A good laugh and a long run are the two best cures for anything.

As someone with actuarial training, I’m very familiar with the statistics that correlate poor health habits with life expectancy. So I find Transamerica’s focus on the connection between financial and physical well-being intuitive. By offering insights and tools to support not only financial planning but also a healthy lifestyle, our value proposition is relevant for anyone pursuing an active and meaningful retirement.

To maintain my own health, I find running to be relaxing and invigorating. I also enjoy golf and trap shooting, which keeps my eye-hand coordination well-tuned. And, of course, time with my wife and sons is the best boost to well-being.
