As an investment advisor and CEO of his company, Bainbridge Group, Igor Cornelsen has a had a 40-year career based on long-term investing and careful, practical assessment of ecomomies. Though he spends much of his time in Florida, USA, Igor Cornelsen is originally from Brazil. He was born in 1947 in the city of Curitiba. He parlayed an early interest in things engineering into his enrollment at the University of Parana. However, economics caught his eye in the intererim, and he graduated with an economics degree instead in 1970.
Taking his appreciation for the values of statistical math, he built a steady and impressive early career in investment banking. He worked for Multibanco and Unibanco in Brazil until 1985 and then moved to London to work at the Standard Chartered Merchant Bank. He founded an investment agency, which was thereafter bought in 1995.
In 1995, having made a name for himself in the industry, Mr. Cornelsen founded Bainbridge, a team of investors he personally trains and to whom he brings his practical and long-term investing approach learned from a pre-computer era.
Igor Cornelsen works much of his day on learning and assessing the current economic sphere. His means of practicality have managed to bring him and the individuals and groups for whom he’s acted as an advisor through markets that were experiencing uncertainty for a time. A key part to his method is to accurately appreciate potential in a low market in practical terms, allowing him to appropriately allocate funds for later gains. This has borne out in his performance in not only his home country of Brazil, which has undergone such incidents as inflation crises, but other parts of the world as well.
Igor Cornelsen continues to function as CEO of the Bainbridge Group and to act as an advisor and trainer and manager of some of Brazil’s largest banking firms.
