Aegon

Aegon Growth Capital Fund has purchased 25 percent of the shares in InsurTech service provider RISK Verzekeringen, both parties have announced.

Founded in the Netherlands in 2000, RISK is a service provider and proxy company for financial advisors, online labels and insurers. The company’s philosophy is that financial advisors who use RISK can fully focus on their core task of providing direct advice to their clients. In the background, RISK takes care of mid- and back-office tasks such as the administrative processing of policies and claims.

The partnership fits neatly with Aegon’s strategy of providing customers with both choice and best-in-class digital solutions, according to Maarten Edixhoven, CEO of Aegon The Nederlands.
