Aegon completes joint venture with Brazilian insurer

Aegon has completed its acquisition of a 50 per cent stake in Brazilian life insurer Mongeral S.A. Seguros
e Previdência.

The deal, originally announced last October, strengthens Aegon’s presence in Latin America, an area it identifies as having significant potential for growth.

Aegon says the joint venture is part of a broader strategy to allocate more of the group’s resources to businesses that offer attractive growth and higher returns.

CEO Alex Wynaendts says: “Aegon welcomes the opportunity to partner with one of Brazil’s leading life insurance and pension providers, strengthening our position in this important growth region.”
