The value of your investment may be more volatile to the extent that the fund borrows or uses derivatives or other investments that have a leveraging effect on the fund. Other risks also will be compounded. This is because leverage generally magnifies the effect of a change in the value of an asset and creates a risk of loss of value on a larger pool of assets than the fund would otherwise have had. The use of leverage is considered to be a speculative investment practice and may result in the loss of a substantial amount, and possibly all, of the fund’s assets. The fund also may have to sell assets at inopportune times to satisfy its obligations. The price of equity securities fluctuates based on changes in a company’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions. If the market prices of the equity securities owned by the fund fall, the value of the fund will decline. Fixed income securities have several risks including fluctuations in market value, changes in interest rates as the values will decrease as interest rates rise, and issuers defaulting on their obligations to pay interest or return principal.
Shares may be sold (or “redeemed”) on any day the New York Stock Exchange is open for business.

However, Transamerica Funds has the right to take up to seven days to pay redemption proceeds, and may postpone payment under certain circumstances, as authorized by law.
Due to rounding, not all of the percentages will equal 100%.
