Welcome to the story of The Quiet Company Milestones in the history of Northwestern Mutual
The year is 1857, and the "frontier" state of Wisconsin is a mere nine years old. It is here that an idea is born, for a life insurance company that will become known for safety, stability and performance during life's most difficult times.

That idea has grown to become one of the nation's largest and one of the world's most admired companies in its field.* Today Northwestern Mutual along with its subsidiaries and affiliates provide access to a range of insurance products, investment products and advisory services to address client needs for financial security and protection, capital accumulation, estate preservation and asset distribution.
