A big part of the working capital that helps New Jersey open its doors, invest in new projects and grow its workforce comes from long-term investments by life insurers. Our companies have invested $205 billion in New Jersey’s economy with agricultural loans, education bonds, residential and retail mortgages and more. We are here to strengthen businesses and communities across the Garden State.
Investing in Apartments/Multifamily
With investments in mortgages for apartments/multifamily units in Newark, Jersey City, Camden, Trenton and more, life insurers are helping families throughout the state call the Garden State “home.” In all, life insurers have provided $9 billion in financing for these loans.
Investing in Retail
A quarter of the jobs in the state are supported by the retail industry, says the National Retail Federation. Life insurers play a role in this story. They help keep people working and businesses thriving as a result of nearly $4.6 billion in retail mortgages they have provided.
