Jeffrey C. Todd, ChFC®, CLU®, RICP®
Wealth Management Advisor

Todd & Gaines Integrated Wealth Planning


As of 8/2017, Jeff and his team alone are responsible for placing over $1,000,000,000 of inforce life insurance death benefit to protect families and businesses. That's more than anyone in the Kentucky and Southern Indiana network office of Northwestern Mutual.

Calling oneself a professional doesn't really make one a professional. As a Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Advisor, professionalism is defined not only by the measure of one's experience, education and accreditation, but by one's character and professional standard of practice in supporting clients as a trusted financial expert.

Through personal commitment, professional associations, accreditations and continuing education, I have worked hard to establish a reputation as a respected professional and to gain the trust of clients. Please take a moment to review my experiences and accomplishments.
