Nate Kruse

Financial Advisor


Nate joined the Northwestern Mutual internship program in 2009 while a junior at UNL pursuing an Agricultural Economics degree.  After graduating, he went full time as a financial representative with Northwestern Mutual. Shortly after going full time he received the opportunity to assume a leadership role and ran the internship program where he enjoyed teaching and mentoring young representatives just as much as helping his own clients achieve their financial goals.  Today he still spends time coaching the under 5 year representatives as the firm’s Growth & Development Director.  Nate has passed the Life and Health, Series 6, Series 63, Series 7, and Series 65 exams.  Since joining Northwestern Mutual he has grown from a single entrepreneur to a team of five, which includes his business partner, Nate Elias, and their dedicated team.  Nate is studying for his CFP designation with plans for having that completed by the end of 2017 near the same time his CHFC and CLU will be completed.

It is important to Nate and the team to invest in people and to continue to improve through accreditation so that they can serve their clients’ needs to the best of their abilities, especially in the most complex situations in this dynamic and ever changing world.  Nate cares about making an impact in the lives of those who trust him to help them reach their goals.  Nate and the team specialize in the needs of medical professionals, business owners, and others who need specialized financial planning.  Nate also prides himself in remaining close to the values that he learned growing up in a small-town farming community. Nate believes his background and listening skills brings that unique perspective into every client interaction.
