Dewey Engesma, ChFC®

Your Feedback is Important to The American College…

The Northwestern Mutual Granum Center for Financial Security recently conducted a survey as part of their Flashpoint: Financial Principles for Millenials series and a lucky participant was rewarded for their time. Congratulations to Dewey Engelsma, ChFC®, a financial advisor from Kentwood, Michigan, who was selected among the 400+ advisors as the winner of an ipad mini®! When asked why he took the time to participate in our research, Dewey shared: "I found the topic of the survey to be very compelling. Ensuring that the ratios and benchmarks that we as financial services practitioners use, seem to be of the utmost importance – and I was glad to be of assistance!"

Watch for more articles, tools and resources on Financial Principles for Millenials coming to you from the Granum Center later this summer. You could be our next winner!
