Igor Cornelsen’s journey began on October 4th, 1947, the day he was born. After graduating from high school he decided to study engineering and so he attended the only engineering school in his region of Brazil, the Federal University of Parana. While he became very skilled at using a slide rule, a very important engineering tool at the time, he made the decision that he’d rather be an economist and so in after his second year of college education he switched majors.
After he graduated in 1970 he found a job at an investment bank in the States of Parana and Santa Catarina. He says that his skills in engineering, especially the slide rule, helped in his job at this firm because they enabled him to figure out compound interest rates at a fast clip. At that time very few people had access to calculators, let alone computers, so these skills helped him advance his career. Read more on resumonk.com about Igor Cornelsen.
Igor Cornelsen was successful enough at his job that he was able to find a position in the financial industry in Rio de Janiero. He started out as an investment banker and after having just graduated from college four years earlier he found himself on the board of directors for a large bank, Multibanco. Two years after that he was elected as the chief executive officer of this bank.
A few years later Multibanco was purchased by the American banking giant Bank of America. Igor Cornelsen decided to leave at this time and joined another banking firm, Unibanco. He stayed with this bank for seven years before moving to one that was a London Merchant Bank, Libra Bank PLC. At this bank it was the first time in his career that he was paid in American dollars rather than Brazilian money. A consequence of this was that he could do much more personal investing with his money.
Over the years, Igor Cornelsen became an entrepreneur who had his own investment firm. He continues to operate to this day as an entrepreneur and as a successful investment manager for many people who are of high net worth. Learn more:https://ideamensch.com/igor-cornelsen/
