Aegon Part VII Transfer

Welcome to the Part VII Transfer section of our website.

In April 2016, Rothesay Life Plc acquired part of Aegon’s annuity portfolio.

Further to the sale (which was approved by the Prudential Regulation Authority, one of the statutory regulators of financial services in the UK) both Rothesay Life and Aegon have agreed to begin the process of transferring this part of the Aegon annuity business to Rothesay Life

The transfer will be achieved through a Scheme of Transfer which will be submitted to the High Court for its approval under Part VII of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

Further details of the transfer will be added to our website following the initial court hearing, which is scheduled for 27 February 2017.

How does this affect Rothesay Life Policyholders?

If you have a Rothesay Life policy, you do not have to take any action. The acquisition will not change the way that your Rothesay Life policy and pension is operated. The same dedicated Pensions team continues to look after the administration and payment of your pension.
