Transamerica Reduces Fees and Updates Mutual Funds Lineup

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - March 04, 2014) - Transamerica announced changes to its mutual fund lineup today as it continues to provide diverse fixed income and equity solutions. The firm has decided to liquidate a fund, add five new strategies and reduce 12b-1 fees on Class A shares from 0.30% to 0.25%.

Dave Paulsen, Chief Executive Officer of Transamerica Capital, Inc., states, "Because Investors and Financial Advisors continue to tell us they're looking for financial security and stability, we made changes to our mutual fund lineup so our customers can feel confident with their investment options."

The new funds include:

  • Transamerica Strategic High Income (TASHX, TCSHX, TSHIX): The fund's primary objective is to capture a dividend yield greater than the S&P 500® with a secondary objective of outperforming the S&P 500® over 3-5 years with lower volatility. The fund's sub-adviser, Thompson, Siegel & Walmsley LLC (TS&W), believes this strategy offers investors the income potential they need with the risk diversification they want.

  • Transamerica Inflation Opportunities (TIOAX, TIOCX, ITIOX): The fund seeks inflation protection with a broader opportunity set than traditional Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) by investing in both government and credit sectors. The fund's sub-adviser, PineBridge Investments, LLC utilizes a seasoned investment strategy supported by the firm's deep investment resources.

  • Transamerica Global Bond (ATGBX, CTGBX, ITGBX): Designed to meet investor needs for an investment grade fixed income option that is uninhibited by region. Sub-advised by Logan Circle Partners, LP, the fund seeks total returns in a weak dollar and interest rate rallying environment.

  • Transamerica Concentrated Growth (TORAX, TCCGX, TOREX): The strategy employs a concentrated, low-turnover approach investing in predominately large cap companies. The fund is an adoption of Torray Resolute (TOREX) and sub-advised by Torray LLC. 
     
  • Transamerica Intermediate Bond (Class I2 only): The fund is tailored to address the need for a "core" portfolio fixed income strategy that targets the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. The sub-adviser, Aegon USA Investment Management, LLC, is a fixed-income dedicated firm that has been managing money for more than a decade. 
     

The funds will be available to retail and institutional investors through Class A, C, and I shares, with the exception of Transamerica Intermediate Bond, which will only be available in Class I2 at launch. Transamerica Capital, Inc. will lead the sales and distribution efforts within the financial institution, wirehouse and independent financial planner channels.

As part of the ongoing due diligence process with its sub-advisers, the firm has also decided to liquidate Transamerica Large Cap Growth due to recent portfolio management changes.
