Market Moments (with the Marvins)

Market Moments with the Marvins is hosted by Carl Marvin. He is a young professional, new to the investing world, and just joined his family’s multigenerational global investing firm. Each episode, he will be joined by a Portfolio Manager at Marvin & Palmer for an insightful conversation on all things investing. 

Carl is thrilled and fortunate to learn from mentors who are not just incredible investors but also his grandfather, uncle, and dad.  They will walk him through moments in their decades-long investing career by taking a holistic approach which will include market fundamentals, professional experience, public sentiment, and personal anecdotes. We hope our listeners will benefit from a first-hand account of market history. 

Marvin & Palmer has one of the longest records of global equity investing, and we believe that understanding the past makes us better at identifying patterns in today’s markets. We are excited to share our expertise with others as we collectively strive to better understand the markets and world we are living in today.

Join Carl on his journey of learning the ins & outs of the investing world while also learning more about his own family.
