Sandra Malamed

Portfolio Analyst (2016-2024)

Sandra joined L&S Advisors in 2016 and worked closely with her husband Ken Malamed until her passing in 2024.

In 1985, Sandra and Ken founded Financial Management Advisors, LLC, which was eventually acquired. Later, she worked at First Western Capital Management Company, where she served as Senior Vice President and as an equity analyst.

Sandra was also a historian and author of The Jews of Early America: A Chronicle of Good Taste and Good Deeds and The Return to Judaism: Descendants from the Inquisition Discovering Their Jewish Roots. She had lectured throughout the United States and abroad at various historical societies and museums and had been a scholar in residence for many private organizations. She had also served as visiting curator at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles and the American Jewish Historical Society in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Sandra held a B.A. in English and performed graduate work at UCLA and the Peabody Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.

On the personal side

Sandra was happily married to her husband and business partner, Ken, for over fifty years.  Her passing in 2024 left a huge hole in the L&S family.  Her wit and fierce compassion for what was right were integral parts of L&S and the Investment Committee on which she served.  Her L&S family will miss her dearly.
