Name change for the Aegon High Income fund

Fund_Update.jpg

From 5 July 2022, the Aegon High Income fund will be known as the Aegon Pension Diversified Monthly Income fund.

Nothing else about the fund will change because of this update. For example, the fund manager, charges and Aegon risk rating will remain the same.

The change in more detail

The underlying fund manager, Aegon Asset Management, has updated the fund’s name. To ensure consistency, we’re updating our version of the fund. The fund’s short names, which appear on plan statements, will also change to reflect this. Details can be found in the tables below:

Investors will start to notice the changes on their plan statements, in our literature and on our website from 5 July 2022. The changes will be implemented gradually across our material, so they may notice both the old and new fund names in use for a time.
