Many young investors are not experienced enough to start investing heavily, especially when it comes to foreign commodities and exchanges. A proper expert is needed to stay on course and make the right investments. This is what Igor Cornelsen currently does from his company Bainbridge in Florida. Though he spends some time giving investment advice, Igor is mostly retired at this point in his life.

As a major investment banker over the past couple of decades, Igor Cornelsen is a huge name back in Brazil, having made huge investment all over the country, while also managing various financial companies around the globe. Through his company Bainbridge, Igor is able to give his professional advice and opinions on the current markets in the United States and internationally.

For the new investor, investing in the stock market can be quite risky, and there are many more people who fail that succeed in this business. A deep understanding is needed before investing money into anything as well as an acceptance of the risk involved. Igor Cornelsen has published various books and articles that can be found in stores and online which goes over various tips and strategies for getting started in the investing business.

Igor’s most important tip for new investors, do not wait. The longer someone waits to start investing, the less money they will make in the long term and for their retirements. Building experience early on is key to being successful later on. Another important tip for beginners is to diversify and invest in multiple different markets. This minimizes the risks while increasing the chances for more profits. After investing deeper into the markets, it is also a smart idea to get an adviser with a good understanding of investments to help manage finances.

According to some of the latest statistics, at least half of young investors do not set any money aside for their own retirements. Igor is always advising the newer generations to plan ahead and regularly put into their retirement funds for the future so they are secure. Igor pointed out that many investors without a good adviser just stop buying a stock at some point and forget they haven’t been putting in money for retirement over all their years investing.

Adam Milstein grew up dreaming about safety and security – the security of his family – of his people – and of the Jewish Homeland. As a member of the Israeli Defense Forces, he followed General Arial Sharon across the Suez Canal and into Egypt during the Yom Kippur War of 1973.

After Milstein moved his family to America, he earned an MBA from the University of Southern California and went to work selling and managing commercial real estate. He later became a managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties, a firm owning and managing hundreds of properties valued at over two billion dollars.

When Adam Milstein told his teenage daughters that he wanted them to marry Jewish men, they pointed out that the Milstein family had long lived secular lives. He realized that Jews in America, especially Israeli Jews, did not include their religion as an important part of their lives. Although the older generations regarded themselves as Jews, their children learned little of Jewish history or their connection to Israel.

Adam Milstein decided then and there to reconnect with his religion and his homeland. Since the Milsteins were financially secure, he and his wife Gila turned their attention to religious matters. They established the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, supporting organizations and individuals with ties to Judaism in general and Israel in particular.

Among the organizations is the Israel on Campus Coalition, instilling a pride and a sense of empowerment in Jewish college students.

Another organization is StandWithUs, teaching American students of Jewish heritage more about Jewish and Israeli history in order to strengthen their connection to Israel.

Hasbara Fellowships enable students from American campuses to travel to Israel on a ten-day, expenses paid fact-finding trip in order to bring knowledge of Israel back with them to America.

To strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel, Milsteins established the Israeli-American Council (IAC).

In recognition of his charitable work and donations, Adam Milstein was named one of the Top 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World by the digital periodical Richtopi. via twitter

When the American Institute of Architects (AIA) chose Robert Ivy as its CEO in 2011, it did so not just because of his qualifications but more so because of the contributions he has made in the profession of architecture. Ivy has a lot of credits under his sleeve. Perhaps the AIA thought at that time that no other man could further the goals and mission of the organization better than Ivy.

The AIA is the premiere organization of licensed architects in the United States. It has continuously benefited the nation more than it benefited the members of its ranks. This organization is dedicated to serving the citizens of the land by conducting community development initiatives, providing public outreach programs, and offering public education so that the general public will have a better understanding and appreciation of their profession.

Before being appointed as Executive VP/CEO of AIA, Ivy has been active in the profession’s print media. He has been working as the Chief Editor of Architectural Record and has steered its editorial policy since 1966. Being a fellow of the AIA, he is in the forefront of the organization’s advocacies and uses the AR to promote its objectives and announce its activities. As a result, it is not just the AIA that profits from his initiatives, but the profession of architecture as well.

Part of the working time of Ivy is spent in the offices of McGraw-Hill Construction. He is the Vice President and Editorial Director of this large family publication. Ivy’s hands are full in guiding the editorial policies of this journal considering its large editorial staff. McGraw-Hill is composed of several family publications and one of Ivy’s important tasks is to see to it that the architectural contents that they come up with are of high quality and of great value to the profession and the public.

As can be gleaned from the above, Ivy’s talent is not just confined in designing houses and structures, but also in the field of writing and editing. He got his training in these areas at the University of the South, in Sewanee, Tennessee where he earned his English B.A. degree. After graduation, he further developed his talents and skills in these areas sufficient enough to be appointed as the VP of McGraw-Hill Construction. He is also the editor of RECORD, another journal. Ivy was instrumental in increasing the readership and circulation of this journal all over the world.

Upon his appointment as Exec VP/CEO of AIA, his colleagues were glad that he will now be more committed to the goals and objectives of the organization and will focus his talents and skills in reaching them. Its president in 2010, George Miller, revealed that the Board of the AIA was unanimous in the selection of Ivy as its new man on the helm.

Not many of the stock analysts working on Wall Street or running hedge funds or mutual funds took earth science and geology courses in college. They majored in Finance and earned their MBAs before starting out as brokers and traders.

However, Matt Badiali, editor of the newsletter Real Wealth Strategist, is that major exception. In college he planned to become a practicing scientist, a geologist, after he finished his schooling. However, while working toward his doctorate, he made friends with an expert investor who needed his scientific knowledge to evaluate companies in the natural resources sector of the economy. That includes metals such as gold, silver and platinum. It includes oil, natural gas and other forms of energy. It includes many commodities and agricultural products.

Companies that are mining copper or refining oil from shale cannot be accurately evaluated from an office in a lower Manhattan skyscraper. That’s why Badiali has visited such countries as Turkey, Peru, Iraq, Singapore, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Switzerland and Haiti. He needs to see the mining operations and oil rigs for himself. He interviews corporate officers in their headquarters and operations managers in the field. He doesn’t believe what companies say until he checks them out for himself. He takes a boots on the ground attitude toward investing. Learn more at Seeking Alpha about  Matt Badiali

Because so few people have his dual expertise in both the science and business evaluation of natural resource investments, Matt Badiali decided to start a newsletter so ordinary people such as his father could benefit from his experiences. Banyan Hill Publishing began putting out his Real Wealth Strategist in 2017. In it, he keeps readers up to date on developments in the metals, energy and natural resource sector. He recommends stocks that he is certain will provide great value in the future. And every week he tells readers how the companies he recommended are performing in the market. He continues to meet with such industry leaders as Ross Beaty and T. Boone Pickens. He interviews company CEOs, other expert natural resources investors and experts in precious metals such as gold and silver.

Recently he expressed the interesting opinion that soon electricity will provide for almost all of humanity’s energy needs. This won’t happen until manufacturers develop extremely high-capacity batteries. However, when they have batteries capable of storing enough power to run entire cities, humanity will phase out gasolene, propane and diesel fuels. Already electronic cars are taking over the automobile industry. And his mining expertise will still be needed, because those cars will require metals and minerals.
