A plan for the future was something that both Paul and Candy were raised to value. When Paul and Candy were medical residents, the couple wanted to start their lives together on the right financial foot. The couple saw the value of financial planning with Northwestern Mutual early in their professional careers and began building a foundation for their life together. Years later, the Shah’s family expanded and they started their own medical practice. Their needs changed and so did their financial goals.

“Northwestern Mutual worked with us to put a plan in place that suits our lives,” said Paul. “As our life changes, so does our financial plan – but at every stage it reflects our beliefs, priorities and the vision for our children’s lives.”

“The Shahs, like many Northwestern Mutual clients, can be certain that their changing life and shifting priorities, will be met halfway with the reliable, strategic counsel and services from their partners at Northwestern Mutual,” said David Simbro, vice president of life products, Northwestern Mutual.”

Videos in the Northwestern Mutual Client Stories series share the approaches and success stories of individuals whose financial representatives have helped develop a plan based on clients’ goals to help achieve their life ambitions. A new video will appear each month in 2011 on the company’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

From starting a small business to meeting retirement goals, or by simply taking car of loved ones, the Client Stories series illustrates the importance of comprehensive holistic planning, and how solutions like permanent life insurance can help create financial security for today and tomorrow.
