Northwestern Mutual

We Believe in Milwaukee

Milwaukee's first significant building of the 21st century, The Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons will reflect the city that surrounds us and will be a beacon for our Northwestern Mutual family, Greater Milwaukee residents and visitors to our city.

We Believe in Milwaukee

We have always taken pride in calling Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin our home—and never more than now.

We believe it is a great time to live and work here. We’re backing that belief with new investments in our infrastructure, through the employees and financial representatives who serve our policyowners, and in the strategic philanthropic contributions we’re making to enhance education and help further strengthen Milwaukee and its neighborhoods.

We make these investments with an eye on the future of our company, our people, and our city. We hope you share our vision and optimism. And we thank you for your interest in Northwestern Mutual and its commitment to our community.
