James Benjamin Bell Jr, CLTC®

Financial Representative


I have been a financial advisor in the Northwestern Mutual Greater Milwaukee area since 2012. Prior to becoming an advisor, I was attending graduate school to become a professor of history when my father was diagnosed with a rare skin cancer. After sitting with a Northwestern Mutual Advisor to work out my father’s financial affairs, a deep desire to help individuals and families with financial planning was created.

Since becoming an advisor, I have been blessed to have won numerous awards and been a guest speaker at many events, businesses, schools, and organizations. Financial planning provides me with the opportunity daily to fulfil my personal passion of helping individuals, and businesses align their actions with their values.

I collaborate with a group selected group of advisors to address our client’s unique and/or speclized planning needs. Currently I reside in Shorewood, WI with my favorite 3 people in the world…my wife Tierra, daughter Alani, and son Ian.
