VIG Asset Management Hungary has a history of more than 25 years through its predecessors. Founded in 1995, the Company operated as an asset management subsidiary of the Dutch-owned Aegon Insurance Company until 2009. In 2009, our Asset Management Company became part of the Aegon Global Asset Management. Our experience has enabled us to become the asset management hub of the Central and Eastern European Region within Aegon Global Asset Management, while managing the assets of Polish, Romanian and Hungarian insurance companies, pension funds, investment funds and unit-linked funds.
During this period, our Company won the Asset Management Company of the Year Awardfour times at the Privátbankár.hu Classic Awards (2015, 2017, 2020, 2021)
In 2020, the Dutch owner decided to sell some of its interests in Eastern and Central Europe to the Austrian-based VIG Group, a well-known player in the Hungarian market through Union Insurance Company. The Hungarian Asset Management subsidiary, part of the Aegon Group, has joined the VIG Group in 2022 as one of the most successful companies in the Hungarian asset management market, with the Hungarian State as a minority shareholder in its Hungarian interests.
In 2022 our Company received the Domestic ESG Asset Manager of the Year Award in recognition of our expertise in sustainable investing.
From 2023, in addition to Alfa Insurance Company (formerly Aegon Hungary Insurance Company) and VIG Voluntary Pension Fund (formerly Aegon Voluntary Pension Fund), our Company will also manage the assets of Union Insurance Company, thus managing a total of nearly HUF 1,000 billion in assets for its clients.
