Capital Preservation Option
 


Do you value safety over risk?
 

The Capital Preservation Option1 has an interest rate that changes semi-annually and seeks income consistent with the preservation of principal. The current APY rate of this portfolio can be found on the Price and Performance Page, located here.

Note: The Guaranteed Option2 was closed to new contributions after February 22, 2019.

1The Capital Preservation Option invests all of its assets in a Funding Agreement, “Funding Agreement”, issued by the Principal Life Insurance Company. The Funding Agreement is a separate account contract between the Principal Life Insurance Company and the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority. The annualized yield will be fixed for six month periods, updating semi-annually.
2In February 2023, or earlier depending on certain conditions, any remaining assets in the Guaranteed Option will automatically move to the Capital Preservation Option or a similar investment available at that time. You may also exchange or withdraw money from the Guaranteed Option at any time. Remember, under federal law, you’re allowed to make two exchanges per calendar year.
