Who We Are

Matthew Allen, Financial Advisor

Education and Experience

Matthew has been helping families, executives and medical professionals create financial security for over 10 years.  He began working with Northwestern Mutual as a college intern while attending Western Kentucky University.  


There is no question that Matthew is a family man.  The smile on this face as he speaks of his wife and daughters will give it away immediately. When he's not with his family, you'll find him spending times outdoors either hunting or golfing.
