Axent, formerly AEGON NabestaandenZorg (NBZ) N.V., is an insurance company which underwrites individual life insurance for funeral services. Starting in 1846 as a general insurance trust fund, the company has been formed through the consolidation of 13 different funeral insurance portfolios of which the major portfolios were: Ago, Axent, NVG, LPU and Momento Mori. Axent is now entirely separate from Aegon
