Northwestern Mutual is taking active steps to grow its field force to keep pace with the growing demand for financial security guidance, products and services.

Managing Director, Eric Waggoner, is pursuing a Masters in Global Finance


In addition to his Master of Science in Mathematics, Eric has decided to pursue a Master of Science in Global Finance from two-renowned institutions, New York University and Hong Kong University. The program’s objective is to help participants learn about the latest developments and trends in the global financial markets. It will enable participants to take advantage of the transformation underway in the global market. The program offers a comprehensive range of topics including corporate finance, asset management, valuation, and more.  Eric will learn from senior professionals while studying alongside an internationally and culturally diverse class as a collective cohort – a rewarding experience. During the program, Eric will be expected to travel to Hong Kong, New York, and Shanghai to contribute by sharing his insight and experiences. While his periods of absence will be missed in the East Lansing office, we are excited for Eric to participate in a highly prestigious program.  

Community Involvement: 4th Quarter

The Waggoner Financial Group will spend the last quarter of the year gathering donation items for Haven House, an emergency housing shelter for families with children, and the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Both of these local non-profit organizations are currently in need of canned food, hygiene and cleaning supplies, baby food, and more. We are not a formal "drop-off" location, but our office will collect donation items until December 14th. If you happen to visit our office during this time and would like to participate, feel free to leave your items with the receptionist!

Not sure what to donate? Haven House is currently in need of hygiene and cleaning supplies: dish soap, body wash, shampoo & conditioner, laundry detergent, kleenex, and more. The Greater Lansing food bank has an "Items Most Needed" list on their website.

Thank you for your support.


Northwestern Mutual financial representatives have the opportunity to determine their own financial futures while making an impact on others.
