COUNTRY Chief Financial Officer Discusses Current Market Volatility

September 24, 2008

Stock market volatility and failure of major investment banks have caused many people to question their family’s financial security. Dave Magers, COUNTRY Financial Chief Financial Officer, talks about the situation and the continuing strength of COUNTRY Financial.

“First and foremost, COUNTRY Financial is financially strong. Since 1925, COUNTRY has focused on the long-term financial growth of our organization. We have avoided major difficulties some companies are experiencing in the market by investing conservatively.

“No investment portfolio can be completely insulated from the market volatility of late. That’s where our strategy of conservative investment serves us well, minimizing the impact to a level much less than most other institutional investors.

“In addition, our strong capital position provides us with the ability to weather this and other economic storms.

“The impact of Wall Street can be felt across the country. We understand that times like these make many people feel less financially secure than normal.

“We stand ready to put our 80 years of experience and financial strength to work for you. If you don’t yet have a tangible financial security plan or you want to review the one you have, we encourage you to contact the COUNTRY Financial representative in your area.”
