Responsible investing: a tenet of our heritage and our future

Bas NieuweWeme, CEO

This last year has demanded much of our world. Amid the uncertainty at the onset of the pandemic, it was apparent that a greater movement was taking place-bringing a glimmer of hope during an exceptionally challenging time. As Covid-19 coursed across borders, the world adapted and humanity pulled together for the greater good. This was visible in the medical professionals and essential care workers selflessly putting their own health and lives at risk; and it was evident with the quick course of action taken by central banks across the globe to dampen the monetary repercussions of a global pandemic that caused supply chains to come to a stilted and unexpected halt.

The pandemic's disruption to the world's predictable cycles caused a collective reassessment in the monotony and normalcy of our daily life prior to the outbreak. Priorities shifted and more emphasis has been placed on the importance of environmental, social and corporate governance issues on society at large. One good thing to come from Covid-19 is to see responsible investing e•orts accelerated during the pandemic. As we enter a post-pandemic world, we are already seeing investors place greater importance upon it with a stronger focus on environmental and social impact.

While our daily life may look a little di•erent, our commitments remain the same: to deliver the highest- quality investment solutions to our clients; pursue competitive long-term results through active investment management; and provide our employees fulfilling careers, financial stability and a safe, inclusive and diverse workplace. Underpinning our ambitions is a strong commitment to expanding our ESG capabilities.

Responsible investing is embedded in our rich heritage at Aegon Asset Management. While others may claim to be pioneers, we actually were with our heritage dating back to the 1980s. But we're not focused on who did what first; to us, one of the most important mandates is held in the future and what's at stake. We believe the way forward with responsible investing is brighter. We are proud of our history, but we know the world does not stand still. To that e•ect, I can assure you neither will Aegon AM. We are committed to responsible investing and aspire to drive the industry forward by promoting best practices for the benefit of our clients, the industry and society at large.

We believe the way forward with responsible investing is brighter. We are proud of our history, but we know the world does not stand still. To that e'ect, I can assure you neither will Aegon AM.
