Aegon comment on the Chancellors Summer Statement

AGN

State pensioners left waiting till Autumn Budget to find out fate of triple lock. And no Indications of whether the pensions tax relief system may be facing radical reform. Kickstart Youth Jobs Scheme “The kickstart scheme which will temporarily supplement wages for many under 25s gaining employment in additional jobs will be a welcome boost for this age group who in financial if not health terms have been particularly adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. For some, while perhaps not front of mind, it could also offer a welcome kickstart to their pension. The minimum wage for a 22 year old working the minimum 25 hours would exceed £10,000 a year and if working 35 hours a week is £14,924. So as well as employment, kickstarters could see contributions of up to £700 being paid over a full year into what for many will be their first pension. The Chancellor will have to make a call as to whether to suspend the earnings related element, adjust it to smooth out sharp fluctuations or to make a more fundamental change, with some people viewing it as overly generous. But after prioritising younger generations in this Summer statement, the Chancellor will have a careful balancing act to perform to sell changes to state pensions to older generations.”.

AGN

Aegon broadens Member Insights access to help schemes focus on their health. Data, insights, and communication with members are more important than ever during the pandemic, Aegon said, but a "360" overview of a scheme may be necessary.

Aegon’s (AMS:AGN) Shareholders Are Down 60% On Their Shares

AGN

Aegon N.V. (AMS:AGN) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 17% in the last quarter. But if you look at the last five years the returns have not been good. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time. During the unfortunate half decade during which the share price slipped, Aegon actually saw its earnings per share (EPS) improve by 14% per year. So it doesn’t seem like EPS is a great guide to understanding how the market is valuing the stock. Or possibly, the market was previously very optimistic, so the stock has disappointed, despite improving EPS. We realise that Baron Rothschild has said investors should “buy when there is blood on the streets”, but we caution that investors should first be sure they are buying a high quality business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. For example, we’ve discovered 4 warning signs for Aegon (1 is a bit concerning!)

Aegon reports drop in CI claims

AGN

Statistics show that 37% fewer policyholders claimed on their critical illness (CI) insurance during May. While Aegon claims for CI were significantly lower for April and May compared to the previous year (17% and 37% less respectively), the insurer has also reported an increase in life insurance claims during the course of the pandemic. Simon Jacobs, head of underwriting and claims at Aegon UK said: "The claims team has worked really hard to support families of those who have lost loved ones during this time. "People being mindful of burdening the NHS, might have delayed a GP visit or might have missed early detection due to limited screenings for things like breast and bowel cancer. "As NHS services resume and lockdown loosens, we might expect to see a steady increase in claims over the coming months. Early detection is important when it comes to cancer and treatment options so we would urge those who have a health concern to seek medical advice as soon as they can." Aegon has also encountered fewer accident related life insurance claims over the past few months.

Aegon stops Unbiased signposting as IFAs demand choice

LLOY AV +3 more LLOY AV AGN AV SLA

Aegon no longer signposts customers to Unbiased and now directs them to the MAS (Money Advice Service) directory instead. Providers signposting customers to Unbiased has not been an issue for advisers in the past. But recent changes to the way Unbiased sells enquiries – alongside a move to promote its ‘matching’ service more heavily than its directory – has led advisers to complain about an increase in ‘low quality’ enquiries that are becoming increasingly costly to advisers. Some advisers think this is being exacerbated by providers directing customers to Unbiased when they may be better suited elsewhere. This was not as much of an issue when Unbiased did not charge for enquiries. But now each enquiry costs £45, advisers may end up ‘paying for the privilege’ of giving free advice. Alan Chan (pictured below), financial planner at London-based IFS Wealth & Pensions, said he does not have any issues with providers still signposting to Unbiased, but he would like to see them also signposting to alternative directories such as AdviserBook or the PFS’s directory Your Money, so consumers have some choice.
