Based on a market survey, Aegon's Hungarian companies selected the new brand name, which reflects "both the reliability behind their services and the professional excellence that provides a stable basis for customer relations.

The name Alfa is short, easy to say and remember, and can be interpreted universally. The name means a first, a new beginning; it simultaneously suggests strength and respect for traditions. It refers to the company's historical traditions and current market position. Alfa is the leading insurer of the home insurance market, and through its owners - with the almost 20% market share of VIG-Hungarian State - it is a member of one of the leading insurance groups in Hungary".
