Put Option

stable value term (unrelated to derivatives) that describes the ability of a plan to exit a stable value commingled fund at contract value, subject to a specified notice period. A put option may mean either (1) a provision under the fund documentation that an invested plan can exit the fund at contract value by the end of a notice period or (2) a provision that many investment managers of stable value commingled funds request in their stable value investment contracts, allowing them to remove invested assets at contract value for purposes of funding plan-initiated withdrawals within the put period.
