Group heritage

 

Aegon's heritage dates to 1844, when a funeral association in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands was founded. The next 140 years saw a range of insurance and investment businesses evolve in the Netherlands.

 

The name Aegon originated in 1983, when two Dutch insurance companies (AGO and ENNIA) merged to become the second largest insurer in the Netherlands. Throughout the 1980s the company accelerated its international expansion. This included in the US, where Aegon bought the Baltimore-based life insurer Monumental Corporation in 1986. By 1988 Aegon had brought its growing US business together under a single name: Aegon USA, with its headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

 

In 1999 Aegon acquired Transamerica, one of the best-known insurers in the United States, and a company with a rich history of its own. This was the largest purchase ever made by a Dutch company overseas and the second largest in US insurance industry. Transamerica operates under its own brand name in North America and remains one of the most-familiar names in the American insurance industry.
