Fund and investment choice

For intermediaries only

Flexibility is at the heart of our Aegon Retirement Choices (ARC) fund range. With around 4,500 investment options, it caters for savers with different investment needs – whether they’re building savings, approaching retirement or taking an income.

It offers choice when you need it and simplicity when you don’t, letting you build sophisticated portfolios or use quality off-the-shelf solutions.

There are plenty of reasons to invest in ARC:

The value of investments may go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than they invest.

Fund solutions

Our innovative fund solutions are designed to make pension investing easy by offering complete portfolios conveniently packaged in just one fund.

Investors gain access to a wide range of investments and an investment process designed by experts. We take care of the monitoring, rebalancing and asset selection. All you need to do is review your clients’ needs and risk appetites periodically to make sure their fund remains appropriate.

The range includes growth solutions that help clients potentially grow their savings while keeping risk at a level they're comfortable with. It also includes funds designed especially for retiring savers.

Wide range of investments

For those who want choice, we offer a diverse and flexible range that lets you build portfolios to help meet even bespoke savings needs.

The range includes:

  • Insured funds - SIPP only
  • Collectives
  • Equities
  • Investment trusts
  • Exchange-traded funds

Many of our investments can be used across product wrappers, be that in a SIPP, ISA or GIA account, so you can choose the right investments, in the right wrapper. See which fund types can be used in each wrapper.

And our comprehensive options - which range from investment comparison and monitoring tools to model portfolios and access to discretionary fund managers – help you make the most of the extensive choice available.

Our Funds Promise

Most platforms offer a large choice of investments and ARC is no different.

However, if you choose an insured fund on ARC (this means a fund which name starts with ‘Aegon’ or ‘Scottish Equitable’) it’s backed by full fund governance. These funds are monitored by us to check whether they’re offering quality and performance consistent with our Funds Promise. This offers you and your clients a degree of reassurance not normally associated with platform investing.
