  • Transamerica Announces New Collaboration With First Trust

    May 21, 2024 by Transamerica

    BALTIMOREMay 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Today Transamerica announced a new collaboration with FT Indexing Solutions LLC (“First Trust”) that adds the First Trust Equity Edge Index™ to the popular and innovative Transamerica Structured Index Advantage® Annuity.

    The new equity index option, Equity First Trust Edge (Nasdaq: FTEQUEDGE), is exclusively available through Transamerica’s registered index-linked annuity. The index provides additional exposure to U.S. equities that exhibit high quality and value, consistent with a balanced investment approach.

    “We are excited to work with an experienced manager like First Trust to offer customers and distribution partners access to an index that helps address key retirement challenges facing Americans today,” said Liza Tyler, Transamerica’s head of annuity solutions. “First Trust Equity Edge provides investors with access to growth potential with limits to downside risk, which is consistent with Transamerica’s mission to help people make the most of what’s important to them.”

    Adding the index enhances Transamerica Structured Index Advantage Annuity’s ability to help investors seeking growth through a diverse range of indexes as well as protection buffers to limit downside market risk. The annuity is a cost-effective solution that reinforces Transamerica’s commitment to helping everyday Americans who are saving to live their best lives in retirement.

    Transamerica’s Structured Index Advantage Annuity already has been extremely popular with customers, surpassing $1 billion in sales in its first two years.

    “We believe that partnering with First Trust will accelerate our growth momentum with its talented distribution force,” said Jonathan Cressman, vice president and managing director for annuities wholesale distribution for Transamerica.

    First Trust is a leading exchange traded funds provider with access to a large network of financial advisors. With $200 billion in assets under management, First Trust will provide exposure to 300 wholesalers and 87,000 financial advisors who can partner directly with Transamerica wholesalers in distributing the custom index.

    The First Trust Equity Edge Index stands out for its unique blend of U.S. equities that demonstrate high quality and value. This innovative approach, which combines two equally weighted methodologies, is sourced from the Value Line Dividend Index™, a benchmark of the highest-yielding stocks in the Value Line universe, and the Nasdaq U.S. Rising Dividend Achievers™ Index, which tracks companies with a history of increasing dividends. This ensures that clients have access to a mix of investments to navigate various market conditions.
