Some people have looked at the world of investing and seen it as a world full of traps and only being for the elite who have deep knowledge of finance. Some may not like it due to all the fees that brokers and financial planners collect, or because the stock market can cause sudden reactions from investors. But investing is actually a vital component to building savings for future endeavors. That’s why Igor Cornelsen is actively working today to help investors understand the benefits of investing.
Igor Cornelsen is quite clear that while investing in stocks, bonds or mutual funds certainly takes risk on your part, it is not gambling. Good stock buyers go into it very certain of what their buying and are able to avoid impulsive decisions. Finding good stocks isn’t about just knowing which stocks are currently hot. Cornelsen says you need to find low priced stock that comes from a new and innovative company, but you should look closely at their corporate structure and make sure you’re buying into a stable company. You also need to avoid the temptation to buy the shares in just one company stock and spread your portfolio around to allocate your assets and readjust it as needed.
Igor Cornelsen became the financial expert he is today through years of experience in Brazil’s banks. He managed the portfolios of both domestic and international clients, and he became a major consultant for Brazil’s Finance and Economics government department. Today he’s retired and usually takes up blogging and tweeting about investments as purely a hobby. But he does encourage American investors to learn about what Brazil has to offer and consider investing in that country. It does take some familiarity with their securities trading laws, and you do need to pay attention to politics, but Cornelsen says it’s certainly worth it.
