New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) Religare Enterprises and Dutch financial services major Aegon today said they have decided to part ways, a month after just getting the Securities and Exchange Board of India's (Sebi's) green signal to launch an asset management company.

While Religare Enterprises holds a 44 per cent stake, Bennett, Coleman has 30 per cent and Aegon the balance 26 per cent.
