Wealth Management Advisor

Areas of Expertise

As a representative of the Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company, I am able to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Fee-Based Financial Planning
    As a fee-based advisor, I am compensated for the time and expertise put into designing and creating your personal financial plan. Under this fee structure, I have a responsibility to ensure your interests and goals are always put first.
  • Wealth Management
    You've earned your success and continue to excel in your personal and professional lives. Maintaining wealth becomes an issue as time constraints in daily life make it difficult to identify and develop strategies that align with your financial goals. I will partner with you to help you sustain and grow long-term wealth consistent with your goals and aspirations, taking into account other financial needs and your comfort with market risks.
  • Private Client Services
    Over a lifetime of hard work you have built up a successful business, career, or professional practice. Along the way you've acquired valuable assets that may include publicly-traded stocks and bonds, mutual funds, collectibles, real estate, and perhaps a business interest or securities issued from an employer or former employer. Investment management can be a challenge. I have access to dedicated account administrators and investment teams to help identify your goals and investment objectives. Working with us, you can be certain that the investment management strategy we recommend for you is custom-built for your unique situation, using a wide range of investment strategies.
  • Retirement Income Planning
    Becoming a retiree doesn't mean retirement planning ends. Spending your retirement assets can actually be more complex than building them. The investment and savings strategies you used to accumulate wealth may need to be adjusted as you prepare for and enter retirement. Together we can develop a plan to help you achieve financial security in retirement - through our unique strategy designed to preserve and continue to manage your wealth, protect against the risks that can affect your retirement years, and provide you with predictable and steady income for life.
  • Investment Strategies
    Without a coordinated investment strategy, it can be difficult to build an effective investment portfolio that helps meet your financial needs. As a Registered Representative of Northwestern Mutual Investment Services, LLC (NMIS), I can offer you access to a wide range of investment products and services. I will work with you to develop investment solutions aimed at meeting your financial objectives.
  • Life Insurance Planning
    Many people realize that they need life insurance. And, many people have opinions about what type of life insurance they prefer. I regularly help people determine how much life insurance they need and what types or combination of types of coverage are best suited to help them further their own objectives. A well constructed life insurance policy can be a valuable part of your overall financial security plan. I will help you look at this in the context of your overall financial security plan and help you determine what makes the most sense for your particular situation.
  • Long Term Care Planning
    After a lifetime of work and proper preparation, a secure retirement can be your reward. That security will only be as strong as your ability to stay healthy. Most people would agree that their most important asset is their health. That is why it's important to ensure that if you are ever faced with an extended illness, you will receive the kind of care you need. Together with our specialists, I'll assist you in determining your long-term care needs and design solutions tailored to your unique situation.
  • Special Needs Planning
    Planning for a dependent with special needs can be complicated. It is recommended that you work with a team of experts - including an attorney, a financial professional and a social service professional. As a key member to the special needs team, I provide solutions for families with special needs.
  • Estate Planning
    You work your whole life to build your estate. You should have control over what happens to it upon your death. Building a lasting legacy takes more than simply accumulating a large portfolio. You need a solution that remains flexible enough to allow you to maintain maximum control of your assets and enjoy them during your lifetime while you prepare for the efficient transfer of those assets after you die.
  • Employee and Executive Benefits Planning
    Employee benefits are an important part of the growth of your business. Benefits such as health insurance, pension plans, group life and disability income plans make up the compensation package that helps ensure continued employee satisfaction and well-being within your company. Designing an employee benefit approach can be a complicated, technical and time-consuming matter. Working with a specialist who offers access to comprehensive employee benefit services through local and independently owned companies, provides a number of advantages, including experienced professionals with access to top providers and a wealth of benefit choices tailored to meet your business' ever changing needs.
  • Disability Income Planning
    Disability income insurance protects one of your most valuable assets - your ability to earn an income. A disability could suspend or terminate your income for an extended period of time. It may force you to close your business. With my expertise in disability income planning, I am able to recommend disability income insurance products from Northwestern Mutual.
