CollegeInvest announced today that Stable Value Plus, its guaranteed fixed-income 529 college savings plan, is holding its position offering the second highest rate of return for stable value accounts in the country. A rate increase effective December 1, 2016, provides earnings of 2.59 percent, net of all fees.

Stable Value Plus is one of four 529 college savings options offered by CollegeInvest, which boasts one of the most diverse menus of savings options anywhere in the country. Stable Value Plus provides a guaranteed annual rate of return and can be opened with as little as $25, making the plan an extremely popular choice among Colorado families who are saving for college.

More CollegeInvest account holders are placing their college savings in Stable Value Plus accounts than ever before. Over the past three years, the number of Stable Value Plus accounts has increased by 46 percent and assets have more than doubled.
