Invest with COUNTRY® Financial -- Invest in Yourself

The investment decisions you make today have a direct impact on your ability to reach your financial goals.

Unless you win the lottery or inherit millions, you probably need to invest to get what you want financially out of life. But that’s easier said than done. Did you know that there are over 8,000 mutual funds available? Add to that all the stocks and bonds, and it’s overwhelming.

COUNTRY is here to help with investment guidance, products and services that can make the investment world a whole lot less intimidating for you. You can choose your own investments or let us do the heavy lifting and invest your money for you.

Mutual funds

Mutual funds have a lot of advantages, but probably the biggest plus is that they provide the most important aspect of investing – diversification. Diversification is spreading your money among different securities. That helps reduce your risk, and that’s important.

It’s also why mutual funds are a good investment if you don’t have huge sums of money to invest. They meet many of the criteria of investing: You’ll be saving for your future; you’ll be diversified; you’ll reduce risk.

Check out the mutual funds available from COUNTRY to see how we can help you.

Managed accounts

If investing money on your own doesn’t appeal to you, then you might want to have investment professionals do it for you. Certainly, people who spend their entire day monitoring the markets and analyzing the mountains of information about securities are better equipped to make investment decisions than the average investor.

COUNTRY has a staff of investment professionals who do just that. Find out more about our managed accounts and put these experts to work for you.


You don’t have to be a Rockefeller to have a trust. In the past few decades, incomes have soared and sizable estates have become commonplace. That has created a much bigger need for trusts in financial planning because sometimes a will isn’t enough.

If you have concerns about your wishes being followed exactly as you want, a trust warrants your consideration. The popular living trust, for example, is invaluable in the event you are incapacitated and can no longer make decisions about your life decisions. Combine that with our professional investment management, and you’ll understand what peace of mind is all about.
