Matt Badiali on the Science of Investing

Before 2004, Matt Badiali was well on his way to pursuing a successful career as a geologist, having already secured a somewhat promising position in Miami, FL as an environmental geologist. After realizing that this was not the longterm solution for employment due to the dangerous environment and conditions under which he had to operate, Matt Badiali decided to pursue more education at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While there, he was propositioned by a friend, who was seeking to discover new methods of investing for the average investor, and he wished for Mr. Badiali to join him. Realizing that his background in geology could help him flourish in the world of investing, particularly in the energy, metals, and naturals resources sectors, he jumped at the opportunity. Since that time, he has blazed a very successful career path, helping to regularly secure double and triple-digit gains for his clients. In 2017, Matt Badiali joined Banyan Hill Publishing, and today, he is the editor of the newsletter and advisory service, Total Wealth Strategist.

Once he arrives at the office around 8:00 am, Matt Badiali begins writing. When writing, he always makes an attempt to connect with his audience on a personal level, due in part because of the weight that his information holds, as his clients’ portfolios are affected by many of his inclinations, but also because this relationship helps the information stick. On most occasion, Matt Badiali will include real-world examples of the strategies that he champions, believing that it brings things closer to home for his audience. He has also consistently taken a hands-on approach regarding investments, meaning, if he doesn’t know all about the investment, he will physically visit the place where things are happening. This approach has taken him all over the world, visiting drilling sites and mines in various countries, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Haiti, Switzerland, and Papua New Guinea. He has recently expressed significant excitement over the world’s implementation of all-electric cars.
