Transamerica to Acquire Mercer Defined Contribution Business
Transamerica (through an affiliate) has signed an agreement to acquire Mercer’s defined contribution (DC) administration book of business.1 As part of an ongoing alliance, we also will become the preferred DC administration provider for the organization’s total benefit and total retirement outsourcing offerings.
With the addition of Mercer’s 917,000 participants and $71 billion in plan assets, Transamerica would provide plan administration and/or recordkeeping services for nearly five million participants and $216 billion in retirement plan assets, putting us firmly in the top 10 for both those measures.2

Managed Advice® is Transamerica’s comprehensive retirement planning solution. It helps take the hard work (and guesswork) of researching, investing, and managing retirement plan accounts out of participants' hands.
Managed Advice helps participants manage their retirement plan investments and their savings rates, to help them stay on course for a funded retirement, and it:
- Combines automated saving and investing services with personalized, one-on-one advice from professional retirement counselors at no additional cost.
- Embraces the critical role of retirement plan advisors with a flexible design to complement different service models.
- Accomplishes this while also staying true to our core strengths: open architecture, fee transparency, and cutting-edge, industry-leading technology.
Learn more about how Managed Advice can help your plan participants.
Managed Advice® provides a participant with an asset allocation mix of funds available within the plan. The asset allocation mix will be automatically rebalanced to become more conservative over time as the participant approaches a designated retirement year. Additional fees and terms and conditions apply to the Managed Advice® service. Retirement date portfolios are subject to the same risks as the underlying asset classes in which they invest. The higher the portfolio’s allocation to stocks the greater the risk. The principal value of the portfolio is never guaranteed, including at and after the target date.
The Managed Advice® service is offered through Transamerica Retirement Advisors, LLC (TRA), registered investment advisor. Transamerica Retirement Solutions and TRA are affiliated companies. Depending on the option chosen by the plan fiduciary, the Managed Advice® service may be offered through, and the asset allocation portfolios constructed by, the plan’s investment advisor. If the plan chooses this option, only the Managed Advice® one-on-one advisory services are provided by TRA at the direction of the plan’s investment advisor. To find out more, please call your Transamerica representative.
Securities are offered through Transamerica Investors Securities Corporation (TISC), 440 Mamaroneck Avenue, Harrison, NY 10528. TISC and TRA are affiliated companies.
