Fund governance is the most important function we perform on behalf of our investors. Our Fund Governance Group is independent of our fund management functions and stands in the customer's place with the aim of ensuring the funds we offer are appropriate for your clients and perform as expected.
Our Funds Promise
Aegon's Fund Governance Group has ultimate responsibility for ensuring that we meet our Funds Promise commitments to your clients:
- We aim to offer high quality funds which meet their objectives.
- We monitor funds to check if they perform as expected.
- We take action if funds don't meet expectations.
- We give you the facts you need to make decisions.
Our Funds Promise applies to Aegon funds available to UK investors. These funds typically have a name starting with 'Aegon', 'LF Aegon' or 'Scottish Equitable'.
How our governance process works
The Fund Governance Group is responsible for governing Aegon funds. To do this it focuses on four key areas:
There's no guarantee the funds will meet their objectives. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and isn't guaranteed. Your client could get back less than they invest.
