Born in Curitiba Brazil, in 1947, Igor Cornelsen went to the Federal University of Parana for engineering school originally. However, after a couple years of learning exactly how engineering works, Igor soon came to the conclusion that his true calling was more so in the realm of economics. So in the year 1970, at a time when intricate calculators were not seen as much as they are in today’s world, Igor Cornelsen and his engineering background truly came into play and allowed him to secure a position at an investment banking firm. Eventually security position at Multibanco, Igor eventually found his way to the board of directors after a couple of years with his engineering background. Then, two more years after that, in 1976 he became the CEO of Multibanco. Learn more about Igor at ireport.cnn
Eventually, all things come to an end and Igor Cornelsen had to leave Multibanco when it was bought out by Bank of America. So what he did was apply to Unibanco, which was one of the largest banks at the time in Brazil. Eventually in 1985 he moved everything out of his office and went to Libra Bank because Unibanco did not suit him perfectly. And then from Libra, he found his way to Standard Chartered Bank. Standard Chartered is one of the largest banks in Singapore and was actually created when the British colony took over the East and established ties over there. So, working at the Brazilian branch of Standard Chartered, it took a good seven years before he moved on and created his own investment firm.
Having all of this intense knowledge and experience in the investment world, we can only expect Igor Cornelsen to hold some light on his experiences. He states that over all these years, the most interesting side of the investment banking world is related to the changes in market direction and knowing this before other investors. Igor claims that a lot of his gains are actually from studying the trends of news and world markets, and politics from sources like Reuters. He really loves Reuters and prefers it to listening to the opinions of other investors.
