How Aegon Core Portfolio Solutions work

Asset allocation

Morningstar uses an asset allocation model to create the optimal strategic asset mix for each target risk level, and then tactically refines it to account for shorter-term expectations. Generally riskier investments offer better long-term growth potential, but they are also more likely to fall in value.

Passively managed

With the aim of keeping costs low, the portfolios use passively managed investments. These investments aim to produce returns broadly in line with the markets they track by mirroring the same investments in the same proportions, as their benchmark.

We regularly check insured funds to see if they're meeting expectations. Find out more.

Monitoring and rebalancing

Because the portfolios are backed by our Funds Promise, we check them regularly to see if they're meeting expectations. That means:

  • We make asset allocation changes based on recommendations from Morningstar.
  • The portfolios are a collection of funds - we check to see whether these funds, as well as the overall portfolio, are performing as expected.
  • We will change the mix, remove or add funds if they're not.
