Matt Badiali is a “hands-on” investor, trained geologist, college instructor, consultant, and natural resources expert for Banyan Hill Publishing. He is becoming known for his full-on investigative approach to conducting research on investments and investment prospects. His financial detective work has taken him around the world to such places as Haiti, Hong Kong, Iraq, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, and numerous other locations.
Badiali’s Education And Work Experience
After graduating from high school, Badiali attended the Pennsylvania State University. There he earned a B.S. in Earth Sciences. He next went to the Florida Atlantic University where he garnered a Masters in Geology.
On his official website, he notes that he went on to teach geology at both “Duke University and the University of North Carolina.” He has also been employed as a consultant for an environmental business and a resident geologist for an unnamed oil drilling corporation. More recently he signed on with Banyan Hill as their official natural resources expert.
Badiali said he has “studied natural resources for over two decades.” He adds that he is “considered an expert in the mining, energy and agricultural industries.” This is due largely to the fact that he has been employed “on drill rigs … owned oil wells … explored abandoned mines … all to make profitable investments in natural resources.”
Badiali’s Business Travels
In his business travels, he has toured numerous oil wells and mines across the globe, analyzed a lot of different geological data, and interviewed many CEOs as well. Life experience has taught him that if you truly want to know what you are getting into with any given investment you should go and see it for yourself. In fact, he has the same attitude about many things in life including a business’ performance and politics. The best way to make certain any investment is truly safe is to investigate in person.
Badiali’s education and experience in geology has also helped him in his investigation of potential investments. He can spot specific “red flags” thanks to his geologic background. For example, Badiali notes that when it comes to small drilling businesses, drilling is generally “the largest” company expense. Observing the drilling crew can reveal quite a lot about both the overall health and future investment potential of a drilling company. For more than a decade now, Badiali has used his experience, education and investment training to discover profitable investments.
