Trust starts with financial strength



We're among 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.

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.
