Transamerica Financial Advisors has picked FOLIOfn Institutional as its partner of choice as it launches its new Transamerica I-Series, a separately managed account program utilizing ETFs.
The new program is part of a long-range strategy to introduce new and innovative investment programs to the Transamerica advisor network. The fourth quarter roll-out initially consisted of five ETF-based asset allocation portfolios developed for clients of Transamerica’s IA reps.
“We created this program to satisfy the demand from advisors for a model-based ETF solution that was low-cost and provided broad diversification for their clients,” explains Sandy Brown, Transamerica president.
Eventually, the Transamerica I-Series product offering will be expanded to include other ETF-based strategies such as core/satellite and target maturity portfolios.
