- 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.
Talk to us today 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.

Delivering results while also offering critical fiduciary support to retirement plan sponsors
In addition to providing participants with a comprehensive retirement planning solution, Managed Advice can help plan sponsors manage their fiduciary responsibilities.
Managed Advice can be offered in an array of formats that address a retirement sponsor's fiduciary needs by acting as the following:
- A voluntary, opt-in service that provides retirement advice.
- Part of a targeted approach for a specific group of plan participants (such as defaulted participants).
- The key element of a more universal re-enrollment strategy where Managed Advice serves as a Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA).
Under all structures, Managed Advice provides fiduciary coverage within the service from a registered investment advisor.
In addition, Managed Advice is: customized to each plan’s fund lineup, provides access to the retirement advice that your participants need, and affords sponsors a unique opportunity to engage their trusted advisors in new ways.
