A big part of the working capital that helps Colorado open its doors, invest in new projects and grow its workforce comes from long-term investments by life insurers. Our companies have invested $132 billion in Colorado’s economy through bonds for education, affordable housing, industry and infrastructure, and mortgages for apartments/multifamily and residences, among many other investments. We are here to strengthen businesses and communities across the Centennial State.
