Igor Cornelsen is an investment professional who has accomplished a lot during his career. He was born in Brazil, and while many investors are bailing out on their investments in his home country, he was able to continue to earn a profit during its recent recession. When he was younger, he planned on becoming an engineer, and he studied at the Federal University of Parana where he first majored in engineering. After doing so for a couple of years, he made the decision to switch his field of study to economics. He later earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the school.
Igor Cornelsen then went to work with a bank in Brazil where he was able to use the skills he learned in college. He was eventually promoted to serve on the board of directors at the bank but moved on to new challenges after it was bought out by Bank of America. Cornelsen served with Unibanco after this and then went to work with London Merchant Bank during the mid 1980s. He later served on Unibanco’s board of directors before deciding to go into business on his own.
During the mid 1990s, Igor Cornelsen founded Bainbridge Investments Inc. Today, he continues to work with his investment company as its proprietor and also helps new investors to become better at making money. Instead of always investing in companies that are doing well, he has been able to turn a profit by investing in damaged stocks. He feels these are often undervalued and that they can be held onto until these kinds of companies are doing well again. Igor Cornelsen now spends most of his days in Florida or Sao Paulo. He enjoys playing golf and continues to keep up with his blog where he helps aspiring investors to become better at what they do.
