Your confidence is well placed in your master trust board. The trustee board members have been handpicked to oversee the Aegon Master Trust (AMT), carefully selected for their deep understanding of pensions management and governance and also their broad level of experience.
The trustees provide governance and investment oversight completely independently of Aegon. They're responsible for the running of the AMT, working for the best interests of the scheme members, alongside their employers, in the trust. If it matters to you - it matters to them.
