Life never stands still.  It evolves, changes direction, and leads to new possibilities.  That means your approach to financial security cannot be static; your approach should change as your needs and goals change. 

By working together, we can help you identify your financial goals and objectives that will allow you to prepare for the future and help protect you if life takes an unexpected turn. 

Being a Financial Representative with Northwestern Mutual allows me to explore insurance areas such as life, disability, health long-term care and annuities both on an individual basis and from a business prospective.  My position also affords me the opportunity to work with investments which could benefit your needs.  Our ten-point investment philosophy is to:

  • Solve risk-based needs
  • Seek expert guidance to develop long-term investment strategy
  • Create a strategy consistent with your risk tolerance, time horizon and goal
  • Determine a diversification strategy using asset allocations
  • Use professionally created quality investment portfolios designed to match your asset allocation strategy
  • Use rebalancing to remove emotion from decision making
  • Manage the impact of taxes and inflation
  • Evaluate the asset allocation relative to benchmarks and long-term goals
  • Resist the temptation to change your strategy during up or down market movements
  • Start early, invest regulary, and dollar cost average

Keeping pace with life's changes is important.  Let me help you achieve a secure financial future.
