Kenny Welcome earned a Bachelor of Science in business management and marketing from Tulane’s A. B. Freeman School of Business. While an undergraduate, Welcome played Green Wave football as a defensive tackle, was named an Academic All-American, and even sang the National Anthem before a game during his senior year.
In the years since graduating from Tulane, Welcome has forged a successful career in the financial service industry. Taking everything he learned while working at some of the top firms on Wall Street, the New Orleanian just launched his own private investment firm, KJW Capital.
A former vice president and senior investment advisor at JP Morgan Private Bank, Welcome was also the co-founder of JPM’s Diverse Wealth Initiative, which focused on enhancing generational wealth within Black communities. KJW Capital has also launched a private investment fund focused on investing in Louisiana, Texas and the Southwestern region.
Welcome still maintains Tulanian pride and spirit.
