Mission Statement

The Northwestern Mutual Way

The ambition of Northwestern Mutual has been less to be large than to be safe; its aim is to rank first in benefits to policy owners rather than first in size.  Valuing quality above quantity has made Northwestern Mutual preeminently the Policyowners’ Company.

Our Mission

We develop distinguished careers to impact our clients and our communities

Our Vision

We deliver financial security aligned with Northwestern Mutual's philosophy of holistic planning. We believe this philosophy best serves our clients' needs and gives us a competitive advantage;

We measure success through each individual's productivity as well as our collective impact in our abundant and collaborative culture through a high level of joint work with our team of specialists;

Our Culture of excellence is exemplified by our associates being recognized as leaders in the company, both regionally and nationally, and through our unparalleled network office services to support our financial representatives through state of the art facilities, marketing, training, and ongoing business consultation; and 

We collectively build an organization that fosters a continual environment of growth. A testament to this commitment is each individual's desire to leave a legacy by introducing at least one new associate to our network office.


Northwestern Mutual financial representatives have the opportunity to determine their own financial futures while making an impact on others.
