Local Network . . . Expert Guidance

Leading With Confidence

With a solid foundation of more than 140 years, the Chicago office of Northwestern Mutual has been building lifelong relationships with clients and helping them create and carry out their financial security plans. The McTigue Financial Group  representatives provide comprehensive financial planning to meet a variety of personal and business needs, including asset and income protection; investment and advisory services; trust services; education funding; retirement solutions; estate planning; and employee and executive benefits.

The local network office, led by Managing Partner John W. McTigue since 1995, is at the forefront of Northwestern Mutual network offices nationwide.  A guiding principle of the firm – for both its financial representatives and staff – is a commitment to personal and professional growth and a belief that you achieve greater success when supported by systems of accountability and a culture of high expectations.

Northwestern Mutual: McTigue- Crain's Top Places to Work in ChicagoOur dedication to providing extensive training and leadership development programs, mentoring opportunities, and the ability to achieve work life balance, all contributed to us being named for five consecutive years to Chicago’s Best Places to Work by Crain’s Chicago Business. In 2013, the firm was ranked #5.  Chicago’s Top 20 was based on the strength of the organization’s leadership, career development opportunities, compensation and benefits, and other day-to-day workplace issues.

We are also proud that for four consecutive years The McTigue Financial Group has been the recipient of the Northwestern Mutual Team Award.  This company award recognizes superior leadership in new financial representative recruiting, development and retention.
