Steve Forbes and John Schlifske on
"The Power of a Game Plan”

Northwestern Mutual hosted a speaker series with Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media and John Schlifske, Northwestern Mutual chairman and CEO. As part of an ongoing partnership, Northwestern Mutual and Forbes have spoken about the economy to more than 21,000 people in more than 30 cities since 2010. Approximately 500 people attended the event in St. Louis, where Steve and John shared their perspectives on the economy, the financial markets, and the importance of having a sound financial game plan in place, regardless of market conditions. Key insights presented at the events were:
  • Getting to retirement is no longer the end goal - it is a new starting point. Schlifske and Forbes contend that today's economy coupled with increased life expectancy means there is an increased risk for individuals to deplete their assets too soon. A well-rounded plan is essential to help maintain financial security for life.
  • It is unlikely that individuals can solely invest their way to prosperity. Rather, Schlifske and Forbes believe in practicing proven financial principles, such as setting a budget, saving in addition to investing, and dollar-cost averaging for the long-term.
  • There are plans that individuals and business owners can put into place now to help ensure long-term security. Schlifske and Forbes encourage Americans to not let debates keep them from addressing their short- and long-term financial needs.
