Igor Cornelsen is a Brazilian investment banker and advisor who is successfully running his own firm. He joined the university to study engineering but after two years he began to study economics at the same university.
Upon graduation, Mr. Cornelsen went on to work at an investment bank. He climbed up the ranks in the investment sector and he eventually ended up in Rio working as an investment banker. By 1974 he received a promotion to the board of directors of Multibanco and two years later he became the CEO of Multibanco.
However, in 1978 Multibanco became the property of the Bank of America and Igor Cornelsen was left to look for a job elsewhere. He landed a job at Unibanco, one of the most successful investment companies in Brazil where he stayed until 1985. Igor then started to work for Libra Bank PLC.
This marked an important step in his career as for once he would get his salary in US Dollars, creating a whole new set of opportunities in his career. As his successes grew here, he moved to the Standard Chartered Merchant bank, where he was a member of the board and also as a representative of Brazil. For the next seven years, he successful served as a board member.
In 1995, Igor Cornelsen left the bank to open his own investment firm, which majored in the same services he had been providing for the banks he had been previously working for.
He states that his business idea was as a consequence of his former experience working for previous employers.
His main business tip is that he is not influenced by others opinions but prefers to make up his mind using facts and not opinions. This is why he believes in Reuters news as a productive and reliable service because they only report the facts and have no bias.
He insists that reading widely and learning how news will affect the market is a key part of his business success. He encourages young people, in particular, to learn to look at the world as whole instead of as small pieces.
