Chaturvedi has also gone on to hold a series of prestigious positions in his professional life, producing a roadmap of success which spans decades. In the late eighties and early nineties he was a branch manager at the State Bank of India. There he was tasked with the strategic planning and implementation of the branch’s marketing strategy for outreach programs to Indian expats in the USA. During his stint there he earned the Man of Year award.
He then moved on to become the Vice President and Senior Representative for US Operations at Grindlays Bank in New York. There he was head of product development, regulatory issues, and marketing.

It is of the utmost importance that when you are gathering information about what you want to invest in that it comes from unbiased sources according to Igor Cornelsen, an investment advisor. He has been involved in the investment industry for over 4 decades and has learned a great number of things about the economy and upcoming trends over the years. His predictions about the world economy have given him some great returns on his investments such as his predictions about the future of Russia.
When Russia defaulted on their loans due to economic problems, almost everyone in the world said that they would never even make an attempt to pay back their debt and would not re-enter the world market for a very long time. Igor Cornelsen was sure that they would due to the data that he had gathered on the subjects. While everyone was saying no, in the end, Russia did in fact make good on their debts and quickly was able to go back onto the world market.
This is just one of the examples where Igor Cornelsen ignored the opinions of everyone else and went straight towards the cold hard facts that he had found during his research. If he could give any advice to his younger self and new investors, he would tell them to stop listening to the opinions of others and do the research themselves. It is exceptionally important when making investments to look at the data before anyone has tried to analyze it. Everyone will have their own bias when making investment decisions based on many factors like who they are and where they are from.
When he is working, he starts his day when the markets in Europe open. While this is quite early, it gives him the chance to get the news surrounding the economies of the world quickly. One of his favorite sources of economic and political information is Reuters. By knowing the state of politics around the world, he can determine how a trend in the stock market will affect the economy globally instead of just locally.
