When one thinks of the world’s leading investment specialists, one usually pictures a financial leader spending their time in an office on Wall Street or in one of the world’s leading capitals. Not Igor Cornelsen, the Brazilian investment specialist spends his time between the golf courses of Florida and the beaches of his home nation as he enjoys his retirement. Despite his changing attitude to work, Cornelsen remains committed to delivering the best possible results to the investors who follow his successful approach to long-term investing.
One of the leading bankers in the history of the Brazilian economy, Igor Cornelsen decided to retire after a long career which brought him undoubted success across various areas of the financial sector. The career of Cornelsen began in earnest in 1970 following the decision of the banker to give up his studies as an engineer and move towards the financial sector when he began working at a bank. Just a few years later, the investment specialist moved into the boardroom of the bank and would find himself as the CEO just two years later.
One of the aspects of his financial career that sets Igor Cornelsen apart is the fact he is willing to search for new markets and different areas of investment to seek out for his own financial future and that of his clients. Now the head of Bainbridge Investments, Cornelsen believes too few brokers are willing to look outside the U.S. and established markets in Asia and Europe to find new areas of financial success for the future. There is much to admire in the way the investment specialist achieves success and spends his time reaching for new goals including the use of long-term investment strategies. As the head of numerous banks and financial institutions across Brazil, Cornelsen established his personal strategy for investing which he feels remains a viable option for all in the 21st-century.
