A big part of the working capital that helps Nebraska open its doors, invest in new projects and grow its workforce comes from long-term investments by life insurers. Our companies have invested $45 billion in Nebraska’s economy with agricultural loans, education bonds, residential and retail mortgages and more. We are here to strengthen businesses and communities across the Cornhusker State.
