A big part of the working capital that helps North Dakota open its doors, invest in new projects and grow its workforce comes from long-term investments by life insurers. Our companies have invested $30 billion in North Dakota with agricultural loans, education bonds, retail mortgages and more. We are here to strengthen businesses and communities across the Peace Garden State.

Investing in Affordable Housing
The North Dakota Housing Finance Authority, dedicated to making housing affordable for all North Dakotans, has raised $81 million through bonds purchased by life insurers.
