About the Norwegian Fjordhorse
About the Norwegian Fjordhorse

“The eyes should be
like the mountain lakes
on a midsummer evening,
big and bright.
A bold bearing of the neck
like a lad from the mountains
on his way to his beloved.
Well-defined withers like the
contours of the mountains
set against an evening sky.
The temperament
as lively as a waterfall in spring,
and still good-natured.”

"You can’t go wrong with an annuity"

With danger of market risk being a constant concern these days
and the banks continuing to pay interest below 1%,
fixed annuities can be very appealing to
people looking for consistency and safety with their money.
When doing a quick comparison
with what seems like a very lucrative stock market,
annuities seem to have a lackluster performance rate.
Remember the hare and the tortoise,
slow and steady wins the race.
Annuities are preferable to c.d.s with their better returns
and the big advantage of being tax deferrable.

Volatility exists at a tremendous level especially for older people.
An annuity offers one of the highest yields for those safe dollars.
Even for aggressive investors, a portion of money set aside
for these insurance products can offer an outstanding hedge.

Set up a meeting with your Sons of Norway
Financial Benefits Counselor

and see how our 120 years of experience can benefit you.
