​An optimized portfolio

On March 5, 2012, AEGON Fund Management announced changes to its fund offering involving several fund mergers.  As a result, changes to the investment options within all Transamerica universal life contracts that hold the impacted funds will take effect April 23, 2012. This includes all EstateADVANTAGETM and WealthADVANTAGETM universal life products.

To ensure that we continue to offer an optimized portfolio of investment options within our universal life contracts, the new Designated Indices have been selected from leading and experienced Canadian investment managers with a consistent track record of delivering above-average returns.*

Effective April 23, 2012, the following Designated Indices are being substituted with Designated Indices with similar investment objectives. Accordingly, the names of the corresponding Managed Index Interest Options have been updated to reflect the new Designated Indices, as listed below.

*Past performance is not a projection of future performance. Returns are not guaranteed, and may be either positive or negative.

**These Interest Options are not mutual funds, they simply “index” the performance of certain mutual funds. Clients are not purchasing units in the mutual fund or any security, but are receiving an interest rate that is credited each business day.
