“Transamerica dates back to 1904, when its founder, A. P. Giannini opened his first bank, the Bank of Italy, in San Francisco with the goal to make financial services available to everyone, not just the wealthy few. And he did just that. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, Giannini set up a makeshift bank on the San Francisco docks, giving residents loans to rebuild that were secured with only a handshake. In 1928, Giannini merged his bank with Bank of America, and in 1930 acquired Occidental Life Insurance Company through Transamerica Corporation. The banking and life insurance businesses separated in 1956, with the latter taking the Transamerica name, and in 1972, the now iconic Transamerica pyramid claimed its place in the San Francisco skyline. In 1999, Transamerica began a new chapter in its history when it became part of Aegon N.V. Aegon, one of the world’s leading financial services organizations, providing life insurance, pensions and asset management. It is based in The Hague, The Netherlands and has more than 28,000 employees worldwide, who help millions of customers take responsibility for their financial futures. That’s the rich history of Transamerica, and what shapes TFA. For nearly 30 years, TFA has followed Giannini’s vision by bring products, solutions and professional money management, once reserved for the wealthy, to families from all walks of life. TFA Representatives are independent, enabling them to offer products from several industry-leading providers so they can recommend the appropriate product for a client’s needs.”
