Leading With Confidence

Since 1992 Northwestern Mutual’s McTigue Financial Group in Oak Brook has worked diligently to help people achieve their goals and dreams for financial growth and security. Backed by the strength of Northwestern Mutual with a foundation of more than 155 years, we enjoy a rich heritage as a provider of financial planning services in the greater Chicago area.

Expert guidance

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

Industry Experience

Under the leadership of Corey D. McQuade, CLU®, Managing Director since 2006, our associates and staff at The McTigue Financial Group in Oak Brook continue to set a standard of excellence not only for Northwestern Mutual, but also for the financial services industry.  Our Financial Representatives, Advisors and Specialists are consistently regarded as being among the most highly qualified individuals in the business.  They bring to the table not only some of the industry’s leading products, but also a high level of professional expertise - - with the educational degrees and designations to prove it.


High performance

Our dedication to providing extensive training and leadership development programs, mentoring opportunities, and the ability to achieve work life balance, all contributed to us being named for six consecutive years to Chicago’s Best Places to Work by Crain’s Chicago Business. Chicago’s Top 10 is based on the strength of the organization’s leadership, career development opportunities, compensation and benefits, and other day-to-day workplace issues.

In 2013 the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce presented the district office with the Investing in People Award.  The award recognizes Northwestern Mutual’s McTigue Financial Group in Oak Brook for outstanding leadership in growing and developing its most important product - its people.

For six consecutive years The McTigue Financial Group has been the recipient of the Northwestern Mutual Team Award.  This company award recognizes superior leadership in new financial representative recruiting, development and retention.

We hold the network office market development award for 2015.  Achieving over $46 billion of life insurance in force and positively impacting close to 70,000 lives does not happen without a dedicated team.

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 Foundation’s national philanthropic program to combat childhood cancer.

Our vision is simple:  the world without childhood cancer.  Our mission is to support children and their families facing the daily struggles of this disease and help accelerate the cure to childhood cancers.

In July 2015, we are participating in the annual Northwestern Mutual Race for Research to raise needed funds for childhood cancer research.    Our financial representatives and staff will run or walk the 5K in Milwaukee as well as raise funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.  For every $50 raised we can fund one hour of research.  Click here to learn how you can help.

Individually, through financial support and volunteer activities our financial representatives and staff are furthering the mission of numerous nonprofit organizations. Our firm has earned 24 Northwestern Mutual Community Service Awards, more than any other network office.
