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.

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Radu Gheorghe, Software Engineer at Sematext Group, will talk more about the things that matter: kinds of buffers, protocols, ways of parsing, correlating and de-duplicating messages, as well as supported inputs and outputs.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
