Igor Cornelsen was born in Curitiba, Brazil in October 1947. He joined the Federal University of Parana in 1965 to pursue a degree in engineering. Shortly after two years, he decided to change to another course and started studying economics.
He later received his degree in 1970. He was able to get a job at an investment bank. Here he was successful and would move to Rio where he got the opportunity to work as an investment banker.
He also excelled in this position and was named the best in his class which would contribute to his promotion to the Multiblanco board of directors in 1974. Two years later in 1976, Igor Cornelsen would again be promoted to be the bank’s CEO.
In 1978 the Bank of America acquired Multiblanco and Cornelsen decided to leave to seek other opportunities. He later landed a job at one of Brazil’s leading investment firms, Unibanco.
Due to the inflation rates in Brazil at that time, he decided to leave in 1985 and managed to get a job at Libra Bank which was a subsidiary of London Merchant Bank. He would work along with his colleagues on the board of directors and as a representative for the Standard Chartered Merchant Bank in Brazil.
After serving in this position for seven years, Cornelsen decided to leave in 1995 to start his investment firm. Here he offered the same kind of services he provided for London Merchant banks.
He continues to serve as an investment manager and carries out operations of his investment fund daily.
Igor Cornelsen has worked for many banks where he has gained experience in managing market fund stocks. This is made his transition to becoming an investment advisor very smooth. With this in mind, Cornelsen was inspired to start his firm.
