For many years Igor Cornelsen was an investment banker in Brazil. He is a graduate of the Federal University of Parana where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. After graduating in 1970 he found his first job at a nearby investment bank. Before long he was working in Rio de Janiero and just four years after graduating from college he was named to Multibanco’s board of directors.
Igor Cornelsen says his biggest opporunity came in 1978 when he was hired by Libra Bank PLC. This company was a London Merchant Bank. Because of this he says he received his paycheck in American dollars rather than Brazilian real. He says that due to this he could invest in North America, Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. He was making a lot of money through investing and was on the board of directors for Standard Chartered Merchant Bank for several years. Read the article at frenchtribune.com to know more.
In 1995, he decided to go into business for himself. He opened his first investment company and offered his client’s a way to invest their money globally. He retired a few years ago, although he does own and operate Bainbridge Investments Inc. which is based in the Bahamas. Otherwise he splits his time between his native country and the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area.
Igor Cornelsen says that when he is staying in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he gets up very early. He does this because that is when European markets open and that is where he has invested quite a bit of his money. He peruses international news and studies current market conditions and trends. Depending on why he sees going on he will adjust his portfolio. He says he also still attends meetings from time to time and he also enjoys meeting up with his friends.
As for what new sources he relies upon for his information, he says that he uses Reuters directly. Unlike other outlets Reuters doesn’t have any biases, he says, and instead just deliver the news. He doesn’t look to analysis put together by other investors or so-called financial analysts because he considers all of that a waste of his time. Check: https://www.resume.com/igorcornelsen
