John Schlifske

WASHINGTON (Sept. 27, 2011) – Northwestern Mutual Chairman and CEO John Schlifske, and Steve Forbes, chairman and editor in chief of Forbes Media, will speak to students at Howard University on Wednesday, Oct. 5 in the School of Business Auditorium as part of the nationwide tour titled, “Econo-ME: Redefining the Rules of Financial Security.”

The executives will present their perspectives on the economy, the markets, and how individuals and business owners must redefine the rules of financial security during market volatility. As part of an ongoing partnership, Northwestern Mutual – a leading financial security company – and Forbes, have joined together to visit cities throughout the country to host similar discussions. This will be their first time presenting at a university. Howard students, faculty and staff are invited to attend. To RSVP visit

“Given today’s volatile economy, financial security is no longer about just growing and managing assets. Rather, it means developing and sticking with a holistic financial plan that includes managing risks, and increasing and protecting assets over time,” said Schlifske. “I look forward to visiting Howard University, and encourage all students and faculty to join me and economic thought leader Steve Forbes at the event.”

Students facing uncertain job prospects as they enter their careers must make financial decisions based on their short- and long-term goals. This includes developing a plan A and B, and sticking with it. That plan should include ways to build assets, manage risks, and increase and protect those assets. Additionally, students are encouraged to have open discussions with their parents and other trusted friends and family members about their finances.
