Market Value Event

Any event or occurrence outside the normal operation of a plan that may be expected to have an adverse financial effect on the issuer of a stable value investment contract. When such an event occurs, some investment contracts require benefit payments to be made at the contract's market value or surrender value, rather than at book value. Other investment contracts may require a book value adjustment. (See also employer-initiated event.)
