Stable Value Consultants Open for Business

Chris Tobe has started a niche consulting firm that works primarily on stable value.

Stable Value Consultants will do project, hourly, and retainer consulting for plans, collective trusts and the stable value industry.  The firm is set up to help plans minimize their liability in their stable value option, while providing solid returns above money market, according to an announcement. 

Tobe also has a new white paper titled “Financial Crisis and Subsequent Regulations effect on Stable Value.” The paper states that although stable value is 20% to 40% of assets in many DC plans, most general consultants only have a superficial knowledge of stable value.  It cites a recent survey from July 2010 that shows that 46% of plans feel they need to address the increased scrutiny around Stable Value Plans.

The paper is available by request by email:
