Some info on stable value funds …

Here’re some facts and links that may help anyone who is researching on stable value funds.

Personally, I put all the cash in my 401(k) into a GIC, which works just like a money market fund as sweep account to trade other mutual funds in the 401(k) account. Currently it yields a little over 4% annually.

Stable Value Funds

Preserve principal and earn a stable rate of return. Their current average yield is around 4%.

Funds own high-quality asset-backed securities, corporate bonds, U.S. Treasuries.

Funds have returned 7.19% annually over the past 10 years, vs. 5.28% for money market funds and 8.45% for taxable bond funds.
