Confidence is a thing that helps individuals and companies do well. People and businesses that are confident have professional success which leads to financial success. Investors avoid businesses that aren’t confident and look for those that are. Igor Cornelsen of Bainbridge Investments Inc. says that if a company isn’t confident about their brand and products then he doesn’t see why anyone else would be.
As a C-level executive in the Brazilian financial sector, he led banks that had the confidence of their employees, customers, investors, and other stakeholders. Igor Cornelsen says he learned to be confident at a young age. His father was an engineer and wanted him to be one as well. Back then, in the 1960s, you went into the occupation your parents told you to.
He studied at the Federal University of Parana. For the first two years, he went along with his parent’s desire and studied engineering. However, he decided he didn’t like it at all no matter how much he wanted to. He took the bold step of changing his studies to economics, something he was far more interested in. His parents were disappointed at first but his confidence in his new career path mollified them.
Confident companies have better reputations and growth than those that aren’t confident. Igor Cornelsen says that as a financial advisor he looks for confident companies to invest in. He knows these companies are on the path to future success. He invests in companies in Brazil and internationally. To find the companies he invests in, he uses Reuters as his source of news because it is unbiased.
With one of the world’s largest economies, there are multiple opportunities for investors. He does caution people outside this country that there is a lot of red tape as there are endless rules to follow.
