Financial Advisor

In today's complex world, freedom comes in many forms.  It might be the ability to  pursue our hobbies, or  to enjoy our relationships.  However we define it, freedom involves time--and the ability to spend it they way we want to. Financial security is the ability to spend our time they we choose--and knowing that those we love and who depend on us have the same opportunity.  Working together, we can identify the financial goals and solutions to help provide the freedoms of financial security for you and your family.

My Mission

To bring passion, purpose, and partnership to those who care about the freedom of achieving financial security.

  • Passion - A powerful and contagious emotion that moves us to act on the most important aspects of our lives, and helps others to make their intentions  become reality.
  • Purpose - A reason for doing something.  The grounding belief in something long term, usually bigger than ourselves, that gives meaning to current decisions and activities.
  • Partnership - A collaboration toward a common vision or purpose.  A long term relationship of substance and depth, in which the participants can be counted on.  A relationship of value.

Race for Research

Dan Schiffman is proud to join Northwestern Mutual colleagues from around the country in raising money for childhood cancer research.

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S., but we can do something about it.
