Retirement Redefined Acres of Diamonds Investments Surprises


Megent Financial is an independent retirement and financial services firm in the greater Chicago area with industry roots dating back to 1918. Our approach is unique in our industry, as our clients are typically NOT high net worth individuals, executives and business owners, but rather the Working Men and Women of Organized Labor. As a fully independent firm, we are impartial and are able to provide unbiased financial advice while making the most suitable recommendations for our clients, custom-fit to their individual situations, needs and desires – situations, needs and desires which are nothing like those of the average, non-Labor investor.

The experience we bring to the aspect of defined benefit and defined contribution pension plans as well as retiree health and welfare benefits separates us. We have the knowledge and experience required to objectively, diligently and holistically navigate our type of client through all of the financial phases of life.
