Born and bred in Curitiba, Brazil, Igor Cornelsen is a man whose career has seen quite better days. His baby steps to success began at the University of Parana, where he pursued engineering. Back then, the institution specialized in engineering programs making the competition for the course quite fierce. This saw him change his perspective after two years, and he began pursuing economics.

It’s during this period that he discovered that besides engineering, he had a passion for banking. Armed with nothing but knowledge and enthusiasm after the completion of his studies, Igor set out to look for work. Fortunately, the universe was on his side, and he got a job opportunity at a lucrative investment bank in Rio in 1970. He has always been a natural, and few years into his career, Igor Cornelsen rose above the ranks to become a member on the board of directors at Multiblanco and soon the CEO.

Around the mid-’70s Igor Cornelsen moved to Unibanco where he served for a few years before moving to Libra in 1985. He again moved to the Standard chartered merchant bank where he worked until 1995 before finally establishing his firm, Bainbridge investments.
