A Glimpse into the Achievements of Igor Cornelsen

He is a Brazilian executive and many people know him as an investment manager. Over the years, Igor Cornelsen has worked for many local and multinational corporations. After spending decades when working at different firms, he decided to start his own investment company in 1995 to help other entrepreneurs to achieve their goals and full potential. The 62-years old businessman is an alumnus of the Federal University of Parana. At the time, very few people were admitted to the institution due to its strict admission guidelines.

After studying engineering for two years, he enrolled in an economics class at the same university due to his passion for business. After graduating from the University of Parana, Igor Cornelsen was hired by a financial institution called Multibanco as he was good in calculations. After working for four years at the bank, he was promoted to serve in its board of directors. In 1976, he was appointed as the new chief executive officer.

When Multibanco was acquired by another financial institution, Igor Cornelsen was hired by a Brazilian investment company that was known as Unibanco. He worked for the firm for seven years before moved to Libra Bank. He also worked as a director at Standard Chartered Merchant Bank. He attributes his career success to the skills he has acquired over the years. He urges other entrepreneurs to always seek reliable information when making business decisions rather than relying on the analysis of other people.

In one of his interviews, he revealed that he established an investment advisory firm due to the vast experience that he had acquired over the years at various organizations. He wakes up early in the morning and spends a significant amount of his time watching international news and analyzing the performance of various economies around the globe. According to him, this helps in developing a good portfolio.
