Ray Henderson, CLU®, ChFC®, CASL®, RICP®
Wealth Management Advisor

Henderson Financial Group



Ray Henderson, CLU®, ChFC®, CASL®, RICP® has been in the financial services industry for over 18 years, entering the field in banking and property & casualty insurance before moving into this environment of creating and growing personal client relationships.

Ray decided to establish and grow a practice in partnership with Northwestern Mutual for a number of reasons. Ray was greatly impressed by Northwestern Mutual's values, financial ratings, and mutual style of governance (the clients own the company instead of shareholders who may not be clients owning the company).

After being at Northwestern Mutual for several years, and seeing the ins and outs of the financial services industry, Ray is even more convinced that he made the right decision both professionally, and for his clients.

Northwestern Mutual is truly committed to doing what's best for the client, every time.
