OVERALL MORNINGSTAR™ RATING
CALENDAR YEAR PERFORMANCE
The fund is newly organized. The fund acquired the assets and assumed the liabilities of three Transamerica Partners funds, including Transamerica Partners Institutional Short Horizon (the “predecessor fund”), on May 19, 2017, and the predecessor fund is the accounting and performance survivor of the reorganizations. This means that the predecessor fund’s financial and performance history became the financial and performance history of the fund. In the reorganization of the predecessor fund, shareholders of the predecessor fund received Class R4 shares of the fund. The performance of Class R4 shares includes the performance of the predecessor fund prior to the reorganization, and has not been restated to reflect the estimated annual operating expenses of Class R4 shares. Please read the prospectus for more information.

**Reflects average annual returns. Returns for funds that are less than one year old are not annualized.

Tracking Error is the difference between the price behavior of a fund and the price behavior of a benchmark. R-Squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s movements that can be explained by movements in a benchmark index.
