Effective on or about May 1, 2016, Transamerica Money Market changed its name to Transamerica Government Money Market, and the fund is operating as a “government” money market fund under new federal regulations, which become fully effective on October 14, 2016. A “government” money market fund invests at least 99.5% of its total assets in U.S. government securities, cash, and/or repurchase agreements that are fully collateralized by U.S. government securities or cash. Transamerica Asset Management, Inc. and its affiliates are under no obligation to provide financial support to the fund or take other measures to ensure that you do not lose money on your investment in the fund. As a government money market fund, the fund is not required to impose a fee upon sale of your shares (liquidity fees) or temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the fund liquidity falls below required minimums (redemption gates), and has no current intention to voluntarily impose such liquidity fees or redemption gates. However, the Board of Trustees reserves the right to impose liquidity fees and/or redemption gates in the future.
You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. The Fund may impose a fee upon sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the Fund's liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund's sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.
