Aegon Retirement Choices (ARC) puts you in control of your clients' financial futures. Our platform provides you with the flexibility to manage wealth accumulation, workplace savings and retirement income through one single online solution.

The range of products and investments can adapt with your clients’ changing financial needs, as they progress through their working life into retirement. And, by bringing all their savings together, your clients could benefit from lower charges and take control of their whole portfolio in one place.

With over 4,500 investment options (as at July 2019), including pension fund solutions built by Aegon, collectives, equities, investment trusts and exchange-traded funds, ARC can meet bespoke client needs.

NextWealth view

Aegon Retirement Choices (or ARC) has been tainted by the acquisition of Cofunds and the servicing issues faced as a result of problems with the platform upgrade. ARC has good functionality, in particular to support clients in decumulation. We understand the worst of the upgrade woes are behind Aegon. In the past advisers have really valued the charge cap on portfolios of over £250k. This can make the platform very economical. It was recently announced that Adrian Grace would be stepping down. A surprise outsider Mike Holliday-Williams, ex-Direct Line, is taking the helm.

I've got a few clients on Aegon. It's not necessarily the best but it's good value for higher end clients purely because of capped charges.
