Mission Statement

Our Firm Culture

Northwestern Mutual - Chicago's vision, mission, values and principles are the core of our unique corporate culture. Combined they define who we are and guide us in doing what’s right for our financial representatives and staff, our clients and our communities.

Our Vision

We aim to be the pre-eminent financial security firm by consistently focusing on one ambition: to have a meaningful impact on our financial professionals and staff, our clients and our communities that will create a legacy for future generations.

Our Mission

The purpose of Northwestern Mutual - Chicago is twofold; to attract and develop highly motivated individuals committed to building a financial services practice as well as to provide representatives with a network of services and specialists to assist their clients in achieving their financial goals.

Our Values

  • Accountability: Individuals thrive when supported to reach their maximum potential in a transparent, feedback-rich environment. It's the glue that ties commitment to results.
  • Impact: Using our unique skill sets and passion for making a difference in the lives of others and our surrounding communities.
  • Growth: People are living their most successful lives by taking on new challenges, always wanting to learn more and continuously developing themselves in an energized environment.

Our Principles

  • All individuals committed to personal and professional growth achieve greater success when supported by systems of accountability and a culture of high expectations.
  • The collective expertise and resources of the organization can provide greater access to specialists than an individual representative can access on his/her own.
  • We believe that protecting our clients’ income is the first step towards achieving a comprehensive financial plan and the key advantage of our representatives is the deep relationship formed when they challenge their clients with the critical issues concerning life, death, disability and retirement.
