PRODUCT OFFERINGS AND SERVICES:

Mench Financial, Inc. provides investment advice to high worth individuals, retirement plans and institutions. Mench Financial, Inc. is recognized for its ability to provide competitive performance to a national clientele by creating portfolios designed to decrease volatility and preserve assets during down markets.The key to our success is an econometric investment process and the use of exchange traded funds to participate in major changes in market trends.  A composite of indicators triggers portfolio purchases and sales in a highly disciplined manner.  We believe 75% of our ability to outperform the market comes from this process of dynamic asset allocation.  During weekly Investment Policy Committee meetings current portfolio market, sector and industry allocations are determined.  These allocations allow us to attempt to decrease the volatility in a portfolio by pinpointing the markets, or sectors of a market, which we believe have the greatest potential for outperforming the general market.  In turn, assets are moved away from sectors which have a high probability of underperforming.  Once we have identified those industries, which are poised to do well in the coming economic environment, we use fundamental and correlation analysis, combined with broad diversification, to shift the risk/reward ratio in our client’s favor.
