From 2 June 2023, we’re changing the fund names of the Aegon BlackRock Pacific Growth (BLK) fund and the Aegon BlackRock Japanese Growth (BLK) fund across all share classes available in the Aegon TargetPlan fund range. We’ve written to those affected.

Nothing else about the funds is changing at this time.

The change in more detail

The underlying fund manager, BlackRock, is updating the underlying fund names to better reflect the fund’s investment style. To make sure our version of the funds matches the underlying funds, we’re updating them. Details in the table below:
