Igor Cornelsen has worked in Brazil as a banker and investment manager for a good portion of his life. He was born in the Brazilian city of Curitiba in 1947 and studied at Federal University of Parana, where he focused on engineering. He changed his focus a bit later to economics and then went to work for an investment bank after je graduated.

Igor Cornelsen served with Multibanco for a couple of years before it was acquired by Bank of America. This prompted him to seek employment elsewhere, and Unibanco gladly hired him. He stayed with the bank for 7 years and then served with Libra Bank PLC. After serving with this bank for some time, he moved on to work with Stan Chat Merchant Bank, where he served on its board of director. After accruing plenty of experience in the banking industry, he decided to startup his own firm.

Igor Cornelsen likes to wake up early so he can keep his eye on the European markets as they open for the day. He also keeps up with the news from all over the world and studies various companies during his day. Cornelsen is always coming up with new ideas and has found that he has the ability to see new opportunities in different markets before most other people do.

Igor Cornelsen has been able to grow his firm because he can see where assets are going to go down in value before they do. He focuses a lot of his attention on reducing risk with his investments and has no problems with cutting out on any investment whenever he sees it is about to go belly up. He has suggested that people should start investing as soon as it is possible for them and that they should focus on, both, safe and risky investments, which will diversify their portfolio.
