Igor Cornelsen has managed money for institutional banks since 1971. He was born in Curitiba Brazil in 1947, and has parlayed his logical engineering brain and financial background into a long-lived career spanning multiple positions. Having graduated the Federal University of Parana, Igor Cornelsen first started out his professional life at Multibanco Bank. Two years after joining, he had become a member of the board of directors, and two years after that he actually became the chief executive officer. Nothing in life stays the same however, because Multibanco was bought out by Bank of America in 1985. After this period, Igor took this as an opportunity to move to Brazil’s largest bank in Rio de Janeiro named Unibanco. Unibanco was great, but he wanted to try something new and joined Libra Bank. A few years later, a position opened up the revered Standard Chartered Bank which had a satellite branch opening in Rio, so he jumped at the chance. Follow Igor Cornelsen on Twitter.
Standard Chartered bank has a great history and connection to London and the British Empire, which was a large fishing port and town at the time. Today, Standard Chartered is one of the best banks in Singapore and is very well respected, so perhaps because of this reputation that Standard Chartered has, Igor Cornelsen stayed with them for seven years before ultimately branching off on his own to advise with clients independently and provide the same level of service that he provided with the other banks.
He provides quality services which match his prior experience: One time when Russia defaulted on its debt and no one else thought that Russia would pay it back, Igor and his logical engineering mind thought this to be foolish. When the dust was settled, it turned out that Igor Cornelsen was right and Russia did eventually pay back their debts, so Igor was handsomely rewarded for his factual outlook on life, his propensity for reading Reuters, and his getting his information from the news rather than individual investors’ opinions.
