I’m Tom Rossi, Wealth Management Advisor with Northwestern Mutual Chicago.

When I began growing my practice in 1998, I made a commitment to myself and my clients to act with integrity and transparency, to understand what makes each client’s story unique, and to make recommendations driven by their needs and priorities. That commitment means you can rely on me, and my team, to advise you according to your agenda, not ours. You can count on us to strike a balance between advising and listening—and the real benefit is realized when you finally find yourself on the path to achieving your objectives.

Whether you’re in need of individual or business financial planning, life insurance or wealth management, our team offers a full complement of professional certifications, years of experience and industry-leading Northwestern Mutual products. We’ve been consistently recognized for growth and excellence as a team, including Million Dollar Round Table and NM Forum membership.  While that recognition is welcomed, our greatest achievement is our high level of client satisfaction and the deep, lasting relationships we have established. These relationships are paramount to our 100% referral based practice.

We look forward to hearing from you.  We will take great care of you!
