About This Episode

Welcome to the first episode of The Empowered Investor. Today we’re introducing ourselves to you and sharing the foundational principles of the Empowered Investor. Join us on this inspiring journey, hosted by Keith Matthews and Marcelo Taboada.

Keith Matthews is the author of The Empowered Investor: A Guide to Building Better Portfolios, and a Partner and licensed Portfolio Manager at Tulett, Matthews & Associates (TMA). Keith left the institutional investment management industry in 1997 to work directly with private investors because he wanted to make a difference. He felt that he could have a positive impact on helping individuals create a successful investment experience.

Marcelo Taboada is an Associate at TMA and after finishing his studies, he decided that he wanted to work in a field that allowed him to help people and cultivate his intellectual curiosity.
