What our financial
advisors or representatives
have to say

Northwestern Mutual gave me the opportunity to be a business owner. I could control my destiny. It was intriguing and terrifying, but it was my time to say, yes. Now, I’ve created a better life for myself, my family, and I’m bettering the lives of my clients, too. Matt H. Financial Advisor Latham NY At 14-years-oId I helped grow tomatoes on a farm. Now, I help clients grow confident about their money with financial planning. I strive to be a leader for women, and I’m not afraid to share my personal experiences. Finances can be emotional, but they’re also relatable. Braelin T. Wealth Management Advisor Albany NY Working for a bank gave me no sense of accomplishment or meaning.
