Matt Badiali is The Mind Behind Real Wealth Strategist Newsletter

Matt Badiali is a reputable investment and financial advisor when it comes to natural resources, metal, and energy. He started his career as a scientist after graduating from Penn State University and Florida Atlantic University with a B.S. in earth sciences and Master of Science in geology respectively. He also attended the University of North Carolina whereby he was chasing his Ph.D., and during that time, he met a friend who introduced him to the field of finance. The friend had already achieved a Ph.D. in finance and therefore required Badiali’s assistance in developing investments methods for an average American.

Matt Badiali had some business experience after watching his father struggle with investments. With this experience and his academic qualification, he realized that it would be very easy to works with his friend and help people find reliable investments. Since then, he has been sharing investment advice with different investors not only in the United States but also in countries across the world. His main focus is on investments on metals, energy and natural resources. He usually shares his advice through writing and in the year 2017 he launched a newsletter known as Real Wealth Strategist together with Banyan Hill. The newsletter quickly became renown to many readers who are benefiting from his recommendations on natural resource stock.

During an interview with IdeaMensh, he said that the idea to establish the newsletter came as a result of his realization that investments on natural resources require extraordinary skills. Badiali found it as an easy way to reach out to different people who are interested in the industry. He also added that the idea was an excellent fit for his experience and education. Matt Badiali loves writing in the morning when his mind is still active and read more in the afternoon. Badiali brings his ideas to reality by demonstrating his actual experiences in writing, and this makes his written advice more real than infatuations. One thing that excites Matt Badiali is the change in energy consumption whereby people are relying more on electric-centric energy rather than oil and kerosene. By sharing his investment ideas through writing, Badiali has managed to help many people to make the right investments decisions especially on investment in natural resources.

Straightening Things Up: Mike Bagguley

Mike Bagguley has been busy the past few years. Based on his Crunchbase profile, he has had an interesting career thus far. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Warwick University in 1998 and has worked his way through the ranks at Barclays PLC  ever since. In June 2016, he was appointed as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), a role that he has succeeded in. 

For the past few years, Barclays PLC was under the leadership of Tom King. When he suddenly left, one of his colleagues was left in charge of the company, James E. Staley. Staley worked on ways to save the company money and be a force in the investment business once again, which is why Mike Bagguley came into the picture.

Mike Bagguley was already one of the top macro managers in the company, and COO of the investment division of Barclays. He was well versed in the field of macro management and made sure that the strategy in place when King left was still applicable. Bagguley even found ways to speed up the process so that the transition would be easier for the company as a whole.

In addition to becoming the COO, he was also tasked with streamlining strategies. He did this by looking at each part of the investment firm to determine which parts were profitable and which parts were not. Once this was complete, he implemented successful strategies to get the company back on track. Getting this right can helped Barclay’s become more competitive and profitable for the company as a whole.

The strategy of Mike Bagguley has paid off well for the company. By taking things one step at a time, he has been able to make Barclays a force to be reckoned with. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
