Building on our History of Innovation and Excellence
Northwestern Mutual - Chicago in Oak Brook enjoys a rich heritage as a provider of financial planning services. Since 1872, when Northwestern Mutual opened our network office in Illinois, our growing firm has worked diligently to help people achieve their goals and dreams for financial growth and security.
We realize that individuals have wide-ranging financial needs. For many people, providing financial security for those they care about is a major concern. For some individuals, accumulating substantial wealth or preserving it, is a primary objective. Still others want to create an estate plan and fund it. Business owners may want to ensure that what they have built can pass smoothly from one generation to the next. Preparing for your financial future in any of these situations can be complex. It is important to have the help of highly trained and experienced professionals.
Under the leadership of Chad McQuade, JD, CLU®, Managing Director since 2016, our associates and staff continue to set a standard of excellence not only for Northwestern Mutual, but also the financial services industry.
