Aegon AM named Responsible Investor of the Year

We were delighted that Aegon Asset Management was named Responsible Investor of the Year in the asset management category of the Insurance Asset Risk Awards 2022. These awards formally recognize the very best in insurance asset management across Europe.

Judges praised Aegon AM for the strong evidence of our market-leading capability through innovative investment strategies; together with effective ESG integration and stewardship; and strong third-party endorsement from groups such as the Principles for Responsible Investment.


This is the second consecutive year in which Aegon AM has been successful at the Insurance Asset Risk Awards. In 2021 we won the Investment Innovation of the Year for the development of the Aegon Global Sustainable Sovereign Bond strategy.


Aegon AM is a leader in responsible investment, with a 30-year heritage of providing innovative ESG-themed investment solutions for clients. In 2021 we expanded our dedicated responsible investment team with three additional professionals, bringing the total to 17. The team has a broad remit, including conducting in-depth sustainability and impact research; contributing to the development of specialist ESG-themed products; supporting investment teams with ESG integration; leading our active ownership activities; and advising on ESG policies and reporting.


Commenting on the award, Aegon AM’s Head of Responsible Investing, Brunno Maradei, said:



"The past decade has seen a major shift towards responsible investment, which many insurance investors are embracing. Aegon AM has been at the forefront of responsible investing for more than three decades, so we are well-placed to support our insurance clients in this area.
