Stable Value

Stable Value

Keep risk down with a stable value option that steadily rises.

Why Stable Value?

This income-producing, low-risk investment option consistently outperforms both money market funds and inflation while providing a guarantee of principal and interest.1 As a result, employees feel more confident about investing for their futures.

What is it?

Stable value is a principal preservation option in a Defined Contribution Plan that provides returns comparable to intermediate duration bonds with volatility comparable to money market funds. Unlike money market funds, stable value exceeds inflation, which positively impacts purchasing power.

Stable Value is unique:

  • Accessible only through qualified retirement plans
  • One of the most reliable capital preservation options available
  • Safeguards against financial losses
  • Backed by the financial strength of a Stable Value industry leader1
