‘Live life differently’ is the byword of Northwestern Mutual, which was founded in 1857 to help people achieve financial security and peace of mind through personalized plans that include both insurance and investments. Among its products and services are life insurance, disability insurance, long-term care, education funding and retirement solutions. “‘Live life differently’ means taking the time to identify your goals and develop customized strategies with our guidance, so you can live your life the way you want to,” says Tom McTigue, Financial Advisor of Northwestern Mutual Hawaii.

“It’s a comprehensive approach, and we take that responsibility seriously. We earn the trust of our clients; 96 percent* of them stay with us for more than 40 years.”

With 35 employees, the Hawaii group is part of Northwestern Mutual’s nationwide network of more than 330 offices. Financial representatives go the extra mile to ensure clients’ plans are complete, including introducing them to respected attorneys for estate planning.

“We want our representatives to be at the center of their clients’ financial lives,” McTigue says. “We keep abreast of their situation to ensure their financial plan changes along with their needs and desires.”

Northwestern Mutual provides competitive income potential, retirement contributions and opportunities to make a difference in the communities in which they live and work. In addition to sponsoring an annual scholarship for the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Shidler College of Business, the Hawaii group supports organizations such as the Waikiki Aquarium and the Make-A- Wish Foundation.

The company offers an internship program that’s open to full-time students attending four-year colleges and recruits year-round for representatives. “We’re looking for financial representatives with an entrepreneurial personality,” McTigue says. “That means self-starters who run their own practice with our assistance. Workdays are flexible, meaning they can be engaged parents, enjoy sports and hobbies, be actively involved in their community—and have a successful career.”
