Name change for the Aegon Threadneedle UK Social Bond (BLK) fund

Fund_Update.jpg

From 26 July 2022, the Aegon Threadneedle UK Social Bond (BLK) fund will be known as the Aegon CT UK Social Bond (BLK) fund across all share classes available via the Aegon TargetPlan fund range.

Nothing else about the fund will change as a result of this; for example, the way the fund is managed, the fund’s TargetPlan risk profile and fund manager will remain the same.

The change in more detail

The underlying fund manager, Columbia Threadneedle Investments is removing the word “Threadneedle” from its funds and introducing the new prefix “CT” to better reflect its global brand. To ensure consistency with the underlying fund, we’re changing our fund name. Details can be found in the table below:

Investors may start to notice the change on their statements, in our literature and on our website from 26 July 2022 onwards. The change will be implemented gradually, so investors may notice both the old and new information in use for a time.

For more information on this fund you can view the fund factsheet via the ‘Fund prices and performance page’ and selecting ‘TargetPlan funds’.
