What is Aegon Investment Limited’s (AIL) commitment to the Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code?

Back to results

The UK Stewardship Code is a set of principles that investment managers are expected to follow. The Code aims to enhance the quality of engagement between investors and companies with the aim of improving long-term risk-adjusted returns to shareholders.

Aegon Investment Limited (AIL) - statement of compliance*

AIL is the company that manages Aegon’s open-ended investment company (OEIC) fund ranges. AIL is pleased to endorse the principles of the Code. 

In practice, as we manage fund of funds, we are not directly able to influence the companies held by the collective investment schemes we invest in. However, we consider the disclosures made by underlying fund managers to assess their commitment to the Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code.

This applies to all funds where AIL is appointed as investment manager.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and isn’t guaranteed. Investors may get back less than the amount invested.

*This sets out the extent to which AIL complies with the Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code.
