Financial wellbeing

At Aegon, we believe getting more people to access financial advice will improve their financial wellbeing. And our role is to help intermediaries encourage clients to plan for their futures – whatever that may bring. Here you'll find our latest research, guidance and support helping you to identify new advice opportunities.

What does it mean?

‘Financial wellbeing’ refers to how people feel about the control they have over their financial future – and their relationship with money. That includes their ability to respond to financial unpredictability and unexpected expenses. 

People with healthy financial wellbeing can meet their long-term financial goals and make informed choices that allow them to enjoy a meaningful life – both now and in retirement.
