Transamerica Dividend Focused (TDFAX, TDFCX, TDFIX) seeks total return gained from the combination of dividend yield, growth of dividends, and capital appreciation.
BHMS uses an active contrarian strategy that invests in large- and middle-capitalization stocks listed on U.S. exchanges that have a consecutive 25-year history of paying cash dividends. This includes American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), which generally exhibit more attractive valuations and higher dividend yields than the general market.
Transamerica International Small Cap Value (TISVX) seeks maximum long-term total return by investing primarily in the stocks of small-capitalization companies listed on foreign securities exchanges that the managers believe are undervalued.
TS&W uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to determine relative value. It also employs a consistent sell discipline, regularly reviewing each stock and selling when another stock presents a significantly better risk-reward combination.

Mutual funds are subject to market risk, including the loss of principal. Focused funds are less diversified than other mutual funds; therefore, the performance of each holding in a focused fund has a greater impact upon the overall portfolio, which increases the risks associated with investing in the fund. The prices of securities the sub-adviser believes are undervalued may not appreciate as anticipated or may go down. Investments in global/international markets involve risks not associated with U.S. markets, such as currency fluctuations, adverse social and political developments, and relatively small size and lesser liquidity of the markets.
