Eric Burns

Financial Advisor



Eric Burns has spent 25 years building relationships and expertise in the world of financial services.

Eric Burns' mission as a Northwestern Mutual Financial Advisor is to give perspective on today and help identify your future financial goals. Along with a Network of Specialists, he can provide innovative solutions using world-class insurance services and internationally recognized investment products. Through this, he develops enduring relationships with his clients.

Over a lifetime, most people will experience many different financial needs and circumstances that can be summarized into three stages: risk management, wealth accumulation, and wealth preservation and distribution.

Risk Management: The foundation of the financial pyramid, you protect that which you can least afford to lose—your earning power.

Wealth Accumulation: With that foundation firmly in place, you accumulate wealth in a tax-efficient manner for specific goals such as your children's education, retirement funding, or a future financial need.

Wealth Preservation and Distribution: Success in the wealth accumulation area creates the need to preserve and distribute that which you have worked so hard to accumulate.

Life's complexities leave little room for "standard" approaches, so Eric Burns uses a four-step approach in working with clients:

-     Get to know clients
-     Analyze Needs
-     Identify Solutions
-     Keep in Touch

Eric relies not only on his own experience and expertise, but also on the knowledge and strength of a team of professionals available through the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. Together, they can provide the guidance clients need to start down the path to financial security.
