On December 31, Israel Bonds closed the books on a year which saw the organization surpass $1.1 billion in U.S. sales for the second consecutive year. At one time, exceeding $1 billion was unthinkable. Now it is the new normal, a goal the Bonds organization will strive to achieve every single year.
As we begin a new year, although Israel faces great challenges, its potential remains unlimited.
Israel is a nation that continues to create and innovate, resulting in developments in science and technology that benefit the world. Additionally, Israel is consistently among the first to assist other countries in times of crisis. For example, UNICEF recently reported that Israel has made the world’s largest per-capita contribution to halt the spread of Ebola in West Africa. Moreover, Israel is a leader in sustainability, with advances in green technology that are being studied around the globe.
Often overlooked is the fact that Israel has also built one of the world’s most resilient economies. For a small country like Israel, which has no real export markets in its region and is always in a state of heightened military preparedness, this is a considerable accomplishment.
So far all these reasons, I encourage you to begin 2015 with an investment in Israel bonds. Doing so will make you a stakeholder in Israel’s economy, and a proud partner with a strong, forward-looking nation.
Thank you for your support.
