Without a doubt, stable value is experiencing a resurgence of sorts in the wake of money market reform and recent volatility. Pavilion Advisory Group interviewed four major stable value managers (Galliard, JPMorgan, New York Life and Putnam) on the state of the marketplace.
Key questions asked were:
- What major trends did you notice in 2015?
- What are the largest anticipated challenges for stable value funds?
- What trends do you see in terms of fees, duration, market value-to-book value ratios, wrap capacity and type of wrap (such as global)?
- Do you expect increased usage of stable value within target date funds or retirement income solutions?
