Redesigned Space Offers Top-Notch Client Experience

Client experience and advisor efficiency are at the forefront of our fresh office redesign, which resulted from several months of planning a new way to engage our clients and staff in a sleek and modern environment. Northwestern Mutual Irvine has transformed the way work happens by making our office bright, welcoming, and collaborative.

Through adoption of the free-addressing model, in which all office space is unassigned, advisors and teams have workplace flexibility to occupy spaces of various sizes, configurations, and functions, including focus rooms with standing desks, private offices, and huddle rooms. The new space also features an espressobar, a client experience center, and high-tech conference rooms.






Expert Guidance

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 help 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.

Community Focus

One of the most rewarding aspects of our workplace is our commitment to bettering the lives of others. With that in mind, we have put our collective efforts behind Northwestern Mutual Foundation’s national philanthropic program  to combat childhood cancer. Our vision is simple: a world without childhood cancer. Our mission is to support children and their families facing the daily struggles of this disease and help accelerate the cure to childhood cancers.

Every year, members of our organization impact the fight against childhood cancer by raising funds for life-saving research during the “Annual Race for Research” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since 2013, we have raised over $20,000 through this race. The donation, which was made to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, has funded over 400 hours of research. Click here to learn how you can help.

Individually, whether we serve on a board, as a coach, or as a tutor, we are passionate about our philanthropic activities. In 2016, we became been proud recipients of Northwestern Mutual’s Regional Childhood Cancer Impact Award, an honor bestowed upon on us on both the National and Regional levels in the past.
