Ellen E Steele Allare, CLU®, ChFC®

Financial Representative

For a quarter-century, Ellen Steele Allare has provided expert assistance to executives and business owners seeking to keep businesses and estates intact for future generations, achieve financial security, retain key employees and transfer the risks of living too long, premature death or becoming unexpectedly disabled.

Ellen initiates each client relationship with a discussion of client aspirations and goals. All relevant facts are discovered and analyzed. Important questions are asked and answered. Where do I stand currently relative to my retirement objectives? How do I protect my assets against lawsuits, estate and income taxes, and illness? Am I on the right track or am I missing something important in my attempt to achieve financial security.

Once the important questions have been asked and answered, appropriate steps are not only implemented but also reviewed on an ongoing basis. Circumstances change over time. Ellen reviews each client's circumstance and provides solutions on an ongoing basis. Achieving and maintaining financial security is a marathon, not a sprint.

Ellen Steele Allare represents the Northwestern Mutual.  She works closely with clients and their other advisors in developing financial accumulation, security and transition solutions. Ellen has built a practice that enjoys an excellent reputation among clients and professional advisors.

Northwestern Mutual has been helping clients achieve financial security for nearly 160 years. Look at some of the reasons for its success:
