The 2017 Stable Value Study, which surveyed defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors, DC plan advisors and stable value fund providers, is the fourth study that MetLife has commissioned to gain strategic insight into the current marketplace for stable value, a capital preservation option offered in DC plans.
Conducted by Greenwald & Associates, in partnership with Strategic Insight, this year’s study explores plan sponsors' familiarity with money market fund reform, and the extent to which they have taken steps to evaluate their use of money market in their DC plans. The study also looks at other trends, such as the use of stable value in target date funds, both off-the-shelf and custom.
