Scher team meeting with a client

A Message from Michael Scher

I am committed to helping my clients obtain a feeling of financial security and I will explore all of your financial needs to make sure that your investment and insurance needs align.

I am extremely passionate about what I do and am persistent due to the strong belief I have in the Northwestern Mutual process and products. I believe the first step in addressing your financial needs is building a relationship based on trust; after all without trust what do we have?

My practice is ran with one core belief: Act in your client's best interest 100% of the time and you will have a client for life.



The Northwestern Mutual Watertown/Delafield district was able to raise over $10,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand at the 2017 Glow in the Dark Golf Outing! That will fund an entire month of research! A big thank you to everyone who came out to play, donated or sponsored this incredible event. We hope to see you all again on August 10th, 2018!
