Investment Strategy

The Stable Value Portfolio is invested entirely in a separate investment account managed by Invesco Advisers, Inc. (Invesco). Invesco invests in investment contracts (also referred to as "wrap contracts") (the "Stable Value Fund"). The investment or wrap contracts utilized provide for minimal fluctuation in principal values but the Stable Value Fund is not guaranteed by Invesco or any other entity. Invesco may invest in a portfolio of investment or wrap contracts issued by financial institutions such as insurance companies and banks. Certain investment or wrap contracts and the Stable Value Fund itself may be backed by diversified portfolios of bonds (typically rated Investment Grade at time of purchase), including corporate bonds, mortgage–backed securities, asset–backed securities, and U.S. Government securities (collectively for the purposes of describing the Stable Value Fund, "Securities"). The Stable Value Fund’s overall duration is expected to range from 2 to 4 years, although such duration will be managed opportunistically in light of market conditions and Stable Value Fund liquidity needs.

How to Interpret the Charts

The performance charts display historical performance for Invest529 portfolios. Two values are represented on each chart. The first value is the daily NAV (net asset value) and is represented by the blue line on the chart. The second value is the percent change of the NAV based on a selected timeframe and is represented by the purple line. A date selector can be found underneath the chart that allows for custom date ranges to be chosen. These charts also feature the ability to zoom into pre-determined time periods (Note: Selecting a zoom period will not change the previously selected date range).
