Stable value funds are a safe choice for 401(k) investment plans and are especially beneficial for people nearing retirement, reports U.S. News & World Report. This type of fund does not fluctuate like regular stocks do, and it does not lose value when interest rates rise. Most 401(k) plans provide individuals with online tools that automate investment choices. Individuals enter a specific retirement date and follow the step-by-step instructions to set up asset allocations. Once a 401(k) plan is in place, it is wise to leave funds alone until retirement, because 401(k) money is protected from creditors.
