MetLife executives spoke to PLANSPONSOR about the value that stable value offers participants and the importance to plan sponsors of including stable value in their lineups .
Tom Schuster, vice president and head of MetLife’s Stable Value Investment Products, explains why stable value is an increasingly attractive option for plan sponsors and participants, particularly compared to money market funds.
The 2013 study gauged perceptions of, and insights into, the stable value product landscape. Areas of focus included how plan sponsors access stable value offerings and communication between plan sponsors and stable value fund providers.
MetLife commissioned this study to gain strategic insights into how aware sponsors and stable value fund providers were about book guarantee features, and the perceptions about the importance and value of various guarantee provisions.
