The Stable Value Portfolio seeks to produce stable principal balances and a stable and predictable return while avoiding negative returns. It also seeks to protect principal, maintain liquidity for Account Owner transactions and, in most market environments, provide a higher return than a money market fund.
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.
The Stable Value Portfolio is primarily subject to a moderate level of income risk and low levels of credit risk, derivatives risk and interest rate risk. For a complete description of the investment risks associated with this portfolio, and a complete list of information on investment options, managers, and asset classes associated with the underlying investments of the Stable Value Portfolio, please see the Invest529 Program Description(PDF).
