Saturation is (μ, κ)-transferable in T if and only if there is an expansion T1 of T with |T1| = |T| such that if M is a μ-saturated model of T1 and |M| ≥ κ then the reduct M|L(T) is κ-saturated. We characterize theories which are superstable without f.c.p., or without f.c.p. as, respectively those where saturation is (ℵ0, λ)-transferable or (κ(T), λ)-transferable for all λ. Further if for some μ ≥ |T|,2μ > μ+, stability is equivalent to for all μ ≥ |T|, saturation is (μ, 2μ)-transferable.
