Born in 1947 in Brazil, Igor Cornelsen joined the Federal University of Parana in 1965 with an interest of pursuing engineering courses. It was the only institution in the area of Parana and Santa Catarina that was offering these courses, therefore, qualifying to join was a coveted achievement.
Igor Cornelsen studied the engineering courses for two years and then decided to switch his focus to economics because it interested him more than engineering did. He graduated in 1970 from the University and got his first job in Multibanco, an investment bank. In this time, it was common economic students to get hired by investment banks because they had skills of calculating interest rates. Organizations had not yet started using computers as they are today.
With his skills in the investment industry, Igor Cornelsen advanced to an investment banker. He was a hard worker, spending many hours in the office developing strategies for the company. He became a member of the board in 1974 and two years later, advanced to the CEO position.
He left the company in 1978, following the acquisition of Multibanco by Bank of America. Igor Cornelsen was then hired by Unibanco, another investment firm, where he served until 1985 before joining the Libra Bank Plc as an Investment Advisor. It was a moment of transforming his career because then his remuneration came in dollars. He viewed it as an investment opportunity. Due to his efforts in the Libra Bank PLC, he was promoted to a member of the board of the directors.
His in-depth knowledge in the investment industry motivated him to start his company, Bainbridge Investment Inc. Igor Cornelsen was interested in putting all his experience to work in his investment firm. Currently, the company operates from the Bahamas and it engages in developing investment plans for clients and to provide investment consultancy services to individual investors
