Monetta Financial Services
Monetta Financial Services, Inc. is a boutique Registered Investment Advisor managing two no-load mutual funds. The Founder, Robert S. Bacarella, began managing a growth portfolio for a Fortune 500 company pension plan in the mid-70s. In 1979, Mr. Bacarella started an investment club that eventually grew into an investment partnership in the early eighties. In 1984, the partnership transformed into Monetta Financial Services, Inc.
In 1986, the flagship Monetta Fund was launched, which emphasized a growth-oriented investment philosophy.
In March of 1992, Mr. Bacarella was featured on the cover of Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine, highlighting his sell discipline and growth investment philosophy.
In 2006, the Monetta Core Growth Fund (formerly the Monetta Young Investor Fund) was launched, combining a passive/active investment approach. The passive portion of the Fund seeks to minimize performance uncertainty relative to the market, while the active portion emphasizes large-capitalization growth stocks that offer a high degree of earnings sustainability and growth.
In 2008, the founder’s son, Robert J. Bacarella, joined the firm. The father/son team now co-manages the Monetta Fund and the Monetta Core Growth Fund.
