The Principal


President/Wealth Advisor

Maredin Wealth Advisors was founded by Marcelo Zinn in 2005, after being head Portfolio Manager at Juresa Ltda (Brazil). Mr. Zinn has been managing individual portfolios and funds for over 18 years and has an exemplary record. His love for research and analysis of securities and macro economic cycles, combined with his interest in crafting investment and planning strategies, is what helps differentiate Mr. Zinn's practice. 


Mr. Zinn graduated from the University of Miami (“The U”) with Deans List recognition.  He has lectured at the University of Miami and written for several investing websites including the Manual of Ideas and SeekingAlpha. He resides in beautiful Miami, FL with his wife and three children.


In addition to the analytical aspects, Mr. Zinn loves helping people.  Being able to help clients with their financial future is especially rewarding.  This is what has driven Mr. Zinn to increase his service offerings to people outside his family. 

In his spare time, when not with family and friends, Marcelo loves reading, watching and playing sports (futbol and football), playing music (mostly drums), watching films, and making BBQ (sounds better than it tastes).  Marcelo is really big on family and friends.  To him, it's the meaning of life and nothing is more important.
