A capital for capital

Iowa is a hub for the finance and insurance industries. In fact, more than 6,400 companies call Iowa home—many of which you’ll find on the Fortune 500. These companies are capitalizing on Iowa’s progressive and responsive regulatory environment. It’s really how a whole state has become the capital of capital.

Iowa has created a diverse and robust economy. And the finance and insurance industries take full advantage of it. That’s because Iowa is a leader in employee-owned firms, entrepreneurial activity and job creation. So it’s no wonder why Iowa’s GDP in the insurance industry is one of the nation’s best.
