Our Commitment to Financial Strength

Trust starts with financial strength

Trust is the foundation of all successful financial relationships. You need the confidence that we know what we're doing, will honor our commitments, and make you – our client – our highest priority. To do all this all the time — without cutting corners or being distracted by financial pressures — means having the resources that only come with financial strength.

We're established.

You should expect that the company you trust to manage your finances can manage its own. The FORTUNE 500 ranking is among the most recognized measure of financial success. Being #97 in 2017 affirms that Northwestern Mutual is among America's premier companies.

In 2017, Northwestern Mutual was once again named one of the "World's Most Admired Companies" in its industry according to FORTUNE Magazine's annual survey. We secured the number one ranking for "Quality of Products and Services" and ranked highly in "Financial Soundness," "Long-Term Investment," "Use of Corporate Assets" and "Quality of Management."

We're the strongest.

Financial strength isn't something you claim; it's established by hard numbers. Our financial statements show that we maintain exceptional financial health. But don't just take our word for it. Northwestern Mutual has earned the highest financial strength rating awarded to any U.S. life insurer by all the major ratings agencies.

Backing our strength — Northwestern Mutual's investment portfolio

Northwestern Mutual invests the majority of its assets through the General Account, the company's $200 billion+ portfolio. The portfolio has grown consistently year after year. By buying life insurance, disability insurance and deferred annuities, clients immediately gain the opportunity to share in the company's favorable results.

We put clients first.

"We succeed when you succeed." For more than 160 years, we've been an industry leader by holding true to this simple principle. By managing our business effectively and acting in the best long-term interest of our clients, we're able to offer excellent product value and service for a lifetime of financial security.
