What are cookies?

Cookies are small files of letters and numbers that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a more efficient and enjoyable browsing experience and allows us to improve our site.


Cookies are used in the same way across all web pages under the domain. If you access a webpage via our site where cookies are handled differently you will be made aware.

Aegon AM's use of cookies

Some Cookies may process personal data which will be detailed below. For further information on how Aegon AM processes personal data and your rights as a data subject please see our Privacy Statement.


No non-essential Cookies are placed on your computer without your consent, which you can manage and withdraw any time. We may place temporary Cookies, both first party from Aegon AM or third party from other companies, in relation to specific promotional campaigns or in order for us to better serve you with interest-based advertising and tailored content. For more information on this please read below, and the information provided in the Cookie Preference Center (button at the top and bottom of this page). 

Type of cookies used on this website

We use the following types of cookies, for which more information can be found below including their purpose and expiry:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies
  • Analytics Cookies
  • Tailored Content Cookies


Strictly Necessary Cookies

These first party cookies are essential to make this website function correctly and enable you to use all website features. The website will not function properly without these cookies. Consequently, these cookies are placed automatically whenever a user visits this website and cannot be turned off via the Cookie Preference Centre. 


These cookies expire either after a maximum of 365 days or after a website session depending on the cookie type. Go to the Cookie Preference Center to review the individual cookies.


Analytics Cookies

We use Google Analytics on this website, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (including its affiliates and subsidiaries).  Google Analytics cookies are placed automatically when visiting our website.  These cookies collect personal information such as IP address and your activity on this website, which is transmitted to and compiled by Google on an aggregated basis, and then provided to us. We use this analytics data (eg. Pages visited and duration) for statistical purposes, and to help us manage the website and improve the user experience. 


IP addresses collected by Google Analytics cookies are promptly pseudonymised (by replacing a portion of the address with zeros) before any storage or other processing occurs. IP addresses collected by Google Analytics cookies are not merged with any other data processed by Google and are not processed by Google for purposes other than website analytics, nor are they shared by Google with Aegon Asset Management. Once pseudonymised the IP address cannot be used to identify an individual website visitor. No other identifiable information is processed by these cookies nor shared with third parties. 


You can read more about Google’s IP Anonymization process here


Information that is collected through Google Analytics cookies may be transmitted by Google to its servers in the European Union, in the United States or elsewhere.


We also use a session cookie provided by New Relic that enables us to monitor the performance of our website by providing a session count. No personal data is collected or processed by this cookie.


The Google Analytics cookies expire after 2 years. Go to the Cookie Preference Center to review the individual cookies preferences and turn them on and off.


Tailored Content Cookies

These cookies allow us to store data such as whether you have accessed the site before and track choices you make while on the site. They also allow us to track how you interact with the website and any related emails to help us ensure we provide the most relevant and engaging information to you. These cookies, owned by third parties like Pardot (a marketing automation solution provider), may involve collecting and processing personal data, especially if you are an existing customer/business contact of ours or have setup an online account. The resulting data may be processed by third parties on our behalf but not for their own use.


These cookies can be turned on and off as desired and will not be placed without your consent, via the Cookie banner or Preference Centre.


These cookies expire after a maximum of 365 days. Go to the Cookie Preference Center to review the individual cookies.


Managing cookie settings and deleting cookies

Through the Cookie Preference Center, you can control which analytics and tailored content cookies are placed on your device. For example, if you do not want a certain analytics cookie placed on your device, you can set that restriction in the Cookie Preference Center. These settings can be changed by you at any time. You also have the ability to choose to ‘Reject All’ cookies, which will include some but not all of those deemed Strictly Necessary (some are still placed in order to maintain minimum functionality), using the cookie banner or Cookie Preference Center.


Alternatively, your Internet browser may provide the ability to control the placement of cookies on your device (including strictly necessary cookies), such as blocking the placement of cookies or requiring that you affirmatively consent to the placement of a cookie on your device. For further information about how to do so, please refer to your browser 'help' / 'tool' or 'edit' section. Our website recognises ‘do not track’ signals from web browsers.


Please note restricting the placement of cookies on your device may impair the functionality of this website and reduce the quality of your browsing experience. Significantly, if you choose to reject or block all Cookies (including some important Strictly Necessary Cookies) you may not be able to access or use all or part of this website.
