Aegon, an international financial services holding company and the parent of Transamerica Corporation, has announced that it intends to move its legal seat to Bermuda. Consequently, Aegon’s group supervision will transfer from the Dutch Central Bank (DNB) to the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA). Aegon will maintain its headquarters in the Netherlands, will remain a Dutch tax resident and will continue to be listed on Euronext Amsterdam and on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Latham & Watkins LLP advised Aegon in the transaction with a corporate team led by New York partner Peter Harwich and Washington, D.C. partners Paul Dudek and Michele Anderson, with associates Kaj Nielsen and Sandy Kugbei. Advice was also provided on tax matters by New York partner Elena Romanova, with associate Aaron Bernstein; on insurance matters by New York partners Gary Boss and Analisa Dillingham and New York counsel Alexander Traum; on securities litigation matters by New York partner Blair Connelly; on capital markets matters by London partners Jennifer Engelhardt, Manoj Tulsiani, and Shawn Anderson; on New York Stock Exchange matters by New York counsel Gail Neely; and on public company representation matters by Washington, D.C. partner Julia Thompson, with associates Wei Cai and Kate Wang.
