
