The goal of stable value funds in a portfolio is capital preservation. They invest, directly or indirectly, in high-quality, short- to intermediate-term fixed income investments, and are distinguished from bond funds by maintaining a constant $1 share price net asset value (NAV).
The stable value funds hold insurance contracts to wrap the underlying fixed income strategies. This allows the stable value fund to use book-value accounting, permitting the fund to maintain the stable share price.

A stable value investment is neither insured nor guaranteed by the U.S. government. There is no assurance that the investment will be able to maintain a stable net asset value, and it is possible to lose money in such an investment.
All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
