Early Start Into Investment Banking
Igor Cornelsen is a Brazilian investor who started out in engineering school and quickly switched over to economics. He started working at an investment bank after he finished college and never looked back. Igor quickly established himself in the investment banking world and moved up fast through the ranks. First he became a member of the board of directors after only 4 years of service, and then by year 6 he was the CEO of Multibanco. After Bank of America acquired Mulitbanco, Igor moved on Unibanco for about 7 years, taking advantage of the high inflation rate. He then spent some years working a couple London banks, where he was introduced to working with US dollars. He gained vast investment opportunities in these years. His last move is still his current one. He opened his own investment firm, offering the same services he gained experience working with at the London banks. He puts personal efforts into his firm by working there daily as an investment manager.
Success As An Investment Banker
One trend that really excites Igor Cornelsen is when he is one of the first to spot a market changing trend. What helps him with investments is the speed at which he gets information from Reuters. He doesn’t rely on other investors and analysts to produce an opinion. Advice he would give his younger self is to read instead of listening to other opinions. The key is to look to world as a whole as see how things will be affected. One strategy that has helped Igor grow his business is being the fastest to find out assets depreciated. One failure Igor had as an entrepreneur was closing all the commodities he was short. Instead he was supposed to sell the expensive stuff and keep the cheap the stuff. The only web service Igor really uses is Reuters. He likes them because they just report the news and there is not bias. One thing that Igor likes to live by is to not be influenced by other investors, analysts, or professors. He feels it is better to make up his own mind, reading the facts instead of opinions.
