Transamerica chose Milliman Financial Risk Management LLC (Milliman FRM), a Chicago-based SEC-registered investment adviser and a global leader in institutional risk management, to act as sub-adviser for the DeltaShares Managed Risk ETFs.

ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon moderated a panel Monday morning in NYC on the DeltaShares Managed Risk ETFs. Panelists included Joe Becker (Milliman), Vinit Srivastava (S&P), Brian Lockhart (Peak Capital), and Julie Abbott (JP Morgan).

Among the topics, the panel discussed how the risk-managed strategy is different from smart beta strategies.
