Key Characteristics

  • Targets niche, middle-market, upstream and associated midstream investments with predominately proved, developed and producing (PDP) assets


Aegon Asset Management’s Natural Resources Private Equity team identifies, selects and allocates capital to natural resources investments through direct investments, joint ventures and fund strategies with nonaffiliated management teams that serve as general partners for specific assets. Our natural resources private equity capability is available through the US Upstream Energy investment strategy via a separate account or private fund that seeks to maximize risk-adjusted returns by investing private equity capital with management teams in the oil and gas industry.

The investment team sources under-developed and inefficient oil and gas assets throughout North American onshore oil reserves by selecting management teams in both the primary and secondary markets with significant operating experience and a demonstrated proficiency in identifying and mitigating risks. The strategy invests in a diversified portfolio of upstream and associated midstream oil and natural gas assets with a high concentration of proved, developed and producing (PDP) reserves with the goal of optimizing operations and expanding the reserve base.
