OVERALL MORNINGSTAR™ RATING
CALENDAR YEAR PERFORMANCE
The fund is newly organized. The fund acquired the assets and assumed the liabilities of two Transamerica Partners funds, including Transamerica Partners Institutional Stock Index (the “predecessor fund”), on April 21, 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.
*Expense ratios are as-of the most recent prospectus. Contractual arrangements (if applicable) have been made with the fund’s investment manager, Transamerica Asset Management, Inc. (“TAM”), through May 1, 2019.
**Reflects average annual returns. Returns for funds that are less than one year old are not annualized.
The performance data presented here represents past performance; Past performance is not indicative of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Performance may not be available for all periods indicated. Net Asset Value (NAV) returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, but do not reflect any sales charges. If a sales charge had been deducted, the results would have been lower. Public Offering Price (POP) returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, and reflect the maximum sales charge.
There are no sales charges for Class R4 shares. Class R shares are available only to eligible retirement plans.
Performance figures reflect any fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements by the Investment Manager. Without such waivers and/or reimbursements, the performance would be lower. Future waivers and/or reimbursements are at the discretion of the Investment Manager.
1 Year returns reflect total return.
Risk measures are in comparison a blended benchmark made up of 60% S&P 500® and 40% BofA Merrill Lynch HY BB-B Constrained Index. Standard Deviation is a statistical measurement that helps to gauge the fund's historical volatility. Historical Beta illustrates a fund’s sensitivity to price movements in relation to a benchmark index. Alpha is a coefficient measuring the portion of a fund’s return arising from specific (non-market) risk. 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. Sharpe Ratio is a risk-adjusted measure calculated by using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. Information Ratio is a ratio of portfolio returns above those of a benchmark compared to the volatility of those returns.
U.S. allocations may include U.S. territories and possessions.
The Net Other Assets (Liabilities) category may include, but is not limited to, repurchase agreements, reverse repurchase agreements, security lending collateral, forward foreign currency contracts, and cash collateral.
The S&P 500® is an unmanaged index used as a general measure of market performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
An index fund has operating and other expenses while an index does not. As a result, while the fund will attempt to track the S&P 500® as closely as possible, it will tend to underperform the index to some degree over time. If an index fund is properly correlated to its stated index, the fund will perform poorly when the index performs poorly. Equity funds invest in equity securities, which include common stock, preferred stock, and convertible securities. Because such securities represent ownership in a corporation, they tend to be more volatile than ﬁxed income or debt securities, which do not represent ownership.
Shares may be sold (or “redeemed”) on any day the New York Stock Exchange is open for business. Proceeds from the redemption of shares will usually be sent to the redeeming shareholder within three business days after receipt in good order of a request for redemption. 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%.
