Northwestern Mutual’s Ontario Office to Focus on Underserved Groups

Northwestern Mutual recently opened a new office in Ontario at 3633 Inland Empire Blvd. The new office led by managing director Amber Romo was developed through a collaboration with the Northwestern Mutual distribution growth ventures team, a group focused on serving underpenetrated markets and competitive recruitment.

The Ontario office will be comprised of a team of six financial professionals, all of whom live in Ontario or the surrounding area.

“Our recruiting efforts will focus on diverse communities in Ontario, with an emphasis on area colleges and universities,” said Romo.  

The Ontario office will offer financial planning services to the city’s underserved Hispanic and Asian communities. In addition, the office will identify opportunities for financial education and support of locally owned businesses.

 “This expansion gives us the opportunity to build meaningful new relationships, offer career opportunities and meet a need for financial services in an underserved community,” said Matt Plocher, managing partner, Northwestern Mutual.
