SEC Charges Transamerica Financial Advisors with Improperly Calculating Advisory Fees and Overcharging Clients

The Securities and Exchange Commission announced charges against Transamerica Financial Advisors for improperly calculating advisory fees and overcharging clients. SEC examinations and a subsequent investigation found that Transamerica Financial Advisors offered breakpoint discounts designed to reduce the fees that clients owed to the firm when they increased their assets in certain investment programs. The firm permitted clients to aggregate the values of related accounts in order to get the discounts. However, Transamerica failed to process every aggregation request by clients and also had conflicting policies on whether representatives were required to pass on to clients the savings from breakpoint discounts. As a result, the firm overcharged certain clients by failing to apply the discounts and failed to have adequate policies and procedures to ensure that the firm was properly calculating its fees.
