Before he opened his own investment firm in 1995, Cornelsen worked for a couple of London based Merchant Banks. These banks paid him in US dollars, which allowed him to invest in markets that before had been unobtainable.
Prior to working with Merchant Banks, Cornelsen was worked for Unibanco, based out of Rio de Janeiro. Cornelsen sat on Unibanco’s board of directors from 1978 to 1985. Prior to Unibanco, he was at Multibanco, another Rio de Janeiro base firm. He began working at Unibanco as a board member in 1974. He quickly rose through the ranks and was the banks CEO by 1976. His tenure was short, however, as he decided to leave Multibanco in 1978 after the firm was acquired by the Bank of America.
Prior to all of this, Cornelsen attended the Federal University of Panama. He began his college career studying engineering but switched to economics to focus on business.
