Welcome to Northwestern Mutual - Sioux Falls

Managing Partner, Chris Schenkel believes that insuring human life value is the first step towards achieving a solid financial strategy and the key advantage of Northwestern Mutual-Sioux Falls network representatives is the deep relationships formed when working with clients.  Chris and his group of professionals deliver excellence built upon a solid understanding of each client's goals and dreams. 
















Expert Guidance

We realize that individuals have wide-ranging financial needs. For many, providing financial security for those they care about is a major concern. For some individuals, accumulating substantial wealth or preserving it, is a primary goal. 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.


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's national philanthropic program to combat childhood cancer. 

Individually, whether we serve on a board, hold clothing drives or hold lemonade stands, we are passionate about all of our philanthropic activities
