Mission Statement

The Mission of Stephen Guinan and Northwestern Mutual - Eastern Pennsylvania is focused on distinguishing ourselves by a set of core values.  We strive to Enrich Lives, Impact Communities, and Build Legacies with:






Collective Responsibility


As you interact with the people in our firm, I believe that you will feel and sense that we are Different, New, and Attractive. When people experience our office they almost always tell us we have something very special and unique here.

I’d like to describe to you what I believe makes up our D.N.A.

Our people:

As talented professionals and leaders, we are motivated to enrich lives, impact communities and build legacies. We are dedicated to challenging and inspiring everyone on our teams to grow and to unleash their full potential. As entrepreneurs, we begin our journey by developing a deep understanding of who we are, and who we want to become.

Our values:

Caring: An investment of kindness and empathy in others, cultivating an environment of mutual respect, in and outside of the office.
Courage: A commitment to strength in the face of fear, doing the right thing, and leading by example.
Communication: An intentional, timely, honest and respectful dissemination of information.
Collective Responsibility: A group aligned towards a common goal, providing the gift of high expectations, while achieving success, together.

Our work:

We believe our financial planning process with clients represents some of the most important work anyone can do. People look to us for guidance in developing a plan to meet their financial goals. Our planning process becomes the GPS for their lives. It is designed to make the most of their money, no matter how much they have, so they can balance the life they want now and later. It is designed to help them live life differently because tomorrow is important, but life is happening now.
